Quart2000 - Great app, but needs just a tad more...
I love this app, and I use it a lot when I'm at work and have an idea for a recipe. That being said I can't always make the recipe I want because the mobile app doesn't always have an ingredient that I want to use. I wish there was a way to do the add-ons like the desktop version. I know there is a work around to get ingredients and profiles on the mobile app by saving them from a recipe made on the desktop version, but that is a pain and doesn't mean I will have an ingredient I want in the future. As of now I have to write in the notes section to add a missing ingredient to the recipe when I get home to my laptop. If there was a way to sync ingredients and profiles from the desktop to mobile over the cloud server that would be great, or an option for add-ons in the mobile app.
If the session data was as in-depth as the desktop version and I could match the add-ons to my desktop version easily, this would be a 5 star app for sure.
Another set of features that are on the desktop that would be great to have included on the mobile app is the shopping list and inventory. Making the shopping list and inventory sync to the cloud so they are available in your pocket when you are out shopping would be extremely helpful.
BrewHunk - Nice App
Don’t listen to the naysayers. This is a great standalone app. I used iBrewMaster for years and Apple took it off the App Store with no warning. After I updated my phone I could no longer use it. I looked for a new app and I know a lot of people use the full software version of Beersmith and love it. I was hesitant to download this app due to the 2.9 star rating. That is bunk. It does everything you need from designing and saving recipes to the cloud, water adjustment calculations, mash efficiency, etc…I would highly recommend this app as your go to recipe and brew day app!
Craw0621 - Good Mobile Option
I’m in the process of scaling from Homebrewer to Probrewer. While the desktop/web versions offer more utility the mobile version is an excellent option for playing with recipes/ideas while I’m away from my computer. Additionally the ability to share recipes via the cloud is an excellent feature. Overall a fantastic app with loads of handy brewing tools on top of the encyclopedia of recipes.
Caleb*miller - Don’t waste your time
I’m an avid user of the full version of the software and I love it. That said the mobile edition is a headache from the word go. Nothing connects, so you have to go re-enter all your equipment info, water profiles, re-download add ons like grain and hops, and will only hold a few cloud recipes.
In short, this is a really lackluster app to be selling in 2020, even if free it would have major downsides. I’m using BeerSmith on desktop to prep and other apps for timing and tracking of fermentation.
Whywouldiwantanickname - Perfect for a mobile app
I downloaded this to my iPad about 6 months ago, and it’s all I use. I can create recipes without any problem and most of the app is great. Cons: I still don’t like the timer function, and I can’t click and drag ingredients around within the recipe. But does it set me up to make great beer? Yep! Cheers
Wakeele - 1 Star Until…
I’ve emailed about this before quite a while back and it still hasn’t happened, so one star until we get the ability to input negative values across the calculators. I need it for Plato, temps, Brix, etc. I know it’s not as common, but cider gets to negative Brix values and I have beer at temps below zero degrees Celsius. I know I can deal with some by switching to specific gravity and Fahrenheit, but that’s a pain to go back and forth for conversations. Please address this soon.
Tipsy troll - Upset brewer
Used to love this mobile app. It used to have a timer on it for each step of your brew day for mashing in and hop additions. I don’t brew very often but the last few times I’ve brewed that nice little tool is not there.
Maresbri - Tools comma issue
Please check the calculation problem with comma as decimal separator, found out last night and had to change country region to fix it. Writing from Bolivia.
Veteran BeerSmith Guy 111 - Brewing Timer
Historically this is been a fantastic application.
I have no problem with prior versions of BeerSmith , BeerSmith mobile, or Even BeerSmith lite.
However, recently there appears to be a problem with the Brewing timer in any of the mobile apps.
I have experienced zero problems with BeerSmith desktop or beer Smith web, which seems to work very well.
I typically would’ve rated this Four, or even Five stars.
However, in its current form, with this error… it is very frustrating and will freeze my product in the mobile version.
I hope that BeerSmith can get this fixed soon.
Gefahrmaus - Finally! My Five star review!
I updated this morning. I immediately went to see if BeerSmith added 10 key entry to numerical fields… YES!
