I'd love to try Beersmith but as a Mac user it seems I'm out of luck unless a Mac version comes out someday. (fingers crossed)

+1 though on buying BeerSmith.

Sure, I'll plug my site.

http://www.brewtility.com

It's free, it's new and it does recipe formulation. There are some other misc. tools, but ut doesn't do brew sessions yet. (On the list)

BrewBlogger is web based (needs a lamp server), lets your create recipes and copy into brewblog, has nice calculators, is free, and being web based lets you share with others. Feel free to use the one I use (below) to try it out if you'd like

I'm currently evaluating BeerSmith myself and I'll most likely buy it after just an hour or so of playing with it. I can't really imagine not wanting to buy this program. If I buy this, there will be no more hunting for recipes. I can just choose a style that I want to brew and then start slapping ingredients together until I come up with something that I'm looking for. I also really like the feature where I can add/update the pricing on the ingredients I buy. The recipe will then tell me how much it will cost to make it and give me a shopping list of what I need...

You might want to investigate VMware Fusion at some point.

I like Beersmith enough that I run it on Windows via Parallels. IMO it's markedly better than the OS X app (Beer Alchemy?).

I have tried them all. The best free brewing software hands down is StrangeBrew Java. Runs on pretty much anything, too:
