— Coffee Tracking —
Brew Timer comes with detailed coffee tracking built in. You can track everything from the simple "Name" and "Roaster", to the more fine-grained details like "Varietal" and "Harvest Date". To save you from typing it all out, on iOS 15 and later Brew Timer supports scanning coffee bags to automatically extract these coffee details for you.

— Brew Journal —
Every time you complete a brew, Brew Timer creates a new entry in your personal Brew Journal. Grind, coffee and water amounts are all tracked automatically. Record your own notes to capture thoughts on technique and taste for next time.

— Brew Dashboard —
After each brew, Brew Timer compiles a one-stop dashboard to make it easy to add tasting notes, reference coffee details, and tweak your recipe for next time.

Brew Timer supports metric (mL/g) and imperial (fl. oz/oz) and will convert recipes to Aeropress-specific units for you.
Brew Timer works without a scale, but it is recommended.

What's New in the Latest Version v1.19.1

Last updated on Dec 8, 2022
Old Versions
• Adds a new URL scheme, brewtimer:// that allows you to launch the app.
• This year's Year in Coffee is now available. Check it out in Settings!

Happy brewing!
Stephen

Missed v1.19? Read on.

Background brewing. AeroPress plunge guides. +14 more changes!

Background Brewing
———————————
This one’s for the multi-taskers. Want to send a quick message while your French press steeps? Snap a photo of that beautiful bloom? Brew Timer is now fully background-aware, so go right ahead!

And don’t worry about missing anything while you’re multi-tasking. Brew Timer will notify you shortly ahead of time so you can get ready for the next pour, bloom or press.

Head to Settings › Background Alerts to turn it on.

AeroPress Plunge Guide
—————————————
A perfectly timed AeroPress plunge. Just the right speed. Even pressure throughout. So satisfying.
Is such a thing possible? I think so, and Brew Timer’s here to make it easier to achieve.

Now in any recipe with a timed “Plunge” or “Press” step, the app will show you where your water level should be to ensure you finish on-time. Just follow along for a satisfyingly consistent press every time.

Brew Timer will detect whether you have a classic AeroPress or a Go. Brewing tiny recipes in your classic? It’s just one tap to switch.

Tiny Things
——————
• Added an option to always use Light or Dark mode instead of following the system setting. (iOS 13+)
• Added a new French Press recipe from Barista Hustle.
• Added Scott Rao’s recipe for the Tricolate brewer.
• Added the grinder name to each journal entry, for those of you with multiple grinders.
• Made it easier to add new steps when creating a new recipe. There’s now a … button in the bottom right so you can add a next step with a few less taps and scrolls. (iOS 14+)
• Added a new (exciting!) project to Labs. Check it out in Settings › Brew Timer Labs.
• Improved the detection of drawdown steps for total brew time. Please check that this doesn’t change your total brew times unexpectedly (tap the time at the top left of the step list and scroll to “View Steps”). Let me know if it does!
• Updated the Year in Review cards so you can click “See All” even when you have less than 4 roasters or varietals in a single year. Helpful to see how many coffees you had from each.
• Switch grinders a lot? The grinder list now shows grinders you’ve used recently at the top to make it easier.
• Brew with multiple grinders? You can now see how many times you’ve used each grinder in Settings › Grinders.
• Added a new option when you launch the app for the first time to get a reminder the next time you are planning to brew some coffee.
• Fixed a bug that prevented duplicating a coffee immediately after it was created.
• Fixed a bug where the Pour Compass wouldn’t display for the first step of a recipe.
• Fixed a bug where cooling reminders would not be shown in some rare edge cases, like if you had Brew Timer and Control center open at the same time.

Searchable coffees. Brew summaries. Coffee color picker. And more!

Coffee Search ’n Summaries
———————————————
When dialing in new beans, it’s helpful to learn from your past brews. Now with Brew Timer it’s also easy. First, use the brand new Coffee Search to find a similar coffee. Every coffee is fully searchable across any dimension — country, process, roaster, you name it.

Once you find a similar coffee, you can use it to pick a good starting point for your new beans. Just tap the new book icon in the top right to view the full list of associated journal entries. If you just want the high-level picture, Brew Timer gives you a summary of your settings right at the top.

Not tracking your coffees yet? Start today and enhance all your future brews.

