About the Winemaking App

Winemaking is a replacement for the pen and paper journal used by many winemakers for keeping track of wine related activities per batch. Winemakers can bring the iPad with them into the winery and take notes, track data, and keep their winemaking activities in order.

Track your Batches

Use Winemaking to track each batch of wine you make. Add the batch name, initial batch information, yeast, sugar etc to fill out your batch info. Then you can select the batch you want to add journal entries for and start typing.

Keep journal entries for all your winemaking activities.

Use the journal entry system to keep a collection of journal entries for your wine batches. Each batch can contain any number of journal entries to capture your notes as the batch progresses.

Use a bluetooth keyboard to capture larger entries if you prefer to type on a tactile keyboard.

Collect Data for your batches

You can enter any number of data items for your journal entries. So for example you are journaling your initial fermentation. You may want to track sugar, temperature, acid, PH and other factors. Each day you add another journal entry, and for each of these daily entries you can enter as many data items as you want. Later, you can collect this data in a plot or by sending the data by pdf to yourself via email.

Plot your data collected in the journal data section.

You can run plots for the parameter you are interested in by selecting the batch you want, and then the plot parameter you want (from your data you have collected). Then assign a date range and the system will go out and collect the data you requested, and plot it in a PDF format you can mail to yourself via email.

You can make full-screen or reduced size plots.
