New Free Open-Source Homebrewers Tools

A new open-source application has hit the Interwebs designed specifically for the homebrewers among us. The application, entitled Brewtarget, is designed to help homebrew enthusiasts create and organize their beer recipes. Apparently, it’s a free, open-source version of Beer Tools. From the Brewtarget homepage,

I was fed up with the lack of good open source beer software, so I thought I would make a small application that would do all the calculations for me.

The ultimate goal of the project is to be able to take a set of user-given constraints and immediately formulate a recipe.

A similar open-source program, Brewsta, was also released recently at Source Forge. Any homebrewers out there have any experience with either of these programs?

  1. Thanks for the heads up about the Beertarget program. Just getting into home brewing and this should be useful.

  2. There is also the Brew Troller for controlling your home brewing setup (“BrewTroller is an open source standalone brewing control system based on the Sanguino platform.”).
