Another happy BeerSmith user. I tried Promash demo for a time. Good program, but did not like the lay out and found it "clunky" as someone said.

BeerSmith is simple, easy to use and has the basic features I need in homebrewing. It's easy to create and keep track of recipes and I like the water profile feature. It is serviced and was updated recently.

I have not tried BTP.

digging the post from the dead.... I visited Beersmith's website and it appears they don't offer a Mac version. Any other Mac users find a suitable alternative?

I like the support that beersmith has given me. I tried one of the other three and was less than impressed. there are still some quirks I'm working out but If it doesnt have decent support then us people with less than perfect computers skills just get frustrated. Oh I always hit my #'s now that I understand the program. Thanks beersmith.
