Helping you be a better brewer.

We've all been there. Starting out with a pen, paper and calculator. Maybe you've downloaded a spreadsheet that you use. Wouldn't it be better to have an app that does all that and keeps all your recipes in one place, neatly organized? An app that can synchronize with your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad so you can take your recipes anywhere?

BeerAlchemy is that app.

It's not just for recipes though, it keeps track of your ingredients and orders and can even suggest which of your recipes you could brew today.

Makes Recipe Creation Easy

BeerAlchemy supports extract and all grain brewing (using fly, batch and BIAB sparge methods). Brews are organized as batches under their parent recipe and can then be further arranged into folders.


Extensive Ingredients Database

BeerAlchemy's extensive built databases of ingredients from around the world means you have the building blocks you need to design great recipes. You can now also create ingredient packs of new ingredients to share with others.


Inventory Management

Keep on top of your supplies with BeerAlchemy's inventory. Thoroughly integrated into the app, BeerAlchemy can fit your brews to the ingredients you have in your inventory (for example by adjusting bittering hop additions to reflect the alphas of hops you have). It can also help you order supplies for future recipes by calculating what you don't have and need to order.


Plays Well With Others

BeerAlchemy can import and export Promash and BeerXML files.



Use metric or imperial units freely within the app and BeerAlchemy will automatically convert the value to your chosen unit system.



BeerAlchemy can sync by Wi-Fi with other Macs and also with your iPhone, iPhone and iPad (requires BeerAlchemy Touch 2.0 or later).


Go Shopping

Create orders for missing ingredients and sync the shopping lists to your iOS device to take with you to the store. Mark as delivered and the ingredients get added automatically to the inventory.