My previous review held back giving it one star for this feature alone. As a regular user of this app before and on every single brew day, the lack of 10 key entry made it cumbersome and annoying. No more!
My next brew day just got a little sunnier.
AltonD1234 - The default Standard
I have used this app since I started brewing ~5 years ago. Works great, no complaints.
Noped Right Out Of There - Outdated and barely functional
Horrible interface (the desktop version is awful too), minimal functionality, and frustrating. Got Brewfather for less than the combined price of this app and the desktop version and haven’t looked back.
Legolas154 - This app is nothing but problems
Tacos McBueno - Can’t open BeerSmith recipes
It’s not all that useful for me since you can’t import BeerSmith recipes with this BeerSmith mobile app. Seems strange that the developer decided to exclude support for their own file types out of the box.
Dillobird - Great concept, but not working
Unfortunately, this app doesn’t save anything. You can’t adjust recipes or anything like that, which kinda defeats the purpose. It’s a shame.
Dking3 - Great Homebrew tool!
I especially like the calculation and conversion tools, so handy on brew day!
Beckasabao - No Bueno
Cannot print recipes. Can find mash water volumes but no volume for sparge. Ive been using BeerSmith for years, very disappointed in this app. If people are to pay for this app please make sure it works and is functional.
AShap808 - Don’t buy
App doesn’t work. Can’t adjust any sliders/save equipment/recipes etc. going back to the good ol excel.
Sardoth - Excellent Initial Release
I've been using BeerSmith 2 for Mac, and BeerSmith Light for about 8 months now, and this full version release for my iPhone and iPad has been greatly anticipated. It works VERY well. I have not had any issues opening files on My Cloud or creating new recipes. I would STRONGLY recommend that users of the LITE version head directly to the "Help" on the bottom of the main loading screen. It will walk you through where the "add" buttons are so you can bring your Equipment Profile over, as well as all your custom Adjuncts, Hops and Yeasts from your desktop. It does not automatically bring everything over. You will need to do it yourself manually, but once it is finished you have access to them. Hopefully it will be automatically done one day, but as this is the initial release of the program I was pleased that it worked, I was pleased that I could alter recipes on my phone, and I was pleased that I can create new recipes as well. If you use BeerSmith, you would be advised to get this program. Brad Smith has always done a great job of adding new features to help keep this program in the forefront of HomeBrew programs, and I have no doubt this one will continue to receive improvements and bug fixes. But, as I stated in the beginning, I have not seen any major bugs and the program runs great. It was worth the wait!
HWG12143 - Awesome support from the developer.
When iOS 9.0.1 was released I naturally updated my system. When I next attempted to use my BeerSmith app on my iPad, I found that it would freeze when I tried to edit any of my recipes. My natural instinct was to contact the developer, Brad Smith, which I did. In less than a day, and on a Saturday I might add, I received a reply from Brad Smith. Brad said that he had worked hours getting his BeerSmith app ready for the new iOS 9 release. The app continued to work seamlessly with the new iOS 9 release. However, when Apple released a quick fix to their new system, iOS 9.0.1, they failed to give app developers like Brad, a heads-up. As a result 9.0.1 caused operational errors with the BeerSmith app and Brad was caught unaware and had to scramble to make the necessary changes to his app so it would, once again, work with the newly released iOS 9.0.1. Cudo's to Brad for working so hard to get this problem fixed so quickly for home and craft brewers like me who depend on BeerSmith as our go-to platform to store and develop our home brew recipes and configure our brews.
I am especially impressed with the speed with which Brad personally responds to questions regarding this brewing software. I've used at least three other systems and this is the best software out there in my opinion for brewing.
Jmeisternixon - Great update to 3.0
However there are some bugs to be squashed. I primarily find issues when I go to install the add ons. Sometimes (not all) when I go to install them they say that they have been installed but then the display will say something like “0 items installed” even though the display says they’re 12 intense that could be installed. So uninstalling it and re installing it seems to fix the issue. So I would definitely check those items.
Otherwise this app feels familiar to what were used to in UI and GI design which isn’t a bad thing, but I was hoping for something a little more updated. “Modern” looking. But familiar isn’t bad and the update is free which was a nice touch.
Steve O Reno Torino - Wonderful!
