The program supports all-grain, partial mash and extract brewing as well as bothfly and batch sparging. It also helps the brewer keep organised by storing all their recipes andbatches in a familiar folder-based system. Brewers can export their recipes as Web pages, PDFs or in the BeerXMLand .rec file formats to share their recipes with others.
An extensive ingredients database as well as many predefined mash schedules are included andmay be edited to suit the brewer.
