Thanks to the input of users from this and other forums what started as a simple "throw it out there and see what happens" project has grown into a full featured brewing app. For those that don't know - Brewers-Assistant is a free (no trials, gimmicks, etc.) web-site for homebrewing with a rich and fluid user interface. It includes all the features you'd expect from a brewing software, plus some additional ones like email notifications or timers. All the features are free and will stay that way. In a few weeks we'll have a way of reporting comments/issues or suggestions for V2.0 (we'll be starting work on V2.0 soon, but I m personally taking a few weeks break from the site to get some R&R
) via the website but if you need to talk to us in the meanwhile you can use the support email. Screenshots below.
P.S. While the site will work with all modern browsers, for the best experience we advise against using IE8, as you will be missing out on some UI elements. If you're stuck on IE8 due to having XP I suggest upgrading to Chrome (I actually suggest this even if you have IE9, due to the fact that it's much better, faster browser. Not just for B-A site but in general. And, no, we are not in any way related to Google, just stating the fact).
