Technology Never Tasted So Good! iBrewMaster 2 is a full functioned application for home brewers to manage the entire brewing process. Not only can you add, edit and manage your own recipes, iBrewMaster 2 comes complete with over 600 pre-installed recipes! Unlike other programs that simply let you manage a beer recipe, iBM2 lets you create a batch of beer from your recipe database, and track its progress every step of the way. Estimated specific original and final gravities, alcohol content, IBU's, color and calories are all automatically calculated! Or, if you prefer, override these values with your own personal calculations and readings. Details and notes as well as actual specific gravities, alcohol content and IBU's are tracked and recorded independently for each recipe as well as each independent batch of beer and stored for later review. iBM2 has been entirely rewritten from the ground up with many new features! - iBM2 is now a Universal App! - All recipe packs now included! - Updated NB recipes! - Unlimited batch timers running simultaneously! - A dozen independent Calculators have been added: - Units of Measure - Beer Color - Bitterness - Carbonation - Attenuation - SG Correction - Refractometer - Evaporation - Pitching Rates - Bottling Calculator - Mash Infusion Calculator - Water Chemistry - Water Profiles - Mash and Equipment Profiles have been reworked - Supports multiple yeasts - Yeast pitching rates - iCalendar implemented - Links to NB recipe .pdf's - Updated ingredients: - 500 Grains & Adjuncts - 138 Hops - 191 Yeasts - 126 Additions - 33 Water Profiles - 16 Mash Profiles - You can now create Recipes from Batches! - Recipes and Batches can now be scaled by Efficiency - Recipes and Batches can be e-mailed as .pdf files The core areas of the program are as follows: * Schedule - all current batch activity in a clean organized format. Quick view reference as to where each batch is in the fermentation process. (Primary, Secondary, Bottle, Aging, etc.) * Recipes - a list of your recipes, with a quick view of any selected recipe. * Batches - a list of your brewing batches, with a quick view of each batch status. * Inventory - create a shopping cart and manage your brewing inventory! * Purchase - direct links to additional recipe packs which you can purchase to help get you started. * Suppliers - a new area for suppliers to advertise and promote special offers to iBrewMaster users! * Share Recipes - create a FREE account to upload and share your recipes with other iBrewMaster users from around the world! * Setup - tons of options to configure and customize iBrewMaster to your preferences!

  • Developer is AWOL

    By bp100a
    This has been my brewing app for nearly 6 years. I love the features and capabilities. It's always had niggling bugs, but you could work around them. For the past 2-3 years the developer hasn't supported the app. There are no content updates on the web site, or any responses from repeated inquiries. It appears this app is at the end of its lifecycle and the developer is just "milking" any residual revenue. Time to move on.
  • I never brew without it!

    By KBuri
    My personal brew buddy. Saved recipes for over 5 years transferee seamlessly to new iPad. The only reason not 5 stars is could not share info to android version. Now android not available. I like the timer for mashing, adding ingredients, and reminders for fermentation.
  • Love the app, but Dev is gone!

    By jhill287
    Love this app, but unfortunately development is no longer. I would actually love to talk to someone at iBrewmaster about purchasing and resuming development. Have tried reaching out to every email I can possibly find with no response, or bounced messages. It’s too bad, because it is by far the best out there.
  • No support, Dead app

    By SC_RJS
    This was by far one of the best brewing apps out there. The ability to track multiple batches, the scheduling, being able to print or email batches or recipes, the backup/restore feature - this app did it all. And then the developer skipped town, never made the fix for Dropbox’s new platform, and stopped updating the app or even providing support to those of us who spent our money. What a shame! Now I’m forced to use another app that has much less. What an absolute waste of all the time and effort that went into making this app. Do not buy.
  • Registration

    By Cmj14225
    I can't even register my info, nothing happens when I press "submit". This kind of stinks considering I have an account already for ibrewmaster 1. There’s no response from the developer. You had no problem taking my money, but there’s no support. I sent emails through the iBrewMaster website and no response. Could be a great app, and was. Now that I can’t access iBrewMaster1, I can no longer search my personal recipes...I have 50+ I made and it’s all gone. I’m insanely disappointed.
  • Needs a new developer

    By DBMoore
    This could easily be the absolute best Brewing app around. All it needs is to be sold to someone who will pay any kind of attention to it. This developer has gone awol, and is does not care about all the people who have spent money on this app. PLEASE! Sell this to someone else, and let them keep it alive. With a new team behind it, it will be better than BeerSmith by far. That’s my plea, pretty sure I just wasted 5 minutes writing it.
  • Third update: Dead App - Apple please remove from the store. DO NOT BUY!

    By NW_Ray
    Two old reviews below here is my third update: Do not waste your money. I apologize to anyone who bought this app based on a previous review. It has been 10 months and no further app updates, as of now dropbox backup/export does not work. This means all your data is at risk and if you did have a backup you can no longer get it back. This is no longer my default app, I have had no choice but to move on. My suggestion is to move on to another app and look for an app that has a consistent record of being updated. Do not waste your money. Second Update, finally got an update and maybe there is hope, please keep them coming. As I said previously this is one of the easiest apps to use that I have found, but there are some slightly irritating bugs such as getting kicked out of a recipe mid edit. Bottom line, great app, but buggy, if it continues to be updated there may be hope. If it helps, this is still my default app for recipe formulation Old review Dead App! Do not waste your money!!! l had IBM1 and loved it, frequent updates, and fixes as needed. Could not wait for IBM2, and updated as soon as the new version came out, at significant expense. New version had cool features, but buggy, as any new app will be. Instead of being refined overtime, the product is stagnant. Updates and fixes are few if any... Truly a pity, this app had potential to be the definitive app for brewing, it was easy to use, and intuitive, but because of neglect it is a waste of money. I say this because after using may other apps, this is the one I found easiest to use. Very disappointed at the result of this franchise. Do not waste your money!
  • Not too good

    By redfishkilla
    When the app works it is great. I have formulated great recipes with the tools. That being said- the app has way too many bugs and crashes consistently. The device to device communication does not work well between iPhone and iPad. At the price point, it is well worth it to explore other options. Impressive features that don’t work without crashing. Developers you need to fix this
  • Obsolete

    By MrDanger
    32 bit only won't run in iOS 11. No reply to numerous developer inquiries. Was a great App while it lasted. Sad to see it go dark. Updated to iOS 11 and the App DOES still work. However, no replies from the Developer about updates.
  • I rather like this app

    By RNAprof
    I have found the iBM2 app to meet my needs well. I especially like the Dropbox backup feature, which allows me to keep copies on both of my devices. However, it now requires an update to keep pace with changes at Dropbox. Please, could you get the Dropbox feature working again soon?!
