    Ok be kind im not exactly a genius on a computer.
    Most of the apps I've looked at are either crap or well over the top for what i want to achieve.
    Im doing biab all i really want ease of being able to put in a recipe with grains bill hops yeast etc and give me water volumes boil time etc.
    WTF ever happened to Brewmate that was all i ever needed alas with everything these days we gotta make stuff better ,faster ,complex and to my mind just effn difficult.
    Appreciate your suggestions chaps.

    You can build a recipe in imperial or metric with BrewersFriend, no problem. Chuck in your volumes, malts, hops and yeast and boom, recipe done. Just because you do it on a computer doesn't make it complicated, it would be harder to do it with paper and a pen..
