Default brew software for linux

had beersmith for a while. didn't use it much since i've only been in this a few months but i figured i'd build up a database of recipes to work from. had my computer stolen a few weeks ago and made the leap to a linux (ubuntu) box. any recommendations on brewing software that is linux-friendly?

There might be others that I don't know of but I've used qbrew before. Googling turns up the URL of http://www.usermode.org/code.html

I still use BeerSmith on my Ubuntu installation. It runs great under Wine (ironic?).

Did you have any trouble getting BrewSheet/Printer functions to work under wine? I have Gecko running which I figured would fix that, but still no love for printing a brewsheet.

Alright, so BeerSmith doesn't run perfectly under Wine. Everything works except for the print function. When I need to print something, I export the recipe as HTML (under the file menu), then print it from my web browser. I still think BeerSmith is one of the best programs around, and it's even better with the recent update, so I can live with the minor annoyance.

Nice work around. Thanks. I agree, BeerSmith is nice and I didn't want to give it up by moving to Ubuntu.

I'm not sure if Ubuntu's package just doesn't make the distinction, but on Debian there is a package called wine-print that allows Wine applications to print using CUPS. It appears as if it doesn't work on AMD64 architecture machines.

I personally use qbrew and am looking to expand my programming skills by expanding it's functionality.
