BeerSmith Mobile Home Brewing Reviews

Craft seeker

Lots of Potential but...  Craft seeker  3 star

I have several brewing apps and wish one would push themselves to be the best because all are lacking something. Strengths: Great for recipe design. Adjustable parameters to dial in predictive brewing. Weaknesses: Poor app for the brew day to take you through the process. Poor brew history logging. It should be automatic rather than a manual clunky process. The bottom line is the app needs a total makeover. The developer should hire someone in the biz to make the app intuitive.


Great tool with a few missing features  tim.kite  4 star

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.


Great app. Works wonderfully  Swooshhhhh  5 star

I have been a home brewer for years. This app really does the job. I wish the developers would add a function to add pictures. I do a lot of documentation with pictures. And to have it built in the app would be great.


Missing some important things  legolas154  1 star

Overall this app is okay... but it's missing some of those "no-brainer" type things that should absolutely be included in a mobile app. My biggest issue: why is inventory and shopping list not available? I would think that would be one of the most beneficial things to have on your phone. I'm out at the Homebrew shop picking up some stuff... and I forget if I indeed have that 8oz of specialty malt I need... this app is entirely useless here.

Essential Tool  Wino Junko  5 star

I don't normally write reviews, but I must for this app. I have been using BeerSmith since I started Home Brewing. The app is loaded with essential information. Nearly a one stop app. Brad, the author has ported a mountain of knowledge into this app. It's a bargain for the price. It helped me better understand the numerous variables in brewing. Cheers!


Needs some improvements  Cmatth71  3 star

I love using BeerSmith on my Mac, but the mobile version really needs some more of the features that are only available on the computer version.


Great app, but needs just a tad more...  Quart2000  3 star

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. *update* 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.


Much improved still needs something  Rehlgood  4 star

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!


Amazing App  Goon301  5 star

This is an amazing asset to my brew day and with developing recipes.


Great Potential  De3isit  3 star

I really love the app and the cloud service. My only complaint is that it needs to be more similar to the desktop. I have had the desktop for years and love it, especially the newest update. Please update the app to be more seamless to the desktop version.

Very Handy!  homesteader1982  4 star

Love playing around with this software! It's so much fun to create recipes with it. The only thing I would change is to have a separate section for recording brew data or at least be able to access and edit brew data without going into the editing of a recipe.

Missing so much  stevies phone  1 star

Doesn't sync with desktop version, profiles and ingredients need to be moved over one by one. Can't seem to find key info like total water needed.


Useful, but could use some updating  ryanthelion76  4 star

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.


No where near the desktop app  soxs  1 star

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.


Update killed my timer function  philm00x  2 star

The update looks great but when I try to access the timer, it throws up a JavaScript error and then I can't do anything else in the app. I'll close it out and try to do it again to no avail. Turned my phone off and back on and still gives me errors. Can I revert back to the old version?


Solid Update  Chase_Nathan  4 star

Much cleaner looking and feels less cluttered. My favorite recipe and brew day tracker by far.


Compliments Beersmith Desktop Software  XXVI  4 star

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)


More for quick 'cloud' usage  traviswilkinson  2 star

Lacks basic calculators like water need tool. Was looking for an all-in-one, this is not it. Description was not clear that ISO version is meant more for 'cloud' linkage to your PC/Mac. PC version has all the tools (calculators) needed to brew, not this. More for on-the-fly recipe ideas.


Not small batch friendly  Fourstr00  1 star

Doesn't cater to small batch at all


Doesn’t Sync Across Devices  Rokfather  2 star

I intended to use this app on my phone and iPad and switch seamlessly between the two. But I am unable to save recipes from the cloud from either device. Apparently, you must have the PC/Mac version to actually save recipes to the cloud, and then they can be accessed from the iOS devices. That is not a useful syncing function to me. I wish that was clear before I spent the $8 on this app...
