Easy to use

I don’t normally write reviews, but this app is worth all 5 stars. Highly recommend.

Needs improvement

First let me say the layout of this app is the best I have ever seen. It is very easy to use and quite fun building a recipe in here. This however is were the positives stop. This app is lacking on misc adjuncts (at this point it only includes salts and T-tabs). The price is quite high ($30/yr) for what you get. You can’t add a yeast starter to your recipe.

For the money I would recommend beersmith. But I will keep my eye on this app because it does show promise and if it improves I will change my rating.

Response to developer:
I truly want to love this app and if it were free or even $20 for a one time purchase I would have given it as least another star. If you keep up dating it (which it looks like you are), I will gladly revise my review. Best of luck and I’ll be watching your progress.

Update to previous review
I have been watching this app closely and I have to say the developers I truly working hard to make this a great app. It seems as though every week or so new things are added. I will change my review from 2 to 4 stars. Good work

I would like to see a few more advance inputs such as water chemistry, and tracking brew session data.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the review and feedback! I am really glad you found Simple Brew easy to use. I just added 60+ misc. additions that are now available and plan to add more. There are currently plans to allow custom ingredients and yeast starters in a future update coming soon!

Great UI, lacking in features.

Let me preface this with this being BY FAR the prettiest brewing app out there. The colors are nice, the navigation makes sense, it’s extremely usable.

That being said here are the downsides:
- No custom fermentables or data
- No way to export or print recipes
- No water profile adjustment or details (ph anything...) this is the most important part of brewing and is skipped over constantly.
- No desktop or web interface (hopefully MacOS catalyst will make that easier but remains to be seen).
- Missing a lot of controls in the profile to get things dialed in correctly
- Missing a lot of feature to be $20/year.

Could be GREAT, especially if they release a roadmap for improvements I’d gladly continue paying for it. The best UI bar-none. Needs more features.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so so much for supporting us and such a detailed review. Our newest update includes custom fermentables (hops and yeast are soon to come). The water chemistry feature has been in design and will be released once we get it exactly right. Water is complex and our mission is to make water adjustments as simple as everything else in the app. We still have a lot to improve but the kind words about our focus on usability and aesthetic are very motivating! I am looking into a public roadmap now. Please reach out to as your feedback is greatly appreciated!
