Thanks to everyone who brought and served their beers down in SD last week. Club night was a blast, and the hospitality suite was always serving good beer.

Mic, we can talk about it in SD. It's still illegal, but we might have an angle. We're working with Gary and the AHA on it, but it's slow going.
Anyway, I'll introduce myself at your "pragmatic" discussion.........
I'm looking forward to meeting you. Don't expect too much at the talk...we won't be re-inventing the wheel!
None of mine this year, but I'll be sure to stop by and try yours, Mic!
While brewing today, i decided I needed a new burner. The one I have was doing alright with the 7.5 gal aluminum pot, but is really struggling with the new 15.5 gal SS kettle.
I am thinking of either http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing/brewing-equipment/burners/blichmann-floor-burner.html or
Right now I am leaning toward the Blichmann because it can be converted to natural gas if I so desire.
Any one with any experience with either of these? Pros? Cons?
The new version, 2.0, is in the final stages of Beta Test, scheduled for release mid-June
+1The biggest benefit to me is when tweaking recipes. When tweaking, I'm constantly adjusting malt/hop/etc. amounts and varieties and can instantly see how a particular change affects the OG, IBU, SRM, etc. No way would I try to calculate those values by hand for every permutation.I tend to tweak a lot when I'm putting my recipes together too.
Plenty of other benefits, but I consider that the biggest from my perspective.
1. MAC users now have a choice, Of course runs on a wide variety of Windows platforms.
2. Tabbed and Windowed Browsing
One of the biggest features brewers wanted was a way to work on more than one recipe or tool at a time. After all, you can open a bunch of web pages in your web browser – why not your brewing software? So I added tabbed and windowed browsing to BeerSmith 2.0. You can open any recipe, tool or item in a tab or in a separate window and work on it the way you want. Want to work on three recipes at a time? No problem – they will open in three different tabs. Have multiple monitors? You can open as many windows as you like and spread them across all your screens.
3. Built for expansion. Want to take notes? now they are unlimited
4. Easy addon's - additional grains etc.
