awkward and inefficient - TRY IT FIRST

I had high hopes. I'm a Windows Phone user and wanted to see something quality written for W8 and WP8. This isn't it. Very limited libraries; awkward and confusing mash profiles (who does 5 step mashes anymore???) and very inefficient displays (4 screens to show my ingredients? Really?) as well as incorrect volume calculations (1.4 Gallons sparge water for a 10G batch?) and very clunky ingredient inputs. Definitely TRY before you BUY. I'm incredibly disappointed.

Great App!

Love this app. Great interface, calculators are setup very nicely and tons of good information on different ingredients. The only thing missing is the ability to keep track of recipes within the app itself, with this I think it would be perfect!

Excellent App

I love this app, it gives me many choices of recipes and has excellent assistance programs for brewing my own brew. Just wish it also incorporated additional recipes such as ones for honey mead and other drinks that don't use hops for fermentation. Aside from mead, beer, and malt liquors, I know a few people who also home brew wine, and they would love this app also if those recipes were incorporated into this app. All in all, very good app, well worth the price, very resourceful. Thank You.

Nicely done a must have

Great job I tried one of my favorite recipe and it's right on the spot. The references are quite useful and well documented. Some graphical design improvements but if you brew your own, this app is a must have!

This app has many good features but it lacks a full list of ingredients, like liquid malt extracts, that are common in a lot of home brewing to fully be useful and worth the money.

Just What I Was Looking For!

This is a fantastic app! It has pretty much everything I need.
