Title: Recipe software for MACs
Post by: maltymike61 on December 03, 2010, 10:07:38 PM
I'm trying to find a good recipe calculation software for Macintosh computers. Can anyone recommend a really good one?

I think I've at least tried them all. BeerTools Pro is by far my favorite.

BeerTools Pro. I've been using it for years on my Mac. Great app. They have a demo version. Check it out at beertools.com.

I use Beer Alchemy. I like it, and if you have an iPhone you can sync it.

I like BeerAlchemy.  Does exactly what I need it to do recipe and inventory-wise.  Exports and imports recipes from other programs via BeerXML.  Not a bad program with a "sister" program on the iPhone.  Integration between the two is nice.

The author is currently updating BeerSmith and the new version (soon) will run on Mac too.

While it has it's limitations I really like Homebrew Formulator. Mainly because out of all the software I have tried it is the least complicated and fastest software to design a recipe. I even use it for my nano brewery recipe formulations. A big plus: it's FREE! search "Homebrew Formulator" and give it a try before you pay for one.

I've been using BeerTools Pro for a long time. I like the online brew builder, which can save a recipe to be downloaded to your computer , as well as other online resources.   

I just downloaded Homebrew Formulator to give it a try and will definitely look at BeerSmith when Brad comes out with a Mac Version.

Brewmaster's Warehouse website has a Brew Builder http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/brew-builder (http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/brew-builder). There you can formulate a recipe and order the ingredients right on the site.

It has been working well for me.
