Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good home brew programs for Mac? Especially freeware or demo versions so I can see what it's like before i buy?
Thanks

BeerSmith (http://www.beersmith.com/) has a sMac version as well as a 21 day free trial period. I use it on my computers (no sMac's here anymore ). It does everything I need.

I have BeerAlchemy on my mac and beer smith on my pc. I like beer smith better, but BeerAlchemy is still a great program and I would recommend it if you only have a mac.

BeerAlchemy has a free trial. I liked it well enough to buy it (and the iOS version). The units are wonky in places, notably mash thickness in gallons per pound -- WTF?, but the overall usefulness is there.

Agreed. I also wish I could have grains in pounds and ounces rather than pounds and fractions of pounds.

I have BeerSmith and have used BeerTools and BeerAlchemy. BeerSmith is the only one still installed though.
