Default BeerSmith vs. ProMash

I don't know why fate brang me to this, but I happen to stumble apon BeerSmith before ProMash. I bought BeerSmith for only $19.95 and it has more than everything I need.

I'm wondering... why does a majority of people choose to use ProMash? Am I missing the boat here?

I'm with you, but we're definately in the minority.

They both seem to do the job pretty well...I liked the user interface for Promash better.

I like Beersmiths interface way more than Promash, but promash is easy enough to learn. I had problems with sparge settings on my beersmith trial. Never did get that right.

That being said if you look you can get promash for 20 bucks shipped from a few vendors...

I know with ProMash you can. When you create a recipe you specify all-grain, partial mash, or extract.

I'm thinking about getting both for the h#ll of it. I like aspects of both. Maybe I'll make my brewing partner buy one, and I'll buy the other. . . .Hmmmm. . .

I have both BeerSmith and ProMash. I like ProMash the most but probably because I have used it the longest. I would agree that either will do the job.