Coffee Color Picker
——————————
Coffee roasters often choose a distinct color for each bag of coffee. Now you can use the same colors in Brew Timer! To make it easy, you can even use your camera to pick a color straight from the bag! Tap the palette icon (to the right of the coffee’s name) while editing a coffee to get started.

Revamped Labs
————————
Do you like to stay on the cutting edge? Be sure to check out the Brew Timer Labs in the app’s settings. It’s got a slick new design which makes it easier to see all the new and updated experiments.

Tiny Things
——————
• Made it easier to paste or scan text into fields when editing a coffee. It was a little finicky before but now you can tap anywhere in the row to show the standard Paste menu.
• Updated the brew journal to show the full date for older brews. This should make it easier to find old entries since they now won’t all say "1 year ago".
• Straightened out some confusing naming between brews and recipes.
• Added a checkmark when viewing sort options for a list of coffees. Now you can easily tell how they are currently sorted.
• Fixed a bug where text in the Settings coffee list would sometimes get clipped.
• Fixed a few bugs which could cause your list of coffees to lag and stutter. It should be silky smooth now, even while searching!
• Fixed a rare crash when adjusting your grind after completing a brew then changing the associated grinder.

iOS 12 Fix
——————
The last release crashes on iOS 12. Hopefully this one doesn't -- if it still does please email me! (brewtimerapp@gmail.com)

From last time:

Holiday Fun
————————
Thanks for using Brew Timer this year! This is the last release of 2021, and it's got a little something special for the holidays. Head over to the app's settings to spread some holiday cheer.

If you missed it, check out your year in coffee while you're there!

Tiny Things
————————
• Added a new button to perform on-demand iCloud backups. I don't think you should need to use this, so please let me know if you do!
• Added the ability to send me extra logs that will help me debug iCloud issues.
• Fixed a typo in Labs - can't believe how long it's been there.

1.17.2
Nov 14, 2021
Tiny Things
————————
• Added a small upsell and improved explainer of the total brew time feature. If you haven't tried it yet, do take it for a spin!
• Added a switch in Settings › Units to use grams instead of ml for water in espresso brews. Handy if you think of your shot volume in terms of mass.
• Added the ability to view all of your journals under Settings › Journals.
• Fixed a bug where the brew dashboard might show a double negative sign in some cases.
• This release removes support for iOS 10. If you can't upgrade past that you can still continue to use the app with all of its features up to the prior release.
• Updated several of the underlying libraries that keep Brew Timer running. This means hopefully less bugs for you, and an easier time for me to make the app better. This also might make the app launch a little faster if I'm lucky.

One Tiny Thing
————————
• Fixes Bean Scanner on iOS 15.1 so you can once again see the buttons that let you continue scanning. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Not sure what Bean Scanner is? You can read about it in the v1.17 release notes. Go to the app's settings > What's New, and tap the icon in the top right.

Bean Scanner
————————
Tracking which coffee beans you’ve tried is a great way to build your coffee knowledge. Unfortunately it often feels a bit tedious. That all changes today!

Meet Bean Scanner: now you can use your camera to magically record all the nitty-gritty details from your coffee bag. By melding iOS 15’s Live Text with Brew Timer’s coffee smarts you can do this without typing a single word on your keyboard! Try it out, track your coffee, build your knowledge.

When you’re editing a coffee, tap the scan icon in the top right to start scanning. This feature requires iOS 15 and an iPhone XS/XR (2018) or newer. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Precision Brew Time
————————————
Brews are like snowflakes — no two are exactly alike. Even though your recipe "should" take 3:30, sometimes your total brew time is 3:50 or even 3:05! You should always trust you tastebuds, but when you need a little help total brew time can provide insight.

To make that as easy as possible, Brew Timer can now precisely track your total brew time. You only need to tap once when your brew is complete and your total brew time will be recorded in your Brew Journal forever.

But that’s not all! To help you dial in new beans, also check out the Brew Dashboard after you brew to quickly compare with your last brew or an average of past brews.

Tap the new time button to the top-left of a recipe’s steps to start tracking.

