I ended up trying 1.4 in wine the other day. I can live without the print function and the rest of it worked great when I added a few recipes and even a hops that wasn't listed. I ended up pre-ording 2.0. I'm excited for it to come out.

Although I would love to see a fully functional linux version  ;)  ;)

I pre-ordered Beersmith 2 yesterday. Looking forward to a renewed version. I have faith in Brad and the crew.  ;)

Beersmith has helped me through many a brewday and hopefully many more to come. Thanks!

Only 1 day to go!

I was wondering if he was going to have the capacity for a release like this. Looks like not  >:( Oh well, I'm in the middle of a double brewday so I can wait.

Me too.   Kind of like what we were told would happen on Jan 1 2000.   I watched the clock on the site count down.  It hung up at 1 second, tried to refresh the page and then nothing.

I got my registration number last night for the update.  I know it will still require a working website, but with that number do you just update it through your existing software or is it an update download that installs over what you have?
I've consumed all of my home brew and still can't relax!  Now what!

It's a whole new program. I just finished downloading and it installs to a new location, warning oyu not to install in the same folder as version 1.4. Looking forward to playing with it once batch #2 is chilling.

The text of the topic is shown below:

All,
 We launched BeerSmith 2 today which is a major milestone! - the quickest way to download it is from our temporary download server here:

 http://www.beersmith1.com

 During the launch I did experience a web outage for about 2-1/2 hours primarily due to excessive traffic.  I did try to prevent this by setting up the alternate server on my web host but (due to bad luck) the alternate server decided to have hardware problems over the last 24 hours, ruining my carefully laid plans.

 For the moment things are back up and running - I do apologize for the outage.

I downloaded v.2, and played with it for awhile. It appears to be a great program. I started with ProMash many years ago, but tried the trial of Beersmith and found it had features that Promash did not. However, the inverse was true, also. I feel that I will find the same thing with v.2.
Each program has it's strong points, and I would be happy with any of them if they were the only program I had. However, like all programs, they can only work within the limits set by the creator. They are only tools, and no one tool is meant for all jobs. I find the creative juices flow best with a pencil and paper, and the documents I have collected over the years and keep in a 3 ring binder. I then finalize my recipe using one of the programs.
But, that's only me.
Beersmith v.2 will be a great tool, and I am glad I have it.
