You can get versions that run on Mac, iPod, iPhone and iPad You can also synchronize the data between your mac and mobile device(s) for convenience and data protection.

Date: Thu, 28 Apr 2011 06:51:40 -0500 From: homebrewtim at mac.com Subject: Brewing apps for the Mac I've used Beeralchemy and currently use BeerTools. BeerTools has everything I need except for a way to sync to an App on either my iPad or iPhone. The BeerTools forum is active and the developer seems very responsive. In fact, when I switched from my PC to a Mac, the BeerTools guy gave me a new registration code so I did not have to re-purchase it. It's most recent release has a huge Ingredient database and supports inventory and individual recipe water profiles. I've also seen info on the Beersmith site that he is working on a Mac-native version of their software.

Any > recommendations? I've been using Beer Tools Pro for a few years now. It's the only software I've used, so I can't really compare it to others, but it does everything I need. Ingredient database is large, interface is pretty intuitive. Most of all, it's actively supported. Paul Farragut, Tennessee Return to table of contents

I would not only rate it best for the Mac, but I like it better than the PC versions like Beer Smith and the others. If you want to go all out they have a smaller version for the iPhone and they sync. I no longer take my computer into the brew day. Just the phone and an easy sync. Mike Return to table of contents
Date: Thu, 28 Apr 2011 16:20:13 -0400 From: Paul Hethmon <phethmon at hethmon.com> Subject: Barleywine Carbonation Tips I've got my first barleywine in the fermenter and I think about ready to bottle. I started with an OG of 106 and figuring to end at 21 (assuming an attenuation of 80%). It's been fermenting for 6 weeks now and if I've reached the calculated FG, what's the recommendation for priming sugar for bottling? I'm thinking somewhere between 1.5 and 2.0 volumes. In case it makes a difference, this got the Wyeast 9097 Old Ale seasonal yeast from last fall. thanks, Paul Farragut, Tennessee Return to table of contents
