BeerAlchemy aims to make creating great beers easier. It offers recipe formulation tools that give the brewer immediate feedback on how changes they make will affect their finished beers. The program supports all-grain, partial mash and extract brewing as well as both fly and batch sparging. It also helps the brewer keep organised by storing all their recipes and batches in a familiar folder-based system. Brewers can export their recipes as web pages, PDFs or in the BeerXML and .rec file formats to share their recipes with others.
An extensive ingredients database as well as many predefined mash schedules are included and may be edited to suit the brewer.
The program also includes inventory management tools and an integrated shopping facility with built-in web browser and Skype support.
The application also includes quick brewing calculators for beer colour, bitterness, specific gravity corrections, mash calculations, refractometers and pitching rate that continue to function after the demo period has finished.