Tiny Things
———————
• Added water temperature to the bottom of the timer screen. Handy for when you’ve started a brew but need to quickly double check your kettle setting.
• Added the 1Zpresso K-Pro, K-Plus, and K-Max grinders.
• Added two recipes for the Hario Switch.
• Added a link to the fledgling /r/brewtimer subreddit under Settings > Brew Timer Labs. Do join us!
• Updated the app for iOS 15. Mostly under-the-hood fixes, but there are a few tiny visual tweaks you may notice.
• Fixed broken links for the included AeroPress championship recipes.
• Fixed a few memory leaks — for the non-nerds out there this means Brew Timer is less likely to crash or behave weirdly.
• Fixed a bug that caused the "View What’s New" banner to hide too early in some cases.
• Fixed a bug that would cause some of a recipe’s steps to get hidden after adding a coffee to it.

A Lot More Grinders
——————————
This release adds 21 new grinders: Fellow Ode, Timemore C2, Niche Zero, Kinu M47 and many others. Don't see your grinder? The "Add Your Own" grinder screen is now redesigned to make it easier to remedy that. And if you want something custom, I've also set the app up to support that — just get in touch!

I've found tweaking grind is an easy way to improve your coffee. Add your grinder to a recipe and give it a shot!

Water Temperature
—————————
Grind and technique have a big impact on your brew's extraction but temperature matters too! Brew Timer can now keep track of each recipe's water temperature for you. Simply enable temperature tracking in the app's settings to get started.

(For convenience, temperature is also editable from the Brew Journal after you brew.)

Brew Timer Labs
————————
I like to experiment with coffee-related ideas and I'd love for you to join me! "Brew Timer Labs" is the new home for all my experimental coffee projects — try them out, tell me what you think, and suggest new ones. Get your lab coat and safety goggles, then head over to the app's settings to check it out.

Tiny Things
——————
• Brew Timer now has basic espresso support for those of you lucky enough to have a machine. Try one of the two included recipes to see which fits your style.
• Brew Timer's recipe library now includes recipes for the Fellow Stagg [X] and [XF]. Check them out!
• You can now delete brew journal entries. This is useful if you are testing recipes but didn't actually brew them.
• Added an export option for your brew journal data. Handy if you want to do your own data analysis!
• Shrank the Cancel and Save buttons when you're editing a note so you have a bit more room to type.
• You can now tap any grinder to preview it in the app's settings.
• Added support for coffee bag masses entered in kilograms. That's a lot of coffee!
• Added water temperatures to all included recipes.
• Cleans up coffees that were accidentally duplicated due to a bug in a database migration last release. Feel free to email me about this if you still see issues.
• The "Welcome to Brew Timer" screen you see after installing the app was updated to be more useful (and a bit prettier too).
• Fixed a bug on the Brew Dashboard while changing the grind for grinders with both macro and micro grind adjustment settings, like the Baratza Sette. Adjusting the grind across a macro boundary previously skipped the entire micro range. It no longer does.
• Fixed a crash when you tried to preview a recipe someone shared with you.
• Fixed a rare crash when saving changes to a coffee.

Happy holidays! I hope you have a great 2021 filled with delicious coffee. Enjoy the new release!

* If the app was crashing, this should fix it. If you're still experiencing crashes please email me at brewtimerapp@gmail.com

(There’s a lot in this one, so remember you can always see these notes under “What’s New” in the app’s settings.)

Steps + Water
————————
You can now specify how much water is poured for each step of a recipe. This makes it easy to get a quick overview of a recipe, but more importantly it unlocks Brew Timer’s new Pour Compass and Auto Adjustments features. More about those below!

Pour Compass
———————
Ever finish your 60 second pour in 40 seconds? Oops. Fortunately Brew Timer is here to help! Now the app automatically identifies longer pours and computes checkpoints to help you along the way. As you brew, check the new Pour Compass to see what mass youshould be pouring towards. Once you get there, check the compass to see what’s next.

This is particularly helpful when you are getting familiar (or re-familiar) with a recipe, but I find it makes all my brews a bit more relaxed. Just edit any step where you pour water to get started. Here’s to a future full of perfect pours!

Auto Adjustments
—————————
You’ve dialed in your beans using 20g of coffee, but there’s only 15g left in the bag. Don’t waste it! Simply lock your coffee:water ratio, slide from 20 to 15g, and Brew Timer will automatically adjust the water poured in each step proportionally (either by volume only or by time too, your choice!).

This feature is best for smaller adjustments. If you brew recipes at 2-3x (or more) volume, I’d love to chat with you about it. Drop me a line! (My contact info is in the app’s settings page.)

