I'm new as well. Just got a Mac due to the hard drive crashing on my PC.

When buying I talked with the sales person about my brewing addiction. He suggested installing a program called parallels. It allows you to run part of the system in microsoft and the rest in apple. If you ask for more of an explanation I'll not be able to explain.

I now have a Mac with Beersmith running just fine. I think the program was 60-70$.

Happy Brewing,
John

Resurrecting an old thread... I'd heard that there was a Mac version of Beersmith in the works. Actually, over on the Beertools forum, Brad said he had a preliminary version running on his Mac, but a full release was still a ways off - but this was last May. Anyone know of any update?

I think a Mac version has been "in the works" for years. Not holding my breath and went with BeerTools Pro

You can run it on virtual box. I have fusion and virtualbox, and vb takes less disk space ad memory to run.

The other option is to use Virtual Box. It's a free product and is suppose to work pretty well.

I use Fusion, but I got it for $20 a few years back. I've been too cheap to upgrade to version 3.
