Name a brewing software that can do this...
 
other than Beer Alchemy

Beer Target will calculate what SHOULD be gravity, attenuation, and efficiency. But Beer Alchemy will let you enter the gravity and whatnot of what you actually brewed. Does any other software do that?

Beersmith does.

If I understand what you are asking correctly, I believe Beersmith does it as well.

My spreadsheet does it all. Plus, I can add to it, update it and whatnot without having to wait, to pay, or to alter code and recompile. It's as simple as adding a formula. Plus, it's free and open source. So others can use it and make it better and share their updates with the world! ;D

Beersmith and a spreadsheet. Thanks guys.

Maybe there's a nuance to the feature you're talking about but there are two ways to do this in Beer tools pro. You can correct the attributes as measured in the recipe file or you can use file names to differentiate. An example would be to save a barleywine recipe with a file name like Barleywine 2009 Recipe. After you brew it, you name it Brewed_Jan2009_Barleywine Recipe. In that instance of the file, you change all the parameters as measured and make your notes about the session. That way if you brew it again, you'll have another instance.

Promash does. In Promash you create recipe files and brew session files. In each brew session you choose a recipe file then enter info that pertains to that brew session, like your actual gravity and whatnot.

Never! I'd much rather give it out and let people have at it. And then let them all improve it and share it around. And maybe over time it will be useful. And free. And we can convince other brewers no to pay for something that can be free. The information is all out there. It just takes time and a lot of patience to put it all together.