I bought the Windows desktop program first, and I was blown away by it. It figured everything including my refractometer readings with alcohol (Did you ever see the actual equations for a refractometer alcohol correction? There are math symbols in that equation I have never seen).
I found myself constantly walking downstairs to my computer updating and altering my recipes. I bought this app because it integrates with my Windows desktop program, and it delivers in spades! I just drag my recipes to the cloud folder and they're shared between my iPad, iPhone and Windows computer. No more walking downstairs to the computer as I alter and create recipes in bed now.
Today, I was able to use the brew day timer for the first time. I created a recipe on Windows and started the timer on my iPhone. I was able to do other things around the house, and have my iPhone chime and remind me of the next step in my mash and boil. Few programs impress me, but this one certainly does. It delivers on all levels.
Chris-Brown83 - Terrible desktop integration
This is basically a stand alone app. What I wanted (and thought this would be) was an app that syncs with the computer version through the cloud. NOPE! There is no easy way to sync anything. You need to create your recipes and save it on your computer. Then copy that into the cloud. Then go to your phone, find your recipe in the cloud, and then copy the same recipe onto your phone for offline access.
Now you have the same recipe 3 times. Once in the cloud, and once locally on each device. If you are offline, and make a change, you have to manually synchronize the other 2 recipes.
You must manually transfer over your customers equipment profiles, custom ingredients, fermentation profiles etc.
Do you have customs grain absorption for BIAB? You’ll have to set all that up manually again.
Nothing is automated. It’s pretty poor.
What this app should do is allow you to CONNECT all your devices through one account. Then any device that has the app (mobile or desktop) will automatically sync all the recipes, profiles, styles etc. Then, when a change is made, even offline, it syncs across all the devices once a connection is made. You know. The way it works for virtually every app.
Make. I mistake. This app is fine on its own. The desktop version is better. But as a “compliment” to the desktop, this falls woefully short!
KellerBrauer - Outstanding, but...
I have been using iBrewmaster for roughly 18 months. Frustrated with the constant inconsistent statistics and lack of adequate response from customer support, I decided to change.
BrewSmith 2 is simple and comprehensible. Works very well. The best part is Brad Smith, the creator of BeerSmith, corrects serious issues very fast.
Since I started using BeerSmith, I have stopped using iBrewmaster. BeerSmith is an outstanding app, but... It needs to do a better job with water profiles. It also needs to elaborate a bit with the grain choices. It also needs to allow the ability to arrange ingredients in the order you want after the ingredient has been selected. It also need to offer the ability to print a recipe!!
Clemson Engineer - Not worth $8
I bought this so I could use timer for brew days and take with me to local home brew store (LHBS). Three main tools I need are none existent on the mobile version.
1) A yeast starter tool is a must have when going to the LHBS and determining if the yeast they have is viable.
2) Ability to change and save grain steep time for extract brewing.
3) Ability to install add-ons for grains, styles, receipts, ect like on the desktop version.
4) It would be nice to have a hop/grain recommend replacement tool for times when LHBS doesn't have my desired grain or hop.
While I will use it, I wish that it had a few more essential features, especially since it is carrying a $7.99 price tag. I love the desktop version but would skip the mobile if I could do it again.
Bliss Ranch - It does a great job
The Beersmith App is a great tool for this very long time home brewer. It’s not a desktop application but it is very powerful and accurate. I can modify or correct recipes that are stored in the Beersmith cloud. I always have access to my recipes wherever I go. Develop your recipes on the desktop use your iPhone or iPad during the brew session. Needless to say I highly recommend this app. Take time to learn it’s full capabilities and you won’t be disappointed. It is regularly updated and support is great. Is it perfect, no. Is it a very powerful and low cost tool, absolutely.
Bolcrap - A must have for Beer Smith users!
I'm kicking myself for not downloading this sooner. Of course the price tag contributed to my reluctance, but it is worth every penny. The user interface is clean and well organized -- easy to navigate. I've written entire recipes using my existing equipment profiles and saved them to the cloud, where I can continue to tweak them from a PC. The best part is having the timers on your mobile device and being able to add the actual numbers as you go (measured OG, measured pre-boil vol, etc).
