I've yet to try any brew software and was wondering if any software broke my recipes down into groups for me? for example:

Pale ales: all the pale ale recipes come up

Recipes I want to brew: Ones on the to-brew list appear.

Recipes using "roasted barley": all the recipes with roasted barley appear

Recipes from Homebrewtalk: all recipes tagged as such appear...


Etc...

I'm not sure if this is what you want, but Beersmith 2 has folders.
You can create your own folders with whatever names you want and drop whatever recipes you want in them.
Or if you don't drop them in folders, then you can sort all of your recipes by style.

Can the folders hold shortcuts instead of multiple copies of the same recipe that fall into multiple categories?

In Beersmith (I have 1.4), I can "sort" by categories of my recipes, as well as have folders. I often sort by English pale ales, for example.

In Beer Alchemy, the folders are on the right side. Every recipe is in the "library" and the folders are below that. When you click on a folder, you only see the recipes in that folder.

No. Not on Beersmith 2, but it is easy to copy a recipe if you want it in different places.
