Default Which Brewing Software do you like best?

I am going to purchase some brewing software for AG and I plan on batch sparging.

I went through the "Product Reviews" thread and didn't find enough reviews to point me towards any particular software.

I am requesting some feedback on what software you use and why you like it the best.

Thank you.

I've used the trial versions of both ProMash and Beersmith. I like ProMash's interface more, but it hasn't been updated in several years. Beersmith is more updated and is a few bucks cheaper. Try both and see which you like. There are others, but I haven't used them.

Promash is what I use, but mainly that's because that is what I found first. I like it, though it could use some improvements.

I did the trial of Beersmith and Promash before my first AG brew, and afterward I purchased Beersmith because I really like how it was laid out. It's quick to access, easy to use and has all the tools and conversions I guy/girl could want. It's one of the best software purchases I've made.

+1 on BeerSmith. I had been using ProMash, but I downloaded the trial of BeerSmith and ended up buying it. It seems to be done quite well.

Beersmith user here. I tried Promash, but I didn't like it as much.
