Free Beer Software
 
Was just reading brew your own magazine and they had a write up on open soucree Brewtarget. I use ProMash which has its bugs imo. Will give this one a shot and thought I would share, for free can't hurt: http://sourceforge.net/projects/brewtarget/

I've been using this...been working out for me so far. Just read it in my copy of BYO on the work today. The mash schedule has a few bugs, but for free, it's doing great!

What bugs did you both find using brewtarget?

The $20 or $25 it costs for Beersmith is well worth it.

I didn't dig it, honestly I think Brewmate (free) or Brewpal (.99) are just as good, same features etc.

+1 to Brew Mate

I had no bug issues with brewtarget as i've not used it yet. I've had a few bugs with promash such as remembering directories and crashing when closing. will check out the others. I would love to have a total gallons brewed feature from brew sessions.

Anyone using it on Mac? I downloaded the Mac version and it says that it doesn't work with the version on OS X. I'm 10.6.7 (Snow Leopard) which is the latest.

The developer is on here, he posts updates, the Mac install instructions are in this thread here. Also there is a software forum.

I have been using it for a couple months now. I have used it for my last 9 batches. Just used it for an American IPA yesterday.
