Exciting times! After we’ve recently announced the launch of a new feature to our Better Brewing App: Fermentation Tracking, we’re now happy to get you up to date with the latest changes to the BB App, a series of design & usage improvements that make it even more intuitive and easy to use.
Without further ado, here is what to expect:
The Results Screen
The first thing you’ll notice when reaching the Results page is that the elements have been slightly rearranged and redesigned, including:
- There’s a new Info button for the Dilution in parts section. This button opens up a pop-up with further explanations on how to enter your dilution values.
- The Result bubbles have been reorganized. The budding index bubble is now separated from the green concentration bubble, making it easier to interpret your data at a glance.
- The Pitch Rate Calculator button leading to, of course, the pitch rate calculator, is now more prominent.
- Also, importantly, the Results Screen now contains an Edit button, allowing you to change the name of the analysis and the details having to do with the dilution. It also allows you to leave a comment, which can be very useful when later browsing through your old analyses.
Once you click the Edit button, you’ll end up on this page:
You can now enter different values.
Next just click on the OK button and your values are changed. If you change the dilution values, the concentration is automatically recalculated.
The Sharpness Indicator
The Sharpness Indicator has also been improved. The background against which the numbers are displayed is now dark gray (whereas it was transparent before), making it easier to see the data.
Also, once you click on it, you get a pop-up with important info on how the Sharpness Indicator works.
A new Low Viability Warning
Because yeast viability is such an important parameter in fermentation, we’ve now added an orange warning, indicating that the viability is below 95%, whereas before you would only get the red warning (which is still available) for viability below 90%. This can be particularly useful when harvesting and repitching your yeast.
That’s about it! Have fun oculyzing and if you have any questions, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
