Default For you Mac users

I use ProMash for my brewing. What do you Mac users use?
Thank you in advance.

BeerAlchemy. They have a free 30-day trial.

I want to try BeerToolsPro, but they do not offer a trial.

Ditto on the Beer Alchemy. The best part is their recipe files all end in .bar. Ok, that's not the best part, the best part is that it helps me make good beer, I just think it's funny.

if you need something free try Qbrew, it's decent.

It is decent but BeerAlchemy is worth the $$ IMO. Also, BeerTools Pro is running a 10% of add in the Sept. BYO. http://www.beertools.com/byo

Using the trial version of Beer Alchemy (and I own Beer Tools). It is a great program. I would recommend it!

If you have an Intel Mac you can run any brewing software available.

Which do you prefer? Beer Tools or Beer Alchemy?
