Default Best, free brewing software?

I have the trial version of beer tools pro right now, but it doesn't account for hop utilization when doing partial boils. I didn't notice that until I had already started my boil last night. Is there a free software that you guys l ow of that can help me?

If you have a droid, the BrewR app is pretty good.

Does it account for hop utilization when doing partial boils, and late extract additions?

Thanks for the help guys.

I have an iPhone, and I've seen a few apps in the app store, but most of them aren't free.

Yes beer calculus is slow, and it only allows you to set your late additions at 5 mins left in the boil. I usually add mine at 15 mins.