Roger Nordstrom Photo - I'm Impressed
Once I saw this was available for the iPhone/iPad I went right over and bought it. After creating a cloud account it was quick and easy to copy recipes to my cloud folder and retrieve them on my iDevice, both. It's easy to modify recipes and save profiles and ingredients that are part of the recipe. Creating a recipe is a snap as well. I haven't experienced and abends or hangs and find it quite responsive. I don't like the way Brad handles trub in the boil kettle but he has done a great job with this app right out of the gate.
Ryanthelion76 - Useful, but could use some updating
This app has been central to my homebrewing career and has resulted in two satisfactory beers and dozens of brand-new ideas and concepts. However, there are many ingredients and new hop varieties that I wish would be added to the database. For example, my most recent recipe used Mandarina Bavaria hops, a newer variety not listed in the app, and others such as Lemondrop and El Dorado that have become popular as of late in microbreweries. Adjunct-wise, I'd like to see hibiscus listed and allow a visual estimate of how much of the red hue is given off. Otherwise, this is a pretty decent app.
NWGuy219 - A must have for brewers!
This app is fantastic. The entire suite of software and apps are a must have for ANY level brewer. The 'cloud' account integration is flawless and a dream come true. My 'cloud' is connected to the iPad mounted in the brewery, my MacBook Air, and my iPhone. I can edit my recipes anywhere, anytime. Keeps great inventory for those who need it. I had a spreadsheet inventory for years. No longer needed.
Other brewing apps have great features, but this is the one I needed.
1. Price. The price is amazing for the entire suite of software/apps/cloud account.
2. Multi-platform. Many of the other brewing apps are not native to the iPad. This honestly surprised me.
3. Ease of use. Once you dive in, all features are easy to pick up.
This is a slick app. Very glad I took it for a spin. Thanks to the developer(s) and keep up the good work.
Newishtorunning - Updated after further use and research
I gave this a pretty low rating upon initial use, but discovered after a bit of research that additional functionality was available and that I did not fully understand how to take advantage of add ons, etc.
I do think that is still a challenge for new users and is why I continue to deduct a star, as ideally this could be made more user friendly, but it does have much of the functionality of the desktop version, which also has its quirks.
Macsyrinx - Average at best
Highly anticipated mobile version of the popular desktop application, but is lacking a large number of features. Compared to other brew apps, this deserves a 2 star. Compared to the desktop version, this deserves 1. Most used items are in odd or hard to find places, efficiency is not available, and it seems the dev is over his head with all he does as his support is far and few between. The most frustrating part, for me, is the lack of cloud syncing outside of the devs cloud. I am very much waiting for this app to at least get on par with all the other online, desktop, mobile app brew calculators.
ContrarianListener - Thanks, Brad!
This is a fantastic app for home brewers. It allows you to completely design your beer before brew day. This is the most complete brewing app by far. I also had some trouble losing my recipes at first. Brad Smith has some excellent tutorials, and I realize I was simply not clicking the right upper hand save button. I just made my first all grain recipe yesterday, and I nailed all of my gravities as expected. It is super easy after a little bit of learning.
Vandyfalcon - No desktop sync
This app gets dinged heavily for not having any sort of sync between the desktop version. Yes, there is a cloud feature, but is is expensive (the free version only allows 15 recipes). For the same or lower price there are other solutions that allow you to easily keep every device up to date. It’s too bad, because BeerSmith is so widely used and provides so many useful tools.
The other issue is that it just looks odd on iOS. (Same on the Mac). Understandable because it’s cross platform, but I wish there was more of an effort to look native.
Tim.kite - Great tool with a few missing features
This is a one stop shop for home brewing, and a steal at this price as it's nearly as capable as the desktop app. Made my first all-grain brew day even easier than my previous partial mash brews where I worked off a paper recipe and hand calculations.
A few things I'd like to see, though, that would make it 5 stars and worth easily double:
- Become a more iOS native app. Specifically swipe gestures for faster navigation, split screen support on iPad, and better use of landscape orientation on iPad.
- A brewers log function, to keep notes on brews after brew day. I use a Numbers sheet for this now, but it would seem to fit well in this app.
