I have always used beertools lastnight I download the trial version of beersmith is there a big difference between the trial version and real thing? The grain ingredients is really lacking, and some of the text is very difficult to read, also in beertools while makeing a recipe I can duplicate ingredients but not in beersmith. Otherwise I really like the layout and versatility of beersmith and may be changing soon.

You can download more grain options from the beersmith site. In addition you can always add and customize ingredients

Within the grain, yeast, and hops 'databases' you can duplicate and/or alter any item.  You can also add styles the same way.

Other plus:
-Fred Loaded a lot of his recipees in it
-Brad Smith is active in his forum and will answer any question you send him
-It is very flexible

It is a steal for $25.

You should add to your list of plus's

On Brad's board BeerSmith.com

The new version is going well but it is not done.  I have about 90% of the tools complete, the basic databases and recipe entering and manipulation tools done.  I'm working on detailed statistics and mashing profiles next.  The largest blocks still left include the calendar, various file formats, and a lot of cleanup work such as keyboard shortcuts, options dialogs, cleaning up the look and feel, etc...not to mention all of the help documentation.  I also have all of the code running on Mac and PC as I'm developing in parallel.

I'm hoping to have something ready next Spring (sorry) but we will see.  If I can make a big push on the Christmas break I may at least have an alpha version for some of the early test team to cut their teeth on early next year.

It has been a long road and I know many are waiting for it.  I'm working to try to make it worth the wait.

Thanks,
Brad

The good news is that it sounds like Mac users will have an awesome piece of software early next year

That is good news.  I'll gladly give $25 for the Mac version.

I've gotten it to work under wine/cxoffice though I'm still unable to print, but I haven't spent a whole lot of time on it.

It is written on a platform that will allow easy porting to Linux and I expect Brad to give it serious consideration (he already has) but to get V2 out for PC and Mac first

I think I'm probably missing something here.

I've been using the free trial and I want to buy.  But when I click on the paypal link it doesn't seem to be adding Beersmith to my order.  I have a paypal account but when i click on it and log in it just shows zero with no option to add beersmith.

OK.  I misread.  I was thinking you meant it wasn't very useful to you.
