Absolutely -- brewing software is no less valuable to PM brewing than AG brewing.
As an added benefit, most packages (I use Beersmith) also allow you to take AG recipes and easily convert them to PM recipes. You can do this manually, as well, with a calculator or spreadsheet, but the software takes the work out of it. You can also use it to convert between different batch sizes effortlessly (say from 5 to 6 gallons, or 10 to 5 gallons). Finally, they are really fun for PM brewers (and AG) because you can take existing recipes and experiment and tweak them easily.
