Default Beer Smith

I love beer smith. It's good in all ways that a brew software can be good.

Yeah, I use and like it too. Haven't figured out how to output recipes into a cool html format yet like promash does. Any thoughts?

You can enter new styles but I think you have to do it one by one.

It looks like a new version is in beta testing and Denny brought up the Brewers Association guidelines which might be added to it.

You can export into HTML just select the recipe then go to File-Export as. Select "Selected Files only" and select "Web or Custom Format" and put it into the file you want it to save it. It gives me a file that opens up in firefox.

I suppose I could get off my lazy butt and check, but has there been a poll here on who uses what brewing software?

I am thinking of getting some and am interested in what people think are the pros and cons of Brewsmith vs. Promash.

I say try them both out. They both have a free trial period. A cool thing I like in AG brewing is that beersmith has the milwaukee water profile built into it and I checked it against the last water report and it was right on.

If you batch sparge, Beersmith is your best option. Promash is a real pain to calculate batch sparges. Beersmith does it effortlessly.

Beersmith is modern and it's calculations are right on IMHO.

Promash the software is very "old" feeling and too modular for my tastes. Never tried brewing based on it's calculations.

It looks like a new version is in beta testing right now. Is anyone here a tester? Also the rumor is that the new version is going to have late addition formula for extract brewers. It going to account for the IBU change for the lower gravity.
