What is it about?

The details make the difference between an average batch of home brew and a truly excellent brew that is repeatable. This app is a beer recipe calculator, brew session tracker, and brew log - all on your iPhone. This application is capable of syncing with the Brewer's Friend cloud solution (the application works by itself stand alone, but the sync requires a premium account at the site). The level of detail in this add free app is truly impressive. For instance, you can work in either specific gravity or plato, yeast attenuation is automatically calculated, and it will even tell you if the recipe you have chosen matches the style of beer you were going for.
