It looks pretty similar to beertoolspro.

wyazz, suggest a "no sparge" mash profile, with adjustments possible for grain absorption worked into it!

Yes, I'd also like to see a no-sparge profile - though I've read different descriptions of no-sparge. When I think of no-sparge, its along the lines of mashing-in with a 'regular' water/grist ratio, draining first high gravity runnings only and adding water in the kettle to reach the target pre-boil volume. I understand that others describe no-sparge as adding all of the sparge water to the mash (much higher water/grist ratio, like BIAB). Maybe a BIAB profile & a no-sparge profile in a future release?

Wyazz, I was speaking for a full volume "no sparge" profile:

"As described by John Palmer in his BYO article “Skip the Sparge” (May-June 2003), a no sparge brew has the entire volume of “sparge” water added to the mash and stirred in before any runoff has taken place. Even though additional water has been added, since it’s been added to the mash before runoff has begun, we can more properly think of it as a mash infusion, rather than a sparge addition...hence the name “no-sparge”. "

I think it takes hints from BeerTools Pro for user interface but also hints from ProMash on the multi-taskability.

I am just curious to see what has changed, improved, or refined for accuracy.

Wyazz, I thought of one other thing; in the equipment listing, the boil-off should be a constant instead of an percentage staying the same regardless of batch size!

I haven't seen anything yet that would necessitate spending money for this upgrade. Yeah 1.4 has some quirks but nothing that can't be worked around. Tell me something that 2.0 will do that you can't do with 1.4. Tabbed browsing is cool but for $20.00 I will just use the back arrow.

Yes. Should be a volume per hour instead of percentage per hour. And, if anyone is smart enough to integrate a RH with Surface area algorithm based on equipment profile and with selections for wind (fan) and no wind for estimated boil off that would be swell.

Looking forward to the tabbed and windowed browsing. Now I don't have to close the recipe and re-open it when I'm converting my readings from the refractometer. Seems like a lot of new features, should be great!
