BeerSmith 2, the top selling home brewing software, comes to Android!

An integrated brew day timer with notifications shows you step by step instructions for your recipes and plays an alarm as each completes.

Love the program I'm a pc beersmith user, had the app since it came out, upgraded as soon as I could to full version. I wish we could have more than 15 cloud storage slots, us long time users have a lot of recipes to transfer over it would be nice to be able to do them all at once. Thank you so much for the hard work you've put into this program. Makes brew day a dream

It's not great. It allows me to see my recipes so I don't have to run back to my computer or waste paper printing them, but there are 3 major things wrong with this app: 1. It never gets updates 2. There should be a better system than this lite/pro setup. I already own the full fledged beersmith application on desktop, why force me to go back to my computer and re-cloud upload my recipe any time I need to make a tweak? Perhaps email address or key validation in-app could show who owns the desktop app and the "full" app features could be available for us. After paying for the desktop program, I feel cheater paying for a lite version on mobile. If I have to pay then at least give me the full functionality 3. Bugs bugs bugs. The timers don't work properly is all I can remember off the top of my head. 4. Know the ecosystem you're developing an app for. The UI is *terrible*. Nothing in this app would pass for Android Design Guidelines even on Android Gingerbread. The UI is incredibly infuriating. If this thing was updated to material design that would be a *huge* improvement. All in all I see this app as a money grab. It's kind of like paying almost $4 for a PDF viewer.

Serious homebrewers use this app It is my recipe editor. My ingredient shopping list. My brew day timer. My brewer's calculator. Most useful APP i have ever purchased.

A Google User

Good App Works well because my brew house is not near my main PC. Works great along side the full PC version. Only downside is every time I log in I have to change the settings back to Metric, they don't seem to save!

David Rice

Great app and support. This app is great I can access all my recipes from my phone or table using the cloud. There is also great support for the app with fast replies to email questions. I appreciate all the help thanks.

Bud Molyneux

Great app! The app is great and easy to use. Love being able to edit recipes from my phone.

Zack Dayton

Good product, needs more cloud integration I would really like to be able to view my shopping list on the app. It would be nice if that could copy over the cloud

John Endisch

Love this app. I love this app, couldn't brew without it. My only compliant is minor and probably only affects me. I upgraded when the app first came out, my icon still says lite on it and when I had to warranty my tablet I couldn't get the full app without buying it again. I really do love the app and may just buy it again.

Michael Clark

Getting better I like this app. It isn't quite as useful as the desktop version but it's getting better.

Stepan Rychtar

Excelent customers support! It ain't as ingenious as the desktop version, but 5 stars from me for customer service.

Shaun Steel

Feel ripped off The software works fine, but I bought this and not long after the full version comes out and takes some of the features out of this. If I knew the full version was coming I would have saved my money and waited!

Kevin Bagshaw

Good but flawed Alarm notification needs to but MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH louder, almost silent on one x and nexus 7, the alarm doesn't repeat, so if you miss it, tough. My phone wakes me in a morning, this couldn't wake me if it tried. A time mode, where the clock takes the FULL screen, with maybe the next step/addition across the top, and the following one underneath, would make it much easier to see across the brew house, particularly if using a tablet (the screen needs to be optimised better for tablets too).

Talen Quigley

Very useful I love being able to pull up my recipes on my phone at the brew supply store. Best of all if I decide to make any recipe changes I can save them right away rather then waiting until I get home.

Stuart Evans

Essential for good beer Couldn't do the beer without it.

Chris Leclerc

Great app. Great service. I love the app. It makes it so easy to nail down recipe ideas no matter where I am. It is especially nice to know that great service comes along with it. I had an issue, so I sent an email and got a response in about ten minutes asking for more info. My issue was corrected the next day. I am very happy with BeerSmith. I own the upgraded lite app as well as the desktop version and I would definitely recommend both.

bob lewandowski

Great program! Last update fixed my missing mash timer issues. Thanks for the quick update!

Erlend Simonsen

Password issue resolved.

Glenn Harris

Needs desktop sync Decent, but can only sync with desktop using beersmith cloud and has an iOS style interface. I ended up using Dropbox and Titanium Media Sync to sync recipes with the desktop, and BrewAide to open them.

A Google User

Reasonable Functional but basic. Equipment profile page not working

Robert Abbott

Subpar This is basically a link to your recipes you create on your desktop. You can not create or edit recipes on the device. Do not buy unless you own the desktop version! How about a refund?

A Google User

Thank you Brad This is fantastic! I cant wait for the ability to edit recipes! If you need beta testers I would love to help with that Brad!

A Google User

Great way to integrate and go paperless! This app is like the companion to the full blown program, much the same way as your phone is typically a companion to your full blown computer. I've used this on two bees thus far and it sure makes it easy to get that info quickly. Also great when going to the brewshop for ingredients. I can't wait until the recipes become editable!

Andrew Willing

Purchased with the hope of updates For $4, and only useful if you purchased the desktop version, it needs serious work. For these entry costs, Brad, speed improvements and a native android interface (not an ios port with ios graphics and style) are expected. I look forward to future versions.

Jeff Alfeld

Samsung galaxy s2 Poor performance, and not nearly enough functionality at this cost. Registered users of beer Smith desktop should have gotten this for free. If it works well and had more functions would have been happy to buy it.

