Android Homebrew Recipe Viewer

Android Recipe Viewer now on Android Market, and has been updated to include a native QR scanner and to parse BeerXML recipe files.
Impressed with The Gold Goose and Green Bullet Pale Ale, the unnamed brew with yeast slurry is drinkable but hopefully if will get better.

Over Christmas I watched a lot of Dave Gorman, which inspired a graph of homebrew costs since starting in September 2008 to the end of 2011. The bottom line plots the cost of a pint @ 40p (below this line must be bad by definition), the middle line is the cost of a pint @ £1.50, ideally I'd be below this line.
The navy top line shows the cost of beer

The next graph shows the pints brewed vs pints drunk, showing the 2nd, 4th didn't cut it, and the 8th brew survive long enough to drink... happily the last brews have been consistent.
