Recommended? YesBeerSmith is cool, but I am thinking of switching to something else. I haven't played with it quite enough to make that decision though.
Recommended? YesI love this software. It was one of the best equipment investments I have made.
Recommended? YesThis is such a great app for the novice to the expert HB'er I love the interface and the fact that updates are made frequently
Pros: Cost, features, simplicity of use. Custom equip profiles rock. Calendar/Brew Log view is awesome. Brewsheets are awesome.
Cons: Missing a few new hop varieties, I guess? Could be slightly more low-res friendly?
Recommended? YesI *LOVE* BeerSmith. Prior to buying it, I used the 1-month trial of ProMash, I tried out open-source SUDS, I tried BeerTools online, and I just didn't like any of them. So I downloaded the 30 day demo of BeerSmith, and was sold within 7 days. Plus, Brad is a HBT member!
GREAT method of sorting recipes, tracking dates on a calendar (Brew Log), easy import/export, and tons of ingredients pre-loaded. Adding new ingredients is super-easy via the updated lists available on the BeerSmith page, I just wish the newest hop varieties were on there.
All in all, I am useless without my copy of BeerSmith, it has done truly great things for my ability to create and refine recipes, as well as track and keep notes on the brews I've done. A+ software!!!
Recommended? YesLove it. The one thing I wish it had was an easier way to look at *all* my notes for all the brews. Kind of like an 'At a Glance' feature, more like notebook style.
