What's the catch?

There is no catch. BrewBlogger something I built because I wanted an easy way to record my beer brewing activities. There was nothing web-based out there, so I made one myself.

That said, should you decide to use BrewBlogger, all I request is that you link back to this site.

What do I need to set up BrewBlogger 2.3.2

You will need to have a website server with at least PHP 5 and MySQL 4 installed - most web hosting companies do feature PHP and MySQL. BrewBlogger's included instructions will assume that these open source programs are already installed.

From there, installation is easy. Simply add a few lines of configuration code, upload the BrewBlogger 2.3.2 files to your web server, and install the backend database. Complete instructions are included with the download.

Do I need programming experience to use BrewBlogger 2.3.2?

No. Entry is as simple as using any commercially available blog programs or Microsoft Word. Through a great piece of open source software called TinyMCE, text entry is a snap.
