The Brew Journal is a home brew journal created by home brewers to home brewers.

We believe the Brew Journal is an innovative yet traditional way of logging craft beer recipes. This home brew journal has been created especially for home brewers who like to keep track of their batches, and log the outcome of every brewing experiment. Besides the antique look, everything in this journal has a function; from reference charts to tasting notes.

    Let me first start off with the customer service I received before purchase. I emailed over a few questions regarding shipping and some features and I had answers back so quick I had to duck!

    But since I have received the Brew Journal it has been an integral object of elegant simplicity.

    To begin, the layout is fantastic. You start the journal with all of the information we hunt for on our brew days with regards to temp, conversions and OG/FG. No more pulling out our phones every 5 minutes because we forgot how to convert from grams to ounces or if this specific color is too dark for our Irish Red.

    No more sloppy Google searches either trying to remember what type of hops impart an earthy element or the characteristics of a particular strain of yeast too! Talk about a time saver! We enjoy just sitting there and dreaming up different combos of yeast/hop combinations. What would some Sorachi Ace in my Cream Ale provide? How about the difference between WLP029 and S-04? Well within the first 10 pages of this journal you will have your answers and more.
    Now for the heart of the journal.

    I am a man of the moment. I like to brew lots, keg lots, give lots of bottles away and truly enjoy the whole process. What I do not like is remembering the fine nuances of each brew. I tend to remember the broad strokes instead of the fine details. So I often forget the specific hop notes of a past brew or if I perceived some off flavors from my fermentation temperature. This journal fixes that. Now after I have input all of my brew day measurements and processes we can sit down and journal the results of that (oftentimes blurry) brew day.

    It’s been incredibly helpful to help improve and objectively judge my beers. If something in wonky it is much easier looking at the days brew pages to help dial in the process vs trying to recall from last weekend. By using this and keeping a solid log of the days processes we have since medaled in a local competition and had a few Honorable Mentions. This Brew Journal has been instrumental in helping us dial in and improve our brew.

    The feel and construction fits right in with the keezer and tall glass of brew. Leather bound inside and out, a classy tab to keep it closed and a bookmark built in to keep my days straight. Solid while still light weight. A beautiful addition to our brew day which has helped us establish patterns and deficiencies. Plus couple that with the plethora of information included and this thing is a steal.

    We have all spend hard earned money on brewing trinkets to only shelve them after a day. This Brew Journal is the real deal. Solid, insightful and a true value to my favorite pastime. I plan on buying another for my brother-in-law who is getting in to the hobby. My only complaint is I wish I had one sooner, would have narrowed down a lot of variables when I was a noob :)

    I have to say, that Kegs & Code Co. provided excellent service when I purchased the Brew Journal!
    When I placed my order, I noticed there was a section where I could provide additional comments or requests for the order. Feeling a little spunky, I decided to write “Please include a drawing of Pac-man that is actually in the shape of a hop, eating the ghosts that are actually in the shape of a beer related item.” Upon arrival of my order, I opened the box and the first object that I notice is an excellent, detailed drawing of what I asked for; Hop-head Pac-man was in a complete maze with beer pint shaped power pellets and keg-ghosts. Naturally, I found this amazing and have attached the drawing to the interior of the Brew Journal as a reminder to continue ordering from Kegs & Code Co.! (I really wish I could upload a picture of the drawing, but there is no attachment option!)
    As for the Brew Journal itself, I am highly satisfied with the quality of product that was made. I personally have only performed several homebrew batches, but in doing so I quickly realized that I was going to have to start keeping a record of previous batches to learn from my mistakes, or to record results that I would like to repeat in the future. After browsing around for some time, I stumbled upon Kegs & Code Co. Brew Journal and quickly appreciated the thought and time they put into designing such an important tool for homebrewers!
    The high level details provided on the opening pages provides just enough information to quickly reference when needed. The most important part though is the layout design for each batch of homebrew. The predesigned sections for each detail that goes into every step (hops used, boiling times, fermentation notes, etc.) is an extremely efficient design that will provide an easy reference whenever needed. The book binding is great quality and lays flat, allowing you to easily view the pages when your hands are full. I’m looking forward to all my future batches of homebrew and getting to watch the journal become populated!
    Overall, I strongly recommend purchasing this well thought out journal if you are new (or experienced) with homebrewing beer. A craftsman (or brewer) is only as good as his tools, and this journal provides an excellent tool!

    My mother and I purchased the Brew Journal for my dad for his birthday recently, as he is an avid home brewer. Kegs & Code Co. are the kind of people that you want to order from again and again. I was extremely impressed by their customer service — I mentioned in the order comments that it was a birthday gift and they included a kind note beyond expectations. They also processed and shipped the order extremely quickly. Being both efficient and personable at once is not easy to achieve!

    With regards to the Journal, my dad absolutely loves it and used it when he brewed this weekend. He had been keeping his brew notes on scraps of paper that he then had to round up whenever he wanted to refer back to them, so the Brew Journal streamlined his process incredibly. It was definitely made by the brewer for the brewer; its layout is functional and turns the brew process into an experience where organization is a given rather than a concern. As a spectator in the process, I can say with enthusiasm that it is also very stylish!

    I definitely recommend both the Brew Journal as a product and Kegs & Code Co. as a company, and look forward to following their products and ordering from them again in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful tool for home brewers and a wonderful ordering experience!

    As I’ve gotten more serious about homebrewing I’ve learned many details that are really important to write down not just for the recipe, but for the process as well. There are certainly a few ways to track this information, but I knew once I saw the Brew Journal that I would want it to be my first one! It’s classic look and feel makes it great for any home brewer. It helps you to remember what’s important to track when it comes to the beers you make so you can recreate that award winning brew you made, make some tweaks if needed, or just remember that it was a failed experiment. Lucas was great to work with when ordering and being a homebrewer himself, he really made this product with the home brewer in mind. Just like home brewers like to make beer they want to drink, he made a journal that he would want to use himself. Oh and did I mention the incredibly useful charts in the front?! It’s got it all! Cheers!

    Product was a gift and recipient loved it (fellow brewer)! The journal arrived timely and well packaged. Had an issue with my local USPS regarding shipping and “additional postage necessary,” so I contacted Kegs & Code directly to resolve. Lucas A. on staff was more than accommodating; this company has great customer support! Highly recommend.
