I can’t help with printing (which would be nice). But I have put my
code on gitorious:


It currently does metric/english conversion, and a few other
tricks. Basically I just use calc’s units code. I think scaling
recipes, or turning percentages into weights would be pretty easy.

There is also, for those interested:


for brewing beer. This is again, mostly just calc functions, including
hydrometer correction, abv calculation, priming sugar for a given CO_2
volume, etc. More integration with org-mode should be possible: for
instance it would be nice to be able to use a lookup table (of
ingredients) to calculate target original gravity, IBUs, etc.

Any thoughts or pull requests on either are appreciated!

(Please do continue to CC me, as I read the list via gmane and may
miss messages.)

best, Erik
