Am I missing something here or did they buy up Hopville and then remove the features that made it successful?
Unfortunately, that appears to be the case. Brewtoad is not an awful tool by any stretch but there's enough missing that I bit the bullet and spent an hour figuring out how to map my weird BIAB setup onto Beersmith... time well spent, probably. I wish Brewtoad all the best, though, because the UI is slick as hell! Maybe I'll be back when the gravity estimates mesh with reality, and when changing batch size on my phone doesn't destroy the recipe.