- A shopping list or a way to export ingredients lists to Reminders or something similar.
F1mike84 - Advanced Brewers: DO NOT BUY!
This app is perfectly fine for designing recipes. But without the advanced features of the desktop version, this app doesn't cut it for advanced brewers. Example: there is no check to ensure your mash water/grain amounts don't exceed your equipment capacity. Another example: there isn't a yeast starter tool!!!! For me, the lack of those two features alone makes this app worthless. I can make a recipe of grains and hops on paper. I need more than predicted OG and IBU values. I need real tools to manage an all grain brew day. Advanced brewers: save your money, use the desktop version.
Brewmaster K.D. - Home-brewer, Student
This app is extremely handy and nice for those quick recipe changes, timer for brew day, simple calculations and a whole lot more. Brad Smith did an excellent job with creating such a powerful home-brewing software!
I can say that Brew Smith is hands down the best $10 I've ever spend on an app and one of the best $10 I've put towards my Home-Brewing Adventure!
Thank you Brad Smith and have a Great Brewing Week to EVERYONE!!!
XXVI - Compliments Beersmith Desktop Software
This is a great compliment to the Beersmith Desktop software. I can create my recipes, do my calculations on my desktop then upload them into the cloud folder. Once, there I can carry my iPad out to my breeched and follow my recipe.
The built in timers are really helpful so I don't need to switch between apps.
This app doesn't do everything that the desktop software can do, so think of it more as a "companion" app. ( in my opinion)
Justin Kingery - Great idea slow implementation
I was so happy when I saw this app was coming out. I have used the PC version for awhile now and really like it. This app is very easy to use, when it works correctly. I seem to have horrible freeze problems with this app. I have even deleted and reinstalled it n my iPad 3. It will work as designed on reinstall, then freezes on second use. It lets me press buttons in app, but that's all it does, no response at all. I wish the silly thing would crash so I could send a report. I'll keep trying due to the ease of the PC version in hopes that an update gets this right.
Thejimmieg - Broken navigation
I use desktop version of Beersmith for every brew, listen to the podcast, and even subscribe to, and read the newsletters. So I am usually a fan. This is why I ignored the bad reviews and dropped $8 on this app. While exploring I went into settings and there the program remains, stuck due to a malfunctioning Back icon. Even after shutting down and coming back, the program is locked in the refractometer page, rendering the app useless.
Take some time and fix this Brad. It mars an otherwise brilliant suite of apps.
"I want my $8 dollars", screams the paper boy as he chases John Cusack. But seriously, fix it.
Seriously people??? - Update has too many bugs
Thank you for fixing the bugs! Much better…
Was happy prior to upgrade. This version has too many issues. Top of app buttons are hidden behind the iPhone battery, signal bar, etc. App seems to lag significantly. Hope there a fix soon! Want to love it, but probably going to revert back to previous version.
Kevjl2 - Very very cool!
I started with Beersmith on the PC. Initially a little overwhelming but soon it all made sense. Then came the Lite version and using it to brew from the phone was awesome. Now I've purchased the full blown app and I love it already. If you have the lite or desktop version, you will quickly see how the full version is a really excellent app and easy to use. Thanks again Brad!
Soxs - No where near the desktop app
I use the desktop app every brew day and bought this app think it would be good to make recipes while away from my desktop. This app has a long way to go to be a companion to my desktop. For example my grain and hop profiles are not in the app. You would have to have transfer all your recipes to the cloud to edit them away from your desktop. Now that may sound petty but I would expect a more streamlined experience where my desktop software's profiles and recipes were linked between this app and my software.
Rehlgood - Much improved still needs something
I got this app when it first came out and I was very disappointed with the lack user friendliness. Customer service was great and returned my money.
I decided to give it another try and I am very happy with the changes. BeerSmith mobile is seamlessly integrated with the desktop version and allows full recipe creation and editing on a mobile device. The cloud sharing is great.
The only thing I wish this app had is a way to track batch stages, something that showed a calendar that would notify you when the stage (secondary, cold crash, carbonation) is due. Competitors have this function and it is the only thing that they do better.
Great job beer smith!
