I plan on buying it ASAP but in the meantime I am stuck using this (relatively) limited calculator. Any suggestions?
Is there a better free calculator out there?
You can try B-A at http://www.brewers-assistant.com
. It's a completely free web site, no-trials, no-limits, with a full featured recipe designer. Note that, at this time, for the late extract to be recognized you'd need to have your extract added more than 30 minutes after the hop. So for example in the picture below Whitbread Goldings would have higher utilization relative to the 3 extract additions below (since they are all more than 30 minutes from the hop addition), but the LME Amber would be included against hop util. for whitbread because it was added up to 30 minutes after the hop.
P.S. Note that we don't support browsers older than IE8, but for the best UI experience I wholeheartedly suggest Chrome or at the very least FF. (although IE9 will work as well, although a bit slower).
