Hey,

I need to buy beer software. I guess my preference is compatibility with other users.

Which do you use and recommend?

I use BeerSmith. Does everything I need it to do and probably more. Plus he's a regular here so if you have any issues you can address them with him.

A search of this forum will show that while many softwares are popular, on Windows most use Beersmith.

Another fan of BeerSmith here -- once you get it dialed in it's VERY effective. I found it really added to my consistency from batch to batch.

Brewpal for the iPhone.

I'll probably put beersmith on my laptop once I get my brewing area finished...

Beersmith is most popular, then promash, then a bunch of others in 3rd including Beer Alchemy and Beer Tools Pro (my fav of the bunch).

Another Beersmith user right here. I used BrewPal twice on the iPhone, and I use it from time to time when I'm away from home to plug in ingredients and play around, but I use Beersmith when actually planning out and on brewday.