Every day Friday - Squash the Bugs
I’ve enjoyed using this app for recipe development and actual brew days. However, with the newest update came a few bugs. I am no longer able to view or select a yeast when creating/editing a recipe. Even under “ingredients,” I am unable to see the various options for yeast. A window pops up saying there is a “java script error...” I would rate this app higher, but this error is a “thorn in my side” at the moment.
PeterS72dutch - Good combination
I use both the mobile app and the desktop version. The app is great for when I actually brew, on brew day. Using the timer, keeping track in general. Not as great for creating recipes, but it does the trick (again, app wise). There have been a few issues with the latest IOS, but the developer of this app is always very helpful to answer questions or concerns.
Eturt9 - Cannot change OG
2 stars only because I like the idea.
Cannot adjust Gravity at all for a new recipe. Defaults to 1.000. Makes it completely unusable as a recipe creator.
The cloud idea is great to be able to share recipes but it would be much better if I could sync my settings (mostly equipment settings and efficiency) from the computer. Right now I would have to manual match settings on the iPad which is limiting and really only allows it to act as a reader for recipes made on the computer.
RGIrv3 - Great app, issues fixed
Update: issues with iOS 9 have been fixed and the buttons all work again!
I love this app and have used it for numerous brews. I think the price tag is a little hefty considering you already pay $30 for the desktop software-but nonetheless I bought it and love it.
Bill54321 - Convenient
I don't plan to generate recipes on my iPhone, but it looks like it could be used fairly easily considring the small interface. The main draw for me is that I can generate recipes on my PC version of Beersmith, upload the recipe to Beersmith's cloud service, and then retrieve the recipes on my iPhone so that I can buy the ingredients at the homebrew store.
Brs0906 - Great app and excellent support
Love this app and have been using since the initial release. I feel it has more than paid for itself by reducing brew day stress and letting me draft out new recipes from the office (or wherever beer is on my mind). The developer was quick to get the needs iOS 9.0.1 stuff ironed out!! Keep up the good work!!
Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!
Tequila Demon - No calendar
I have been brewing for about 12 months and was previously using ibrewmaster 2 (ib2), bit the bullet based on numerous reviews and forked out another $12 on this app. Fairly intuitive (ib2 probably a little easier, but I'm also more familiar)and has more Australian ingredients loaded. Brew day timer is great, but it lacks a calendar or alerts that let you know when your batches are ready for dry hopping or other stages in fermentation which is a real feature of ib2 as I typically have 4-5 brews on the go at any time.
There is also a problem with the coopers ingredients and their colour and bitterness stats that requires a moderately lengthy override. This problem and the calendar have been reported on several blogs but not addressed by the designers which is probably the most disappointing aspect.
In all serviceable, not worth the second purchase, don't use any of the PC cloud stuff, maybe if you're in to that.
MikeB53 - Difficult to use
I followed the tutorial video but it was almost like I was using a different app! Some of the screens on the video I could not access (where is the screen with the timer?) I think you need to be an experienced professional brewer & technology specialist to use it!!
BrioPack - Frequent data loss
I lost all of my brewing session data, unit settings and other notes. No warning whatsoever. This app needs improved UX and more robustness. I can’t trust this app.
Swaytan666 - Clunky & Old
Okay functionality but feels like a VERY old app, especially considering some of the competition. Last update was 7 months ago. Have to go elsewhere.
Steve Hogarth - Great application
The application is easy enough to use, logical and scalable same as the PC version. Tried it on iPhone, but its just too small, on the IPad it works very well.
One feedback thought, it would be a good idea to be able to photos and attach them to the recipe. Just thoughts.
Benji1580 - Beersmith 2 mobile app
So far love the app. Easy to edit recipes just the same as the computer version.. Tried on iPhone but believe it will be better on iPad.
Golgo0013 - It’s ok
Couple of issues with this app. Firstly converting from US imperial to metric has some flaws as some weights are left in ounces & obviously teaspoons & tablespoons are different size as well. Secondly you can no longer seem to search for recipes in the app?
TheGlassBil - Awful
Really small set of features compared to the desktop app. UI is just as awful as the desktop app. Doesn't sync well at all with the desktop app. Would not recommend anyone to buy it. Just a waste of money.
