  1. If you're not using Beersmith for your brewing, you're half-assing it. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2015

    This software is essential for brewing. It can scale recipes, account for equipment differences, help you calculate bitterness and color, you name it.

    This software is the culmination of thousands of years of brewing knowledge, put together with love and care by Prof. Brad Smith.

    In previous eras, Kings and Emperors could conqueror the known world, but had absolutely nowhere near the power of Brewsmith2 to nail the IBUs of their Pale Ale perfectly. Every single f****g time is what perfect means.

    Don't be a half-assed, filthy, dark ages peasant brewing in your bathtub with a 50% throwaway rate and mediocre results.

    Get Brewsmith2, figure it out, be a winner.

    *Note* Conquering the known world and declaring yourself King of Earth is a non-guaranteed side effect of using this software.

  2. Once you use it you won't want to brew without it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2015

    BeerSmith is an excellent software for brewers of any caliber. From evaluating your recipe design and grain bill to calculating efficiencies, Beer Smith effectively gives you an overview of how specific brews will turn out compared to style guidelines being followed. Figuring out aspects such as IBUs, SRMs, ABV, water profiles , sparging amounts and many other factors couldn't be easier!

  3. There is NO better software 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2015

    BeerSmith 2 is hands down the very best software for brewing. The degree to which you can customize and fine tune everything, from your system to your ingredients is second to none. I find it essential for making recipes with accurate predictability.

  4. Great experience! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Feb 2015

    Purchased Beersmith 2 software and received the confirmation email and key very quickly. Birdman Brewing continues to be one of my go to suppliers for my brewing essentials.

  5. Fantastic Service 5 Star Review

  6. Great Software 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Dec 2014

    This is really great brewing software. I previously used beertools, but absolutely love beersmith 2. if you're on the fence i suggest downloading the free trial, i believe it has full functionality for 20 or 30 day. my favorite part, aside from calculating for me, is being able to fine tune equipment, wort loss, mash specifics and accurate cost-to-brew (given you make sure inventories match your LHBS).

  7. Just what I needed. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Nov 2014

    I downloaded and used the free trial before buying the activation code. I absolutely love the program. It has allowed me to experiment with recipes to make "My" own beer. And Birdman has the lowest price for the code. Can't beat it.

  8. Best beer recipe software 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2014

    Having read many posts about BeerSmith over the past year, I finally bought this amazing program. Though I'm still learning to use all the functions provided, I must say that it was very easy to get started designing recipes. This is the most comprehensive and well designed recipe builder I have seen. It has all the tools and capabilities you'll need, all in one place!

  9. I like this software. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Oct 2014

    My son has a copy of this software and I decided to check it our for myself. I have been home brewing for 43 years and find that Beersmith is a great idea. I can tempt myself to make up recipes on my own and add more enjoyment to my home brewing.

  10. Good program for homebrewers 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Sep 2014

    BeerSmith in great for designing recipes, preparing for most aspects of brew day operations, and for tracking and improving brew house efficiency. That being said, the program has somewhat of a learning curve (many variables to consider), and the documentation is not as good as I would have liked.

    Still, I am glad I purchased BeerSmith and Birdman has it at a good price.