Year in Review
———————
With 2020 behind us, I thought it would be fun to look back on our coffee journeys. Head over to the app’s settings to see what yours looked like! If you’ve been brewing with Brew Timer since before 2020, you can also check out some stats from those years to see how things have changed.

Tiny Things
——————
• Alongside the Pour Compass changes, the step editing screen got a fresh coat of paint. You can now flip between steps quickly, as well as discard your edits if you change your mind.
• Did you know that 1 mL of water weighs 1 gram? This is a handy fact for weighing water as you pour, so there’s now a note in the water unit settings pointing it out.
• Added a couple new Chemex recipes (for all sizes). Thanks to Arek for the suggestions!
• Added the ability to create a copy of a coffee if you rebuy a second bag of the same coffee. This makes it easier to track coffees that are mostly the same but have a different roast date or roast level. Thanks Joel for the idea!
• You can now long press the notes bar at the top of a recipe to quickly peek your last note. (iOS 13+)
• If you long press an entry in the Brew Journal, you can now view the recipe steps used for that entry. (iOS 13+)
• Updated all of the provided recipes to support Pour Compass and Auto Adjustments.
• Updated recipe sharing so you can share and receive recipes that specify water amounts on steps.
• If you were using Display Zoom in some cases, you would see black bars around the app. Those should be gone now.
• Fixed a bug where typing in a coffee mass in ounces didn’t save the right value.

More Recipes
———————
If you brew with a Kalita Wave (both sizes!), V60 or Clever Dripper, Brew Timer now comes preloaded with a few more fan favorites. Head over to Settings > Included Brews to try them out. Shout out to Wendy and Matt for the suggestions!

More Grinders
———————
You have always been able to create your own grinder in Brew Timer, but this release adds a few more common grinders for your convenience.

Skippable Drawdowns
———————————
Sometimes your pourover’s drawdown doesn’t take exactly the prescribed amount of time. Instead of waiting for the timer to finish in these cases, you can now tap the new “Done Draining” button to finish. Simply name your drawdown step “Drain” to enable this feature.

(P.S. If you’d like to see more enhancements like this, let me know!)

Tiny Things
——————
• Added the ability to view what was new in prior versions in the app's settings.
• Fixed a case where the coffee/water/grind sliders would jump around unexpectedly sometimes.
• Fixed a color issue when browsing journal entries in dark mode.
• Removed some unused code to make the app a little smaller.

Brew Dashboard
————————
My goal for Brew Timer has always been to help you brew better coffee. Now, when you finish brewing a recipe Brew Timer has a new dashboard with several tools to make that even easier:
• Dial in your extraction by tweaking coffee:water ratio and grind.
• Quickly view your coffee tasting notes, bean details and recent brew journal entries.
• Monitor your coffee’s cooling progress and toggle alerts.

I’ve found tasting my coffee and tweaking the recipe has lead me to some tasty brews — I hope this dashboard makes it easier for you to do the same!

What’s New
——————
When Brew Timer updates, you’ll now see a small banner at the top of your recipe list. You can tap it to see what’s new in the latest version. The banner will dismiss itself automatically within a day, but you can always view “What’s New” in the app’s settings.

Enhanced Backups
—————————
This release adds a brand new fully-automatic backup system. Brew Timer will backup your brews, beans, and journal periodically as you’re using the app. Hopefully this is a feature you never need. But if you do need to recover some lost data, Brew Timer has your back.

P.S. Backups are stored in iCloud and are completely private. I couldn’t access them if I wanted to. Please email me if you have any questions!

Tiny Things
——————
• While viewing a recipe, you can long press on a coffee to jump straight to viewing its details. (iOS 13 only)
• You can now long press a brew journal entry to quickly change the coffee associated with it. Useful if you need to change the coffee on several entries in a row. (iOS 13 only)
• Added a few more common varietal suggestions when editing a bean.
• Fixed a crash when trying to share a brew with a / in its name.
• This is the first release without iOS 9 support. This makes keeping the app up to date easier for me and should also make it a bit smaller.

Coffee Tracking!
–––––––––––––––
Technique and timing are crucial, but they’re nothing without a good coffee bean. And now you can track both in Brew Timer!

