I use Beersmith, and really like it. They have a free trial, to try it out, and then it only costs about $20 to purchase.

Another vote for Beersmith. Very easy to learn/use.

+1 on Beersmith. Download the trial and play around with it. It's pretty easy to use.

Download all the trials and play with them. That's what I did.

I went with BeerSmith, FWIW.

I have Pro-Mash and it seems to work fine (no trial though). Honestly, I'd recommend BeerSmith because the guy who developed the software is active on HBT and quick to help out.
