    So I was just on my macbook looking around on the app store for homebrewing apps and found none, I use to have a iphone and had a whole bunch of them on there why the heck is there none on a macbook app store, unreal. If anyone knows of a good cheap or free app or software for brewing let me know.

    yeah I use to have that one, but I dont have a iphone anymore, I just found brewgr and signed up, it's super easy to use and seems like it's accurate. Anyone else using Brewgz?

    Mac guy here. I think there are emulators you can download to run ios apps (iphone apps) on your mac. In fact I know there are. That is how a lot of testing of apps happens.

    Beersmith is a great choice.

    Also, just run VMware or Parallels and you can use any PC software at full speed (Linux, Windows, OS2warp, etc.).

    iBrewmaster is available on the Mac as well through the Appstore.

    I loved Homebrew's Formulator until my Mac quit letting it work :-(. Free and I had my system pretty well dialed in.

    Don't worry. Much like mac's, homebrewing has always been cult like and it's definitely becoming more trendy by the day :slight_smile:

    I have an iMac (2007) running Mountain Lion with no issues with the Homebrew Formulator. I agree with your adoration of the program, it performs incredibly well.

    It works on new machines, but if I wipe my OS and use their Migration Assistant it brings enough of my settings (one of which must be corrupted) to make it crash every time I open it. :-/

    Next time I get a new Mac, I'll wipe the previous one and relive my love for the program!