Just head to any recipe and add whatever coffee you’re currently brewing. It's a breeze to track as much (or as little) as you want and the more you add the smarter Brew Timer becomes.
• Add an 8oz bag? Brew Timer will let you know when you're about to run out.
• Roast date? Brew Timer will automatically monitor how long it's been.
• Tasting notes? Brew Timer will put them front and center so you know what to look for.

As a bonus, coffees are automatically added to every brew journal entry. Ethiopians are in season again and you want to look up your last Ethiopian pourover? Brew Timer has your back.

Try it out and let me know what you think!

Little Things
––––––––––––
• If the last step of you recipe is timed, it will now vibrate/ring so you know when it's finished. Thanks to Matthew for the suggestion!
• Start a recipe, but forget if you tweaked your grind? You can now see grind setting while running a timer.
• I redesigned the brew journal to look a little snazzier both as you scroll and while you're editing. Check it out!
• Some other tiny visual tweaks, bonus points if you spot them!

Recipe Sharing (and a surprise!)
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Have a recipe you're particularly proud of? I'd love to try it out! And now Brew Timer makes it so easy. In just a few taps, you can export your recipe and text/email/airdrop it to anyone. Their copy of Brew Timer will automatically import it in another few taps. Give it a shot!

Also, I wasn't kidding about trying your recipes so send 'em over to brewtimerapp@gmail.com. (Not to bribe you, but there may or may not be a surprise waiting if you do!)

New Recipe: Siphon
–––––––––––––––––––
Fire, science and coffee — a winning combination for sure! If you have a siphon brewer (aka vacuum brewer) head over to settings to enable Brew Timer's newest included recipe. New to siphons? It's a great recipe to start with. Siphon pro? It's a solid base to copy and tweak. Thanks to Jeff for making the suggestion!

Little Things
––––––––––––
• Fixed a bug where the list of recipes wouldn't refresh after you enabled one of the included recipes in settings.
• Fixed a crash that could occur after deleting a recipe in some rare cases.
• Fixed a crash that could occur when editing coffee or water amounts.

Dark Mode
––––––––––
A bright screen can be blinding if you're an early morning coffee brewer. Brew Timer will now switch to a darker palette if you're on iOS 13 and have Dark Mode enabled. No more squinting!

Little Thing
–––––––––––
• A recent release added a 60g and 500ml limit to coffee and water amounts. That limit is now removed! When editing coffee or water drag the slider all the way to the right, then tap the pencil icon. Thanks to Joel for pointing this out!


Thanks so much for using Brew Timer!

(Much) Better Coffee / Water / Grind Editing
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Trying to move a slider to exactly 20.5 grams of coffee was never fun. The brand new editing panel makes that a thing of the past! You can now tap the “+” or “-“ to quickly adjust coffee, water, and grind by small amounts. But that’s not all — it also:

• is easier to reach on big-screened phones.
• actually fits on small-screened phones.
• hopefully fixes issues with adjusting 2-level grinders like the Baratza Vario. (If it doesn’t, please email me!)

All-Time Statistics
––––––––––––––––––
How many coffees have you made with Brew Timer? How much time have you spent honing your technique? Open up settings to find out! Brew Timer now shows you some fun numbers in the app’s settings and also at the bottom of each recipe. Check ‘em out!
(Don’t worry, these stats come from the automatic Brew Journal and never leave your phone.)

New Grinder: Capresso Infinity
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
Another release, another grinder. The Capresso Infinity now comes built in. Shout out to Mark for helping make this happen!

Little Things
––––––––––––
• The settings page was getting a bit unruly, so I did some late spring cleaning.
• If you have a keen eye, you might notice some subtle design improvements.
• This is the first release without iOS 8 support. If you’re still on iOS 8 and that makes you sad, please shoot me an email.

Thanks so much for using Brew Timer!

Cooling Reminders
––––––––––––––––––
The bad news: when you drink coffee, letting the temperature vary can change the taste. The good news: Brew Timer can now help you keep that consistent too. You can choose how long you want to let your coffee cool and Brew Timer will notify you when that time has passed. Try it out after you make your next cup!

Louder Step Change Sounds
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––
The alert sound between steps was quite quiet. It's now much easier to hear and you can even adjust it with your phone's volume slider.

Little Things
––––––––––––
• The just-finished-a-recipe screen now looks a little prettier.
• The support email in settings was wrong. It's now the right one.

Thanks so much for using Brew Timer!

