Only for Android – FREE
The free Wort Homebrew Calculator app offers various benefits. These include a recipe calculator, very large ingredient database, and style guidelines (original extract, alcohol content, bitterness) for many beer types. During the brewing process it is possible to add further information about the brew and the app gives insight into the resulting beer.
A special feature of this app is that in the first step it is possible to select the desired ingredients and the beer style for the brew. Afterwards the app calculates the original gravity, the bitterness (IBU), the alcohol content, and even the color of the finished beer. This beer brewing app compares these results to defined style guidelines and thereby lets its users know whether their beer will be too bitter for their selected beer style, for instance.
This feature is helpful as it gives the chance to detect potential mistakes in the selection of ingredients before starting the brewing process.
On the downside, this free brewing app does not offer any recipes. It is also only available for Android users (as of July 2017). Users who wish to access a large recipe database might be more interested in the next app.
