Hop into Beer Brewing with Open Source

Brewtarget: Hop into Beer Brewing with Open Source @ Linux.com. Rikki writes -

If you’ve always wanted to brew your own beer, you’ll be glad to know there’s an app for that. Created by Philip Lee, Brewtarget is an open source application that helps home brewers create and manage beer recipes. We talk to Lee about Brewtarget’s history, its features, and its future.

Since my college days at the University of Texas, I’ve wanted to start home brewing my own beer. One of my college roommates dabbled in home brewing for a while, and now I’m friends with several members of the Lawrence Brewer’s Guild. Maybe by the time my daughter goes to college, I will have hopped into home brewing, and when I do, I’ll have a free, open source program to help me master my mixes of fermentables.

Philip Lee is an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science doctoral candidate who brews his own beer. In fact, he put his computer science chops to use in his home brews by developing Brewtarget, a free, open source application that helps brewers create and manage beer recipes. In this interview, Lee explains what happens when you mix open source programming with a passion for brewing beer.
