Default Which Brewing software do you use???

Didn't really know where to put this thread...I guess this makes the most sense.

I really need to get some brewing software. Just thought I would ask everyone their opinion. What do you use and why? Beersmith, Promash, Others?

I use promash personally.

Check out the Brewing Software forum though, lots of info has been covered already.

I would suggest the BREWING SOFTWARE forum is a good place.

We have a whole forum for software. It's near the bottom, so it's easy to miss.

I use Beer Tools Pro

I use Beersmith. It's pretty up-to-date and easy to configure.

I thought someone said that one of these softwares easily does conversions back and forth between extract and AG, whereas others require the user to play with the numbers to get the conversion to come out "equivalent". Can someone clarify which softwared does the conversions. Also, do they all convert or I guess properly calculate for partial boils and/or late DME/LME additions?
