If you want to learn more about using the popular qBrew recipe calculator to design your next beer recipe using Mr. Beer ingredients click the link below. I've included the complete instructions for downloading, installing and using the free qBrew 4.1 version on your computer.

This post was researched and updated based on the prior work done by forum member 'D Rock' who I would like to thank for taking the time to share this information and providing the inspiration used to hopefully further his original work.
I would also like to thank other forum members like 'EricG' and 'esheppy' who have also provided much of the related information as well as helping to understand the inner workings of qBrew. I have also researched the qBrew topic on the Internet and have included the information provided many other contributors.

Thank you very much for this link! I noticed there was no setting for meads listed in the program, but still seems like a very handy tool regardless!

hi AugustDerleth, If you can forward me some mead information I'll add it to the database.

The styles require the high and low values for OG, FG, IBU and SRM....see the example style for 'American India Black Ale' below and use it as a guide.

<style oglow="1.056" oghigh="1.075" fglow="1.012" fghigh="1.018" ibulow="50" ibuhigh="70" srmlow="25" srmhigh="40">American India Black Ale</style>

I'm afraid that is the latest version, the author had stopped development in 2008, but you can use the link below to access the original website.

I already had it installed. I was wondering if there is any software actively in development for linux? I can run beersmith in wine but would prefer a native app
