If it says it's an old format and you can't save changes, you just have to save a copy and you can edit that. I ultimately had no problem with the free version. The supporter version is also problem free and I'm running it in the Excel app on my phone. I just still have to make copies for separate recipes because the Android version of Excel doesn't run macros.
Having the same issue. Finally got excel on my PC, down loaded free copy of Brunwater but excel won't let me edit the spreadsheet. If I click "edit anyway" the sheet goes blank.
All I want for Christmas is a web based brun water app+1
Downloaded it once, tried to open it in Excel app, won't run, decided maybe brewing gods are smiling on my never having used software. But I'd give it a try!

Here are the steps I have to complete to edit a new Brunwater version.
1. Change the file extension to .xls
2. Open the spreadsheet: the file opens in “Protected View”.
3. Place cursor in the formula bar and click. Excel will tell you “Protected View is preventing you from editing. If you trust the source of this file, click Enable Editing.” I click that once and it never asks again (until Martin releases a new version.)
The “formula bar” is the space above the cells where you can see and edit the currently selected cell contents.
