Recommended? YesGreat software, wouldn't want to brew without it! It does everything I would ever need it to.
Pros: Really helps with the numbers side to brewing. Constantly being upgraded, so it stays current unlike other brewing software which seems stale.
Cons: Needs to be tweaked after the initial setup and a couple of brews. This is not really a negative but...
Recommended? YesLove this program and after I got my brewery clocked in with it have not used anything else. Out of all the brewing software I tried, I really liked this interface better. The fact that the writer is a member of the forum pretty much put the last nail in the coffin for me and I paid up. For close to $20 there is nothing I have seen comparable. I highly recommend you try it.
Pros: Easy to use Windows Explorer type interface
Recommended? YesI use this all the time now for keeping a log of what and when I brew.
Formulating new recipes and tweaking existing ones.
It's easy to load other peoples recipes and convert them to you type of brewing.
It generates a brewing schedule for brew day.
I tried all the other major software and stuck with this one.
And the author is a member of this forum.
Pros: Great Interface. Brewsheet rules!
Cons: It is not free. Ingredient updates would be nice.
Recommended? YesI have used this SW for about 4 months (about 4 beers), but I've designed several more than that - just have to make time to brew them all! The brewsheet feature makes it a snap to print out an easy guide for brewday. All temp calculations were perfect for AG brewing. The interface beats promash's quirky oldschool one, and the trial is fully-functional for 30 days. Stop reading this review and download it now!
Pros: Massive amount of ingredients
Cons: Older looking setup
Recommended? YesTryed Promash bought BeerSmith. Great water profiling including great examples. Has all the conversions factor built in. Good for keeping track of recipes and what you actualy brewed.
