I've been using the trial version of Beer Smith, and think it's great. Is there any way that the full version can be downloaded for free?

Are there any other equally good (or better) programs that can be downloaded for free?

Nope, the licensed version is on sale right now for $23.99.

Check out http://beertools.com/ for their online version. They have a free one.

Hopville.com is good, not as in-depth as BeerSmith, but fairly good.

I use Brewtarget for free. But my next batch I think will try to trial version of Beersmith and give it a go. I would just buy it for $24 also not worth messing around.

yeah, definitely do NOT go to google and search for like a beersmith rapidshare or something like that. That's totally not cool.

If you like beersmith, pay the coder for it. If you don't want to pay, use the free software (I rather like brewtarget, but I am admittedly biased) or use one of the several online packages.
