BeerSmith 3 Mobile and Ubuntu Linux Versions Released

by Brad Smith on August 12, 2018 · 7 comments

This week I published the BeerSmith 3.0 update for BeerSmith Mobile on Google Play, iTunes and also the Amazon app store. In addition the Ubuntu Linux versions of BeerSmith 3 are also now available.

BeerSmith Mobile Version 3

BeerSmith Mobile version 3 adds mead, wine and cider support to the mobile platform as well as a number of enhanced beer features. The update is free for existing BeerSmith Mobile version 2 users who previously purchased the full version. As I mentioned in a previous message I am planning to discontinue the “lite” version of BeerSmith mobile in the future so it will not be updated.

The Android and Amazon app store releases are done and available now for purchase from the Google Play or Amazon app stores. The iTunes/iPhone/iPad version has also been released but is being staged over the next few days so it may be a day or two before your device updates. BeerSmith mobile is a separate purchase from the desktop version of BeerSmith as you must buy it through one of the mobile app stores.

The changes to BeerSmith Mobile version 3 match many of the new features available in BeerSmith 3 desktop. These include:

  • Support for mead, wine and cider recipe types and many new ingredients and styles to support them
  • Addition of a new water profile tool (from the edit recipe page) for adjusting water profiles
  • Mash pH estimation and adjustment that is integrated with the recipe builder and water profile used
  • The addition of both local folders and also folder in the BeerSmith cloud
  • New juice, fruit and honey ingredient types to support the use of these ingredients in beer as well as cider, mead and wine
  • Boil adjustments for high altitude brewers
  • Temperature adjustments on a “per hop” basis for whirlpool hop additions
  • An improved interface with pop up menu for recipe editing

If you don’t have BeerSmith 3 mobile you can purchase it from either the iTunes or Google Play store.

BeerSmith 3 for Ubuntu 18.04 and 16.04

This week I also released BeerSmith 3 builds for Ubuntu 18.04 and 16.04 in a Debian package. BeerSmith 3 for Linux is the full desktop package with all of its features on the Ubuntu Linux platform. BeerSmith 3 may also work on some other Linux platforms though it may require additional dependencies to be downloaded first. You can see a complete list of package dependencies by running “dpkg -I BeerSmith*.deb” against the downloaded debian package.

The desktop version for Linux is available as a free 21 day trial which you can download below.

Should the Android version of the Beersmith lite app upgraded (purchased) to the full app from within the app (not directly from the Play Store be upgraded from 2.3 to 3 by itself as well as the full app bought directly?

Hi! I had upgraded to the full version from within the application. Should the automatic upgrade also be applied to my “upgraded lite” version?

Hello, I’m missing out on BS3 for an option that keeps my folders and recipes synchronized between the cloud and local. This would be important because we could have more speed and agility in working with the recipes and access the latest versions even without internet. Another important option is that when I copy a recipe from the local folder to the cloud it asks me if I want to override, and not create another recipe in the cloud. It doubles, tripling the same revenue.
thank you

For those who originally purchase the Lite version and did the in app upgrade, is there any upgrade path, or do we need to purchase the full version.

I’ve noticed that Beersmith 3 Mobile (Android) no longer sends out notifications or alarms after upgrading from version 2.

Is there a notification settings area hidden somewhere?

Does the windows license which we purchased cover the linux build – we are trying to replace all windows with linux…

Yes you can download and install the windows version using an existing license. You can manage your active devices by logging in here:
