Default BeerSmith Software, Impressions?

I am getting back into home brewing after a few years away. I did mostly extract brews when I was doing it before and only did a few AGs.
Is this software something useful only to newbs or is it something I will use a lot?

Thanks,
Steve

make sure you check out the caluclators. They help me the most although the recipe functions are good too.

I'd guess you'd call me sort of an "intermediate" brewer. I love BeerSmith. I use it all the time for creating new recipes, checking out the analysis of recipes I find on the net, seeing how modifying an existing recipe changes things. An excellent piece of software!

It's a really good program. Lots of utilities for all kinds of brewers. Brewlogs, tools, inventory, scaling, etc. You won't be disappointed.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet (no Mac compatibility yet -- though apparently he's pretty close to a release for it). After hearing everybody's praise for it I'm definitely anxious to try it out though!

I love it and prefer the interface to other programs.

Can't you run it via Wine? I've done so in Linux just fine, and Wine is available for Mac too. I ask this all the time but it's like no one ever tries it. www.winehq.com

ODaniel, thanks man. I'm reading FAQs about Wine right now and will download it once I understand the install and everything. Awesome!
