First off, this is not shareware, it's a crippled demo.

Secondly, there is not much here in this program, even if you paid for it. The only things it does are a very few very basic calculations, most of which are better suited as a simple table you can print out and put (for example) next to your CO2 equipment (in the case of force carbonation). Some of this, like the mash in calcs, are overkill. I mean, you would be better just to add 17 degrees to your strike water and go from there. If you are off a bit adjust grain or water a bit. Or, just use a spreadsheet. That is incredibly easy and you can find all your calcs on hbd.org.

There is nothing to log any of your batches, no database, only a very few calculations.

It ought to be a free program, but even then, wouldn't be that useful. Doesn't even begin to compare to a program like SUDS, unfortunately.

This is what we need on Mac OS X, a real brewing program, not a little app that does 2 or 3 routine calculations.

Looks promising, bu this is a bad demo. A time-limited version would be better than this crippleware. Will give more stars when I can actually evaluate the program.
