Love that its free
OK, first off I am very impressed with the database selections and the software as a whole. I used BeerSmith, and Beer Tools Pro, Pro Mash, and I currently use BeerSmith 2 as my primary brewing software. HOWEVER, I am currently doing a review of free alternatives and I came across Brewtarget. I can honestly say that if I did not already have a license for all the software I have, I would EASILY make brewtarget my choice. According to my tests the recipe numbers came out very close to my beersmith recipe numbers, and I have beersmith dialed in. I took about 5 minutes to figure out Brewtarget and could get almost all my numbers right in line. I applaud you for putting the time in for an open source option and not only that, but doing an outstanding job. On my blog I am happily giving you a glowing review and will highly suggest it if someone does not have the beersmith license already. This is a top notch open source option. You have everything people are looking for (except inventory which I personally don't use). But you have included scaling, timers, conversion tools. The only gripe I have would be I would like to see a more concise mash options. But what you included is very workable. I give you a solid A on this software.
brewtarget is fast and easy to use
Splendid application I've done many brews with it and calculations up to now are extremely accurate. The only thing missing is an inventory but even without it is very helpful.
