Default iBrewMaster anyone?

Just wondering if anyone has or is using the ibrewmaster app. Looks pretty cool, guessing it's worth a shot for 4.99....

http://www.ibrewmaster.com/iBrewMaster/Welcome.html

Any opinions?

Thanks, David

I have it and its good for the $$. The guy who created it is constintly updating it. I think beersmith is better but its also more expensive. I use it just when im bored in class and want to create a recipe or tweek one.

Ok, looks like I'll give it a shot. Too complex and I won't use it anyway..

I love that app! It's my most used app by far.

Is this better than brewpal?

I love this app! I use it extensively for notes, scheduling, recipe formulation, etc.

The only thing it is missing is a mash/sparge function. For that I use Brewpal (.99c) to calculate temps and volumes.

Those two apps are all I currently use for brewing and they work great!

Looks interesting. I have Beersmith and it is great but I have a Mac and have to use Fusion with Windows to run BS which I dislike. Does this app automatically adjust percentages and such when you change/tweak thingsnlike BS does? Montanaandy

I don't have BS, so I can't compare, but it is very easy to tweak recipes, to scale them for larger/smaller batches, keep track of when various batches have been brewed, etc. I really love this app, it is super easy to use and very helpful. Also, if you run a mac, I've heard that Beer Alchemy is a good program. I also have a mac, but don't find it necessary to use BA because of iBrewmaster. For what its worth I hope it helps.
