Anyone know of any good iPhone apps geared toward brewing?
My dog smells like PineSol and he insists on sitting on my lap.

I use Brewzor Pro BETA and HomeBrew Calculator (ghost chili) and they are pretty good. Basic calculators, no recipe formulation or anything, but these are just the free ones. I used Homebrew Calc today for the boil timer. It has the ability to enter in your hop additions and will alarm when it's time to add. Nice feature. Brewzor does have some recipe formulation, but I haven't used it; i stick with Beersmith on the desktop.

+1 for BrewPal - hasn't failed me yet. It's great for those of use who just want to brew and not worry too much about al the nooks and crannies yet. Well worth the $0.99. I realy like the ability to export the brew sheet to my e-mail and print it

if you have a mac BeerAlchemy is really good to integrate with the iphone/touch. I do the recipe on the mac, sync to my touch, use the touch while brewing, and resync to the mac when done. Does all the calc's I need during the brew day.
You start with a full bag of luck and a empty bag of experience, your goal is to fill the bag of experience before you empty your bag of luck

Brew Pal is awesome if you are just using your iPhone. For .99, I don't think you can beat it. You can juggle a bunch of recipes at once- it's just solid.

Also a fan of Brew Pal

Although if I had a mac I would probably use Beer Alchemy just for the integration/syncing aspect, as I tend to develop recipes on my PC using BeerSmith, and would LOVE to be able to just sync them to my phone.
