I was wondering if this was some kind of joke ;)  I'm glad you enjoy it and thank you for the kind words.

Believe it or not - I'm still running a one man shop even with the podcast, blog, book, newsletter, BrewPoll and BrewWiki (oh - and I'm spending about 50 hours a week programming the next version).  I'm always happy to hear that people are enjoying it and able to make use of the software and information I provide.  It makes up for the occasional terse email I get from someone having problems.

Happy Brewing,

Brad

I'm not saying you should raise the price   ;D...Yet...I still need to purchase the full version (which I will be doing in a few minutes).  I'd be happy to be a beta user as well once you're ready to test the release!

Are you kidding Brad?

Beersmith is BY FAR the best software out there for our passion of home/craft brewing. Otherwise your website/forums wouldn't be as popular as they are. Yes your one man shop has a following. I am sure everyone here feels the same.

I for one, am on (at least browsing) several times a day.
I wouldn't think about designing a beer and then brewing it without BS.
In fact BS has enabled me to "think outside the box" (and I hate that saying - way overused).
And I am especially grateful that you do all you do and provide a product like this for a reasonable price.
Do I enjoy and use Beersmith? You bet I do! I have been brewing for thirty years (roughly), and despite the very few issues with Beersmith .... I find it a great piece of work! VERY valuable!

I would probably purchase BS for a lot more money, but very glad I don't have to.
Looking forward very much to ver 2!

All us devoted users need to get one additional friend to buy, before Brad gets the big head.   ;)
