  1. hello, when i search at Market the home brewer calculator do not finded, can you send to me the install file for try this software? thanks


  2. I had this problem. It turned out it was a problem with my phone (htc hero on tmobile aka g2touch). I had to re-install the atest update and now I can see all apps.

    Hope that helps.

  3. Any way to add in a calculator for brix to specific gravity? Otherwise the tool is very helpful.

  4. I heard that you may be working on a recipe manager program for Android. I use BrewAlchemy on my Mac, which currently syncs with the iPhone/iTouch. If there's any way you could develop something like that, which syncs the desktop program with Android. I would be very interested.

  5. I was working on a recipe manager for Android, however, I spoke with the developer of Brewzor and he will be releasing a full recipe manager as well for free. He also will have the ability to import and export from Xml, I'm hopeful that BeerAlchemy importing will be available as well. If I find the time before Brewzor's new version is released, I will let you know. Thanks.
