"This is Home Brewing For Mac Users"

June 25, 2007  |  By Lardlad

 |  Version: BeerAlchemy 1.5.3


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
If Apple were to make a home brewing app, this would be it. Shopping function is great for looking up prices without having to leave the application â?? It has WebKit built right in, try getting that with another freeware app. And if you have Skype, you don't even have to pick up the phone to call your home brew shop. Plus it'll open and export .REC files, so you can swap files with all your homebrew buddies on PC's using ProMash.

Other apps will help you organize your recipes pretty well but in addition to a well thought out approach, the design is the best I've seen for a brewing app on any platform. PC users will wish it was available to them as well.

Support is also top notch. Don't be bothered that it isn't free, it is well worth it.

"Excellent Software/Developer"

March 18, 2006  |  By joeschwabmd

 |  Version: BeerAlchemy 1.1.2


This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've also tried multiple homebrewing software packages for the Mac and this one has been of the most help to me. Furthermore, the developer has been extremely responsive to my feedback requests in a very timely manner. The options for exporting and sharing recipes makes the software extremely extensible (all XML-based), and the calculators and shopping list functions within are excellent. Keep up the fantastic work! Worth the money!

Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.0
Syncing now works directly Mac to Mac and iDevice to iDevice as well as between a Mac and an iDevice. Due to changes in how the data is synced and also what is synced, you need to have the same major version running on both partners. This means you cannot sync a mac running BA1 with an iPad running BA2 for example.

There will inevitably be questions about iCloud syncing. Yes, it would be great. Sadly, despite spending a ridiculous amount of time on it, I could not get it to work reliably with Core Data (which is what BA2 uses to store its data). I'm not the only one to have come across these problems either. There are other options out there but they need a lot more investigation. One other issue with iCloud is that it's only allowed in apps sold through Apple's app stores which would tie me to the Mac App Store.
