Has several calculators that are in separate windows for convenience. You can even export your recipes to PDF or HTML.

I've been fiddling with the copy I downloaded today for a few hours. Pretty snazzy. This thing has got Promash beat hands down on the GUI. The printout is better than Promash, too. I wish I were a more experienced brewer or had brewed AG so I could really run BeerAlchemy through the paces.
