There is a learning curve for all software programs, I expect it.
thats the same route that i did with beer smith and it works great. I am very happy with it. I am currently making my own recipes and it is a great way to track the costs and develop some good beer.

The boil off issue is one I'm working on for a future version.

If you want to see detailed statistics, the preview brewsheet option will give you step by step instructions on how to brew a given recipe.

Cheers,
Brad
Brad:

THANKS! That will make scaling batch sizes much easier.

I was completely happy with IBrewmaster. One day the program froze because of a glitch associated with a calendar function. I emailed support, got a quick reply that it wood soon be fixed (It was)
In the meantime, I got a little impatient, bought Beersmith, and dang....the rest is history. Never realized what I was missing. IBrewmaster is great, Beersmith even more so.

All brewing software is just a database of ingredients and a list of simple equations. All the information is freely available, so you can make your own BeerSmith with 3-4 hours and a spreadsheet. I did it in Google Docs, and I use it for all my beers. Feel free to copy and use!
