Default Best Brewing Software... For Mac?

Aside from Beer Tools, is there any other software for Mac? And what is best?

Thanks!

I made a custom spreadsheet with all the equations I've run into over the years. Grimmy's site is very helpful if you take this approach. Homebrew Beer Math

Are you finding any problems with BTP? I use it and like it a lot.

Beer Alchemy is pretty slick.

Just went over to the Beer Alchemy site, looks good - any complaints?

Has anyone used both Beer Alchemy and Beer Tools?

EDIT - just found the thread comparing the two. Thanks for the replies!

Not quite what you want to hear, but I think Beersmith via Parallels is the best option out there.

I have heard wonders about Beersmith... unfortunately setting up parallels just for beer software is a little beyond my (wallet's) reach.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

I am a huge fan of Beer Alchemy. Free trial, try it out.

I tried both, and just ended my 30 day trial. I have to say that I'm probably going to go with Beer Alchemy, but one thing I did like about BTP was that they had a forum which made me feel connected with other users. I haven't seen that for BA.

Also, try Brewtarget. Why not, it's free, and there's a Mac version (as long as you install the QT libraries first, also free)?! It's a very young project, but it's moving right along.