AmBaal - Nice if it worked
On iPhone XR iOS 12 doesn’t let save anything.
Really could use ability to remove equipment from recipe
Yeteee - Bad design... Not worth it
Really average program. Interface is clunky and not displayed in a very logical order. Expected a lot more for the price. Ended up paying twice as much for brewmaster2 app, but it is what I thought this app was.
DjMikc - Not for metric fans!!!
The tools or advanced settings do not change to metric when changing from imperial to metric
Cjo36484628452 - Unusable
Love the PC version of this software, but this app is unusable, it's buggy as hell. The buttons are not working and I have to force quit to get anywhere. Waste of 10 bucks
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Darth Peaches - Can't track actual batches you've brewed.
The app is good, but needs a few more features.
You should be able to start a brew session, and then track and save it right until the end of the process... Brew, ferment, bottle/keg, tasting. And save note per the particular batch. Not just notes on the recipe.
It would help when you discover you've tried a different process at particular step. You can then say that made your brew better or worse.
Pitchero69 - Waste of money, doesn’t work.
You can’t export recipes to any other BeerSmith software. You can’t print a recipe. Can’t scale a recipe. Waste of money. I’ll stick to brewers friend. Terribly dissatisfied
Pattdev - Unable to scale recipe or create equipment profile
This is a very disappointing app if you want to scale to a larger volume that's greater than 10 gallons. I tried everything I could to build a larger equipment profile to match my 27 gallon system. The software allowed me to create a new profile but it always defaulted to a 5 gallon batch even after entering 27 gallons.
Gman Canada - Good app!
This app seems to work well for homebrewing. It appears to be missing an export feature so your brew sessions can be exported into a format for storage. If that feature gets added I’ll update my review to five stars.
Grinder169 - Do not get this app
Paid for Beersmith 3. It worked for 6 months then stopped. Tried for 6 weeks to get it resolved with Brad to no avail. He would answer me like once a week. Horrible customer service. Stay away.
Qui Jiba - Needs a lot of work
It’s fine to just quickly make a recipe I guess but the cloud sync functionality needs a ton of work. I can’t see why anyone would pay money for more cloud space when the recipes and custom equipment profiles sync poorly at best.
The app has lots of good recipe generation data but the user interface need to be overhauled frankly
GamingSince1979 - Nice but...
After using the software for many years on computers, the mobile version leaves you a bit stranded. There are many options missing, such as, exporting and sharing.
This means that if you have a Grainfather System for example you cannot export to the software directly. You need to go through hoops in order to get recipes to the other software.
This needs to be fixed ASAP.
Noimaplaya - BeerSmith developers please read this!!!
I love my beersmith computer app it has advanced my brewing exponentially. However why, in the age of modern computing, in an app i paid for, do i have to exit the session i am working on, then exit the recipe i am working on ,then find a calculator, all to adjust my hydrometer reading. Can this not be built in to my session. You input your current temperature, hydrometer reading and calibration, and voila! A correct reading. Seriously its easier for me to exit your app and go to the other website.
Mabonagrain - Update anytime soon?
Having a hard time using Beersmith since iOS9 update; lots of buttons arent working anymore (most notably the "back" and "save" buttons). I do hope there's a patch coming up since I cant use Beersmith as it is...
Snoufy023 - Manque des options
Il serait intéressant d'avoir toute les fonctions comme le programme sur ordinateur pour avoir le suivie de l'inventaire!!!
Puotanquetoi - Indispensable for those who want to make their own beer
Easy to use, this apps is essentiel to any homebrewers who want good results!
Derpina99 - Low ABV
It's a lightweight version of the desktop program. Needs an update to reflect current BJCP styles
Beer-snob - No log of batches brewed
The recipe portion of it is great, but what good is it without a log of batches brewed.
Pjdb9 - Should be much better
Powerful app but difficult to learn (and I'm not new to brewing). Slow and confusing recipe entry process. Great that there is access to recipes.
Pui2D - High hops not fulfilled
I had high hopes for this app. The back bone is there.it could be great. Its just slow when you click buttons like edit and save etc.. And it is twitchy, resulting in lost recipes. Im back to excel spreadsheets now.
