Here is a tool to turn that "propietary format" ProMash recipe into a BeerXML file that can be read by Beersmith, BeerToolsPro, Strangebrew, or most other recent packages.

The Beersmith program...Pros, cons? Worth getting? I downloaded the free 20 day trial, and it seems like it would be great. But I wondered what your thoughts were.

Thanks

Well, I use Beersmith all the time, and I love it. It really is a good program. There are a few limitations (I'd like to open multiple windows for example, to compare ingredients) but overall I think it's great.

You'll find that a large number of members here who have brewing software have chosen BeerSmith. I tried out BTP and ProMash and while they were both good programs as well, I like the interface of BeerSmith better - it seemed to make it a bit easier to use.

I really like beersmith. It has made recipe formulation much easier and completely taken the work out of water volume/temps, efficiency, etc. I haven't found anything I wish it did that it doesn't already do. Worth every cent IMO.

If you just want to have a view of one recipe open while you work on or look at another, you can already do that. Click on the recipe you want in another window, and click View->Preview item in New Window (at the bottom). That button is also on the toolbar, 4th item from the left. Is that what you were looking for?

I bought Beersmith about 2months ago. I also tried the free version first, and found it helped quite a bit. Now, I can't believe I waited 3 yrs. before getting it. It really makes recipe formulation soooo much easier.
PS.. Thanks Lil Spraky for the tutorial. Never even thought of trying something like that before.
