Default Wine Making/Log Software?

I'm just wondering if there is any PC software out there to help keep recipes and/or notes organized. I know there are many for beer, but I'm looking for something related specifically to making wine. Thanks!

Check out: www.vinotrac.com
and it may have a free feature for x-amount of batches. Also check www.winemaker.nl, they have a free feature and a paid feature. Can also just use search engine and look for winemaking software, many seem to have trial periods, etc.

Vinotrac is free for 5 batches then $9 per MONTH to use... IMO, too expensive by far. The Winemaker site is full of non-links (FAQ page doesn't list any answers and questions are not links). Plus it lists windows 95 and newer. Seriously doubt it will run on anything (without issue) above XP. Too much changed in Windows after/for XP to expect software to work.

I use BeerSmith 2.x for my batches of mead and such, not just beer. While it doesn't list any grapes, by default, you could enter the info for them into the ingredients and then use them.

I would be interested in some software that does a better job at formulating batches of mead, but until something comes along, BeerSmith (IMO/IME) does a good enough job for me.

Were searching for a program like this myself a couple of days back when i stumble upon this thread. I didn't find any good/simple programs that fitted my needs so i made one my self! Its newly coded so probably isn't very bug free, if you find any problems or think of anything i missed please write something to me and i will see if it fits for the next update of the program.

heres a link to the file

It won't let me download the file unless I become a premium member.

You should be able to download it fine, i think your just pressing the wrong buttons. Althou i will upload a new patch anyday now and i still havent fixed a webpage yet so the updating will be a bit hard, But try pressing another link on the site and ill be uploading next version asap

Link doesn't work for me either. Just use dropbox public link or something.

Thank you for the program. It took a couple minutes but finally figured out I had to click on the filename up near the top. Looks like this should work fine for my needs! Thanks again.
