Important: Authorize the key for “read batches” and “read recipes”. You will need to regenerate your API key if you don’t do this.

This is an extremely early feature. I’m sure there’s lots it could be doing better, but I could use feedback from more savvy Brewfather users. Let your imagination run wild and report any issues and ideas here!
Known issues & coming soon
I’ll keep this section updated with known issues.
Sync is not automatic (you have to press the ‘Sync’ button)
Updates to recipes do not update the Taplist.io Beverage
Images in Brewfather are not synchronized
No “Recipes” import integration outside of batches (coming soon)
Any chance of having an option to use the Batch Name vs the Recipe name? I typically name my recipes either something super basic or based on the original clone name, and would like to show the Batch name instead of the original recipe name, or just the ability to edit a kegs name once it’s loaded.
Is there a way to integrate the batches informations to the keg it generates (ABV, gravity, etc.)?
So when I send a keg to conditionning in Brewfather and it appears in the On Deck page, it already has this info from the batch, which might differ a little from the recipe depending on how things went with the brewing.
All beverage data is sync’d from the recipe. So when creating a batch, we create or update (as appropriate) the underlying Taplist.io Beverage, corresponding to its Brewfather recipe. Net-net, we’re not storing any batch-specific information outside of the beverage.
A couple options I see, I would love your feedback:
We could add an option so that each batch creates its own Beverage.
Variations between batches would be stored in full fidelity, as beverages (eg “Zombie Dust Clone, Batch 2 - June 2021” vs “Zombie Dust Clone, Batch 3 - July 2021”)
On the other hand, this could get a bit cluttered.
We could allow kegs to override certain fields of their Beverages.
There’s already an example of this - description, which (when set) takes precedence over the beverage’s description; we would add ABV, etc.
I’m definitely looking forward to this enhancement – I’m waiting to enable my Brewfather integration until this is ready! My plan is to leave “Import all recipes” unchecked and then just import Planned/Brewing/Fermenting batches.
