Fun Fast and Easy to Use

Years in the Making – BeerSmith 3 has been redesigned from the ground up to give it a modern look and feel with ribbons, themes and tabbed browsing. Its designed to make your brewing as easy to use as possible.

Mead, Wine and Cider Support

BeerSmith 3 now includes support for mead, wine and cider recipe types as well as new native support for fruit, juice and honey to make it easier than ever to build and track your favorite beverages in one tool.

New BeerSmith 3 Water Profile and Mash pH Calcs in the Recipe

BeerSmith 3 is the only software with integrated water profile builder and mash pH estimation and adjustment built right in the recipe builder for all grain brewers.  This lets you see the direct impact of a bit of gypsum on your water profile.  The mash pH tool takes into account your mash water additions, grain bill and also acid adjustments.  Eliminates the need for a separate water tool or spreadsheet.

Build Recipes Quickly

Building a recipe in BeerSmith is as easy as picking ingredients off a list. Hundreds of preloaded ingredients are available including grains, hops, yeasts, misc ingredients and waters. As you add ingredients, the color, gravity and bitterness are updated automatically.

Match your Favorite Beer Styles

Choose from nearly 100 beer styles in our extensive BJCP style guide.  The BJCP style guides for mead and cider as well as an extensive custom Wine style guide are also included.  BeerSmith graphically shows color, bitterness, gravity and alcohol comparisons against the style as you build your recipe.

Brewing from Beginner to Expert

BeerSmith’s new design tab lets you design great extract recipes, and in fact we’ve added new Extract features in BeerSmith 3. However, we also have advanced support for all grain brewing, mashing, batch sparging, brew-in-a-bag and more. Additional tabs can display over 100 details about your recipe and brewing session.
