I just used this software for the first time this weekend, and I must say that it is very good for free software. It was pretty easy to figure out and I hit all my numbers dead on what it estimated. So thank you for making this available.

I do however agree with Randar on pretty much all of his points, so hopefully when the next version comes around it will incorporate some of those improvements. But for now it does everything I need to do to make good beer. I'm sure it can only get better.

Randy,

Very good comments. They are noted and in the feature tracker to be changed. Also, I'm definitely game for using all your tools and shop equipment haha.

I don't have much web development experience, so if anyone is genuinely interested in the online ingredient database thing, please PM me. We have space on the sourceforge servers with scripting support and all the bells and whistles, so it would be just a matter of actually doing it.

Well, see this is why I am a SW Architect. Figure out all the stuff to do and then hand it off! :-P

I'll start a thread on the SF project forum.

IMO, it would be great if the interface to the online ingredient DB is exposed as web services and exchange the data via Beer XML format.

if I did an extract recipe and steeped specialty grains, should these be marked as mashed or not?

sorry for such a noob question. the import from Beersmith had them as not mashed and the numbers were crazy.
