Latest note

I’ve spent a few days creating a web site for a new beer related database that I created last week. I still need to add a search facility but looking good so far.

The primarily function is a quick reference for ingredient profiles and recipes to aid with studies and recipe development but it could continue to grow and be useful for future brewery purposes.

I called it Leann, which is Gàidhlig for beer.

Just a wee geek X brewing student collaboration!
