This app looks great. I don’t really have a PC at home these days… how does it compare to the desktop version? Are there lots of features missing or is it pretty feature complete? As an extract brewer, an AG to extract conversion is important. Looking around at iPad apps for brewing and this is up there… probably not a good place to ask what other good apps there is…

I would say it has almost about 85% of the recipe functionality of the desktop version, with the yeast starter tool being the obvious exception. The mobile version does not have many of the other tools like the calendar and inventory tracking however. But if you want to create, edit and brew recipes the mobile version has what you need.

Brent May 22, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Will you be adding the yeast starter tool to the mobile version?

How do I print the brew day notes like I can from the desk top version on the new mobile version?

Brad Smith May 22, 2013 at 10:08 pm

Sorry – I don’t have printing enabled yet, but just about everything that is on the brewday printout is on the timer page if you open any recipe and click on timer. I actually did a cross comparison when building that page for brewing.

Brad Smith May 22, 2013 at 10:08 pm

Yes – it is high on my list for an early update.

Sam May 24, 2013 at 6:23 pm

Awesome Brad – I was wanting to go ahead at the discounted price but the App Store says $10.99 ? Looking forward to using ! Thanks

Brad Smith May 25, 2013 at 1:24 am

I set the price at $7.99 US, but the app store translates that price for each country based on their own conversion and cost structure for that country. Unfortunately I can’t set the price outside the US – for the most part it is set automatically based on the US price.

Any easy way to get the 1.4 grain extensions into the mobile version of the app when I don’t own the desktop version?

Glen Marshall July 27, 2013 at 12:45 pm

I’ve been looking forward to this. I wanted to take advantage of the “in-app” iPhone upgrade you’ve mentioned. I now see on my BeerSmith Lite an upgrade option to “Purchase Upgrade” to add recipe editing, but when I try to use it, the “Confirm … Purchase” pop-up says [Environment: Sandbox] and when I try to buy it with my iTunes account, another pop-up tells me “This is not a Test User account… please create a new account in the Sandbox environment”. I’m completely sandboxed. Should I just continue to wait, or is this a problem that should be fixed? Thanks for a great product that allows free artistic expression in the science of brewing, with the kind of feedback that helps to prevent the undrinkable.

Is there a way to email a recipe from a mobile device??

Simon Burge October 16, 2013 at 9:35 am

Any updates on även the inventory will be implemented?

John rogers November 15, 2013 at 4:56 pm

I bought this from google play like two weeks ago and i like the software but I just upgraded to an Iphone. anyway I could avoid being charged twice for the software? I already have the mac desktop software too…

Brad Smith November 17, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Unfortunately Apple and Google have no way to share licensing data (not surprising if you think about it!).
Also my control over licensing and pricing in the stores is severely limited. They basically give me the option
to set a single price for my app, and I don’t have any way to offer package discounts or even simple coupon
discounts in either app store.

I do apologize…I just have no way within the constraints of the app stores to transfer the license.

Jason Scott November 24, 2013 at 8:51 pm

Hi Brad,

Does the mobile app have the ability to convert an all grain recipe to extract? Or is that only a feature of the desktop version?

Matt February 9, 2014 at 4:11 pm

A few suggestions to the mobile version: 1. A possibility to email recipes. 2. Dropbox support or similar, with an offline copy of all the synced recipes. 3. Auto conversion of recipes from US to metric & vice cersa, when the settings are changed.

It’s something that already exists in other beer apps and would be lovely to see in Beersmith too.

Erling Rohard July 3, 2014 at 7:15 am

Mobile app would be much better with Inventory and Shopping List. (And Yeast starter tool). Will you be adding these features?

hi i have just upgrade to iOS 9 having problems with beer smith app it will not save or edit

Paul Smerge September 25, 2015 at 10:32 am

IOS9 will not allow saving or editing to the cloud.

Brad Smith September 25, 2015 at 10:34 am

Yes – Apple released the 9.0.1 update without sending it to developers and it broke many of the fixes I put in place for IOS9. I implemented fixes for this in one day but it will take several days to get it through the Apple review process and get them to you. You should get an update to the app correcting the issue within the next week.

Trying the Beersmith mobile app for the first time today, two enhancements would be nice (one at least already mentioned):
– The ability to print a recipe. Handy for a novice like me to hand to the guy at the beer supply store
– The ability to see alternative ingredients with the click of a button. Seems like the supply store is always missing at least one of the ingredients and a simple way to find the alternative ingredient would be very handy.

Great app!

Mike November 17, 2016 at 7:14 pm

Hi Brad,

I’ve been using Beersmith for a few years now and really like it. I would like to be able to print my recipes out if possible. Also, if I install the app on my phone and my ipad, can I see the same recipe list on the cloud recipes?

Brad Smith November 20, 2016 at 12:12 pm

Anything you copy to your cloud account (which is private by default) will show up at if you log in there. You can do a basic printout from there.

Mike March 19, 2017 at 6:45 am

Already have beersmith how do I download it to my ipad

Brad Smith March 19, 2017 at 2:39 pm

I believe pellet hops are about 10% more effective, but BeerSmith uses pellet hops as the standard addition.

Dwain May 26, 2017 at 7:26 pm

How do I share one purchase of beersmith mobile between an iPad and iPhone?

Brad Smith May 26, 2017 at 10:21 pm

If they are tied to the same iTunes account you can install it on both devices after purchase. The license is tied to your iTunes account.

Andrew August 28, 2017 at 8:41 am

Can this integrate/sync with the desk version? I use the desktop version but the portability of the iPad is better on brew days.

Brad Smith September 1, 2017 at 12:39 pm

Yes – there are videos here on using the cloud to synch recipes between mobile and desktop:
