Harvest and lack of sleep go hand in hand. Having a tool to calculate or double-check my math helps me sleep (a little) better.

The WineAdds iPhone app, a companion to the http://www.wineadds.com website, is a tool to assist professional and amateur winemakers in calculating common winemaking additions and treatments in any combination of metric or English units.
"Winemakers tend to have units with which they are most comfortable, and these aren't always the same units given in product usage guidelines," explains Henry. "Calculating these additions reliably and in their choice of units gives some peace-of-mind to winemakers."
Calculations provided by the WineAdds app include acid addition and reduction, SO2 addition and reduction, molecular SO2 calculation, copper addition, RS addition, Brix adjustment, yeast and nutrient additions, and Port fortification, along with a suite of unit conversions. The app also allows winemakers working remotely to email or text the calculation results to their staff.
This app comes as winemakers are preparing for harvest, their busiest time of year. "I know from experience that harvest and lack of sleep go hand in hand. Having a tool to calculate or double-check my math helps me sleep (a little) better," says Henry.
The WineAdds iPhone app is currently available in the iOS App Store for $4.99.
