About this app

The Brewing Assistant from is an app for assisting in the brewing of your beer. It helps you build your own recipes by calculating your recipe's IBUs, SRM, OG, FG, and ABV while you build your recipe. Both US customary and metric are supported.

The Brewing Assistant will also synchronize your recipes to the Ale Abacus where you can then edit and delete your recipes or create new recipes. With the ability to sync your recipes to, you can share your recipes with your friends, family, or the entire internet. It also allows you to backup all your recipes and transfer them to the other Android and iOS devices.

To import your recipes into the Brewing Assistant from BeerXML, please import the recipes on Then to get the recipes to the Brewing Assistant, all you have to do is perform a sync. No need to manually enter all your recipes into your phone or tablet.

Once you're ready to brew, the Brewing Assistant will help you with your mash and your boil. The mash reminder will alert you to stir your mash at the interval you set in the Settings. The boil reminder will alert you to add your ingredients at the times you specified in your recipe.

The Brewing Assistant is just the help you need for making your homebrew a success.

Disappointing - don't pay, they'll shaft you After using this for years, my login suddenly stopped working - cutting me off from years of saved recipes. Pretty rubbish that they give you access and then cut you off with no notification. But then, it is a pretty basic app... maybe time to switch to something more modern. With more respect for their PAYING customers!

This was a great app for me, i liked how it would help organize the steps ... but now suddenly stopped working Update. After a couple of uninstalls and reinstalls, It seems to be working better. There may be a glitch in the way it exits or shuts down in relation to my device. Otherwise, i give this a 4 stars

I've been using this FREE brewing app to build recipes since 2011. It's not as accessible as the paid ones but I use it for getting an idea of Specific/Original Gravity(OG/SG). It has a fairly large list of fermentables. When in doubt, add an extra pound or two of base malt or give it a slightly lower % on brewhouse efficiency. This way if you don't extract as much sugars as desired, the losses will be negligible,( barely affecting the desired ABV.) Highly Recommended