New Recipe!
––––––––––––
Have you heard of the 4:6 Method? It's the V60 method that won Tetsu Kasuya the World Brewer's Cup. It also happens to be my new favorite method for V60, so I've added it as one of the Included Brews. Head to "Settings > Included Brews" to check it out. Let me know what you think!

"Hey Siri, let's make some coffee"
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
On iOS 12, you can now brew coffee with your voice! Brew Timer now supports Siri Shortcuts to launch straight into any of your brew recipes.
(But how do I use it?)
First, brew your favorite recipe. Then, head to "Settings > Siri & Search > All Shortcuts" and search for Brew Timer. Tap to record a phrase for Siri.

One Bugfix and One Improvement
––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
• The main brew recipe list is now sorted with brew recipes you've made recently at the top. I hope this makes it easier to find your favorite recipes. (Especially if you're like me and have a lot of them!)
• Fixed a crash that could occur if you launched a brew using quick actions (where you press hard on the Brew Timer icon and pick a recipe).

Three new grinders! — If you have a Baratza Sette, Forte or Vario, you can now add them to your brew recipes.
Tap to edit! — If you'd prefer to type in your coffee or water settings, it just got much easier. Just tap the new pencil icon above the sliders.
Reviews! — You may start seeing an occassional (I promise!) pop up asking you to rate the app. Ratings help me keep making the app better, so I truly appreciate it when you take the time to leave one. (Plus it's really easy. You don't even have to leave the app to do it!)

This release is like a scavenger hunt. A few tiny things have changed to make Brew Timer more enjoyable to use. Can you find them all?

Found them? Just want to see the answers? Here they are:
• Brew Timer looks even more dapper on iOS 11 thanks to some design tweaks. You’ll notice things are rounder and more floaty.
• Got an iPhone X in the mail? Brew Timer is ready to make some tasty coffee as soon as it arrives.
• Added a review button in the app's settings. Love Brew Timer? This is the button for you. We read every review and love to hear from you!
• Fixed a busted back button on iOS 11.
• Some popups used to fall off the screen and now they don’t.

It’s the small things that matter, right? We certainly think so! We’ve fixed up some rough edges (thanks for the feedback!) and added a few small features this release.

• Step Noise: Maybe you get distracted while you pour. Or maybe you’re so focused you don’t look at the timer. Either way, check out the settings to enable a noise between steps.
• Pause Button: Getting interrupted mid-brew is the worst. Do you start over, or just give it your best guess? Neither! You can use the shiny new pause button to pause any of your timed steps.
• Edit Notes: Remember something about your last brew and want to add it to your notes? You can now swipe on any note to edit it.
• Lock Ratio: Tap the lock button to adjust coffee or water and maintain your ratio. Great for when you grind a bit extra by mistake!
• Confirm Before Exiting Brew: You’ll now be prompted before exiting a running timer. Less accidental exits! Yay!
• Better Step Editing: You can now rearrange steps and tap to edit them at the same time.

Thanks so much for using Brew Timer!

— Brew Journal —
Remember your last brew? Hopefully it was amazing, but maybe it didn't go so well (it's okay, we've all been there). If only there was a way to remember what went right (... or what didn't). Good news! Brew Timer now has an automatic brew journal that tracks brew parameters (grind, coffee mass, water volume) and lets you add notes each time you complete a brew. Try a new technique or taste a new flavor? Your brew journal is the perfect place to track it all.

— 3D Touch Recent Recipes —
Have one of those fancy phones with 3D Touch? Use 3D Touch on the app icon to jump straight into one of your recently completed brews. You now have a few more seconds to enjoy your coffee, just like that.

And now for a few less-exciting things:
• The 'X' button is now easier to hit after you complete a brew.
• Fixed a crash that happened when you tried to brew with an ocean's worth of water. That's a lot of coffee...
• Fixed the spelling of Baratza (how embarassing).
• Migrated to Swift 3

Thanks so much for using Brew Timer!

Introducing Grind Scales!
Go beyond "Coarse" or "Fine" and specify the exact setting on your coffee grinder.
We’ve included several pre-made grinds and the ability to add your own numeric grinds.
Try it out and take your brews to the next level!

A few small improvements snuck in too:
- See the total brew time before starting your brew.
- You can now make a copy of any brew, not just the pre-made ones. (Thanks Norman!)
- Fix: Updated the out-of-date Sightglass’ Chemex URL