Filip Håkansson

Quite ok Very useful even though its a lite version where you can only view recipes. Good tool to use when brewing, but I'm missing the possibility to set temperature when calibrating hydrometer.

Chris Coslor

Doesn't work on Nexus 7 The app's profile let's me buy it for my tablet, but when installing, I get an "Incompatible Update" error. Not cool.

James Mitchell

Brew day I would love to make changes to my recipe without having to go to my laptop. I'd love to ditch the laptop, but can't without a full version. Otherwise, I love the program. I've had the desktop version for about 6 years!!

TT Mooney

Only useful with the Beersmith Cloud service Think you can copy a recipe from your desktop through any other method than the Beersmith Cloud? Think again: you can't even copy a file over USB. I don't want to use the Beersmith Cloud, so this is basically just a set of calculators. You can get those for free in other apps. Probably quite useful if you do have the Beersmith Cloud. But not for me.

Brett Stewart

Awesome Five stars when recipe's editable. Cheers great app.

Kyle Alder

Essential Beersmith for the PC is a program I don't know how I brewed without before and now the "lite" version for Android had become that as well. I put parentheses around lite because this app is incredibly robust and chalk full of useful tools for calculations and conversions. A must have for any serious brewer.

Tarmo Tali

Pretty neat Wee bit slowish and lacks editing but very nice companion for desktop version.

Ryan Rogers

Love it!! Great app to go with the software.

A Google User

Scam/Ripoff This app will NOT let you view your own recipes from your computer unless you use the cloud service. If you want to use more than 10 recipes, you have to pay $15 for a beercloud subscription. What a joke. Rip your customers off by not letting them load the files locally. IT'S A TRAP!!!!!!!!!! He hooks you in with the $4 app, wont let you edit stuff, and then has the audacity to require you to use the cloud service to view your own recipes. The integration here is unacceptable. Word to the wise: Get BrewAide and use a Dropbox folder for your recipes. Works like a charm. I love BeerSmith for PC but this is a joke.

A Google User

Does what it says Makes for a nice simple way to manage your brewing without lugging the laptop into the kitchen. The timer works well and it's nice and convenient for checking what you're doing.

A Google User

Best mobile brewing software It is the best mobile brewing software and connects my beersmith recipes via the cloud. And it's only gonna get better when the full version becomes available

A Google User

Perfect brew day companion! No more printing! Integrated timers! I have used Beersmith since the beginning nearly a decade ago and always opted to print my recipes because no app seemed to give me all the details I needed from my recipe. This is the perfect companion on brew day!

donald hellen

A must-have for Beersmith PC users This is a great subset of the Beersmith 2.0 PC version. It has all of the tools you would expect to be used on brew day away from your desktop PC, and it fits the needs of both beginners and all-grain users. It will allow you to store recipes locally, and if you really feel the need for cloud storage and access, you can use the subscription cloud service offered by Beersmith, but it's free for up to 10 recipes. My option is that the cloud storage isn't worth it, but your needs may be quite different from mine. I would recommend saving the annual subscription cost for cloud storage and use local storage, or maybe Dropbox if you want free cloud storage. You will have to copy your recipe file from Dropbox to where the Beersmith lite app stores he local files. Contrary to what some reviewers have claimed, this is NOT a scam to get you to pay for the Beersmith cloud storage service. As I mentioned, there is both an option for local storage as well as cloud storage. The cloud may be easier to use, however, to keep any changes synchronized and in the same place. Otherwise, learn how to copy and move files from the PC or Dropbox to the Beersmith recipes folder and save some money.

Much better! Review updated to 4 stars. Thanks for addressing the timer issue! Have run a couple of batch simulations and am happy to say I'll run this exclusively on my next brew day. A few little quirks left, but it's a matter of preference and semantics. Great work.

A Google User

Love it! Used it a couple weeks ago and it worked perfectly! I love not having to bring the laptop out to the garage on brew day! Having access to the cloud was just icing on the cake. Thank you Brad for another great product.

Anders Refsahl

Nice Works excellent on both my devices, Galaxy Tab 10.1 with CyanogenMod 10.1 and Galaxy Nexus 5. I create a recipe on my computer, transfer it to the beer smith cloud, and running through the brewing process with mash and boil timer on the Tab.

Ruben Garcia

All I can is awesomeness! Pure awesomeness!

Boo Boo

Good App Works well because my brew house is not near my main PC. Works great along side the full PC version. Only downside is every time I log in I have to change the settings back to Metric, they don't seem to save!

A Google User

Recent Update has destroyed this app The most recent app has caused this app to frequently delete all of my recipes and settings. Really disappointing as it was a great app

Antonio Fernandez

1 small problem Great app, but no timer sounds after last update on Galaxy Tab 4

Chris Visinho

Perfect Love having this on the fly when I'm not at my home computer. Can mess with current recipes, edit, and create whenever I get ideas.

Mark Wood

Frustrating app Timers on Android do not work at all. I've traded a few emails with the developer and he claims to be working on it, I can't begin to fathom that a simple timer is that hard to code.

Mark Wood

Timer Fixed! Thanks Beersmith, you made my brew day happier.

Travis Dozer

Does what I want Makes it nice to have your recipes with you all the time. Brew day timer is great as well

Matthew Plover

Alarms Yes it is fixed. Your are a champion.
