I put in a recipe I got online. The IBUs and Abv are different from the online recipe. Both softwares come up with different numbers. Does anyone know a good free software for home brewing. I am most happy with beertarget so far. I would hope it has reliable numbers.

A late response to this thread, but take note if the AA% for the hops in your recipe are both the same in each software. If both software programs use a different AA% for the hops in your recipe, the IBUs will not be the same. You'll also need to do a final adjustment in software based on the actual AA% of the hops that you actually have. :)

I have 2 different AA% of german magnum hops and have to adjust them in my software all the time. Maybe buy in bulk?
