Anyone know if there is a brewing software that's MAC compatible?

BeerAlchemy and Beer Tools Pro both run on OSX; you can get Beersmith to run if you install Parallels.

I used both Beer Alchemy and BTP; I prefer BTP.

Great thanks....

I'm trying both of them out. I can't quite decide which works better for me.

quick plug for brewblogger... you can run the software in the default web space on your mac. obviously a bit more involved with the need for a web server and mysql... very nice for anywhere access however

I really like Homebrew Formulator. I've been using it since I went all-grain about 2 years ago. It's a really nice balance of user friendly and what I'll call "tweaky." I've tried demos of Beer Tools Pro and Beer Smith; I'm sure they're great but I felt like Homebrew Formulator was a lot easier to use without being dumbed down.

I have beer alchemy and btp, and prefer beer alchemy. I like being able to see my target numbers and actual numbers side by side. Although it's inventory system is useless

I have tried to get Hombrew Formulator several times and the link from Version Tracker is missing for some reason. Is there another way to get it?
