I did a search and could not find this posted anywhere, but thought some of you may be interested:

- BeerSmith 2.1 was released yesterday (new brew-day timer, cloud folder)
- We also launched our new recipe sharing site: http://BeerSmithRecipes.com

You can learn more here:

As a new brewer................... let me play the devil's advocate!

I'm not into experimenting yet. I do not try to invent recipes. I use the winner recipes that are well received here on HBT.

The main benefits I see with Beersmith is the Inventory, Equipment, Calendar & Brewsheet feature. Keeping everything in 1 place is also very handy.

But, I'm reluctant to just spend more $$$$ without any tangible payoff. I can do all those things myself with just pen & paper. I'm not trying to discount your hard work...................... but I need something more. HBT has overwhelmed me & just keeps on giving. And it's free.

As a new brewer what am I missing?

I expect that when I decide to make the switch to AG it will be even more useful.

With all of that in mind, I purchased a copy. Besides - look at it this way. Here's a program that someone clearly put a lot of time in, keeps updated with a lot of information, and can make your life a lot easier. It's been written for a specialty market not really a program you're going to mass-produce and get rich off of. Isn't it worth throwing the author a couple of bones for his time and effort?

I guess I'll just keep trolling & viewing the tutorial videos. Unless????

Reason: Clue me in!

Best $20 you will ever spend. If you are worried about "not spending money" it might not be the best hobby

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,

I figured that out. I love DIY & spent a few $$$$ already, but I fell victim to a LHBS that did not have my best interest at heart. When I showed him the line cleaner I built for 1/4th the cost of the one he sells, we BOTH learned a thing or two. I learned how to do that on HBT for free.

Before I spend anymore I just need proof. $20 is nothing.............. but I would like examples.......... back it up.

Show me.

Reason: P.S. Nice necklace ;-)

Why don't you download the 21 day free trial and convince yourself?

$20+ is cheap. I'm an extract brewer wanting to move to AllGrain. Tried the demo out and was amazed. The "brew steps" gave me the confidence to make the move (all the valves and such should be here monday). Get the demo, download the recipe packs and play around. If someone can't find $20 in value ... I don't know what to say. I'd easily pay double the price for it.

Only two things that I've seen need a bit of work ..
1. Mobile ap for my 10" android xoom
**I wouldnt mind paying a seperate cost for the mobile ap as long as it could use the same cloud account as my pc. May want to take a poll with your users explaining if we were willing to pay for the mobile ap we would get it sooner.
2. Better options for a beer diary on a recipe

Awesome stuff and much appreciated!

The timer function is nice. The recipe function is nice. The cloud function is nice.

In all honesty, I can't believe you're only charging $20. I better buy this **** before it goes up.
