What's your homebrew software of choice?
« on: March 15, 2016, 05:27:05 PM »
I remember a discussion about this a while back, but can't seem to track it down in here.  I have used proMash in the past but several of 'ya liked something else better? 
TIA

Beersmith is all I've ever used.  Love that I can work on a recipe on my computer, then sync it to my ipad on brew day.

been using beersmith for a couple years. i'm not the biggest fan, but that's probably equally due to how we use it and the setup.

i'd probably opt for something simpler if it was solely up to me

Thanks.  out of the 15+ in have seen I will look into those 3.  Part of me would like software that is just plug and brew but the other part of me would like to see the calculations, as I used to do with paper & pen.

That is a lot of stuff.  I just leafed through the software pole thread and it was started in 07 and goes through 2012, but pretty interesting back story.

I use beersmith. I used to use tastybrew.com when I was starting out, because it was free and because it was more basic. But beersmith meets my needs much better now.
