Who is using what?  This MicroHomebrew site that Denny suggested is pretty nice but it's been down over the last few days which could be temporary, I suppose.  I looked around and found a couple but I'm looking for suggestions.  Brewer's Friend makes you pay to use it after X number of recipes and some of the others are glitchy.  I found one called "Brewgr" that's decent but when I went to print out the recipe (which I typically do so I can make notes on the sheet) the print job was FOUR PAGES!  :o  All the information was on page 1 so I just printed that page.  Anything else out there?  Cheers.

What did chils used to use? He had an online calculator that seemed to work well for him. 

 

I purchased Beersmith years ago. It wasn't expensive and I have no ragrets.

I think I had Beersmith.  No regerts, huh?  Maybe I'll check it out again.  Thanks.

I use it for gravity and IBUs.  I might as well just make or tweak someone else's SS.

It's been this way since at least last Thursday or so.  Hopefully it's temporary.  Thanks gang.

Same for me.

 

Ken, if you want I can send you the spreadsheet I have and you can give it a go.  You would need to modify it for your system.  I still have Beertools and Beersmith ( along with the beer smith app) but I use my spreadsheet the majority of the time.

I also have a spreadsheet I've been using for years...so it's a little dated, but does the job. I recently put it in google docs so I can use the same sheets on multiple computers.

 

Here's a link if you want to look: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

 I thought it was brewtoad and they shut down.

Tony wasn't aware of the problem.  He's located it and is working on getting it fixed ASAP.  Wotta guy!

I use brewers friend. The paid one has a lot of nice features. It can really help you get super dialed in. I use brunwater for water but it does have a water section. Mostly I just use it to get my OG, color, and IBUs
