Welcome to StrangeBrew brewing software, a powerful and easy to
use recipe database for all types of homebrewer.
Note: StrangeBrew for Windows is no longer in active development, but I'm still supporting it. Please
contact me with any questions. Current users can still get a free key if they need to re-install the software
on a new machine. Meanwhile, I've been working on a new on-line version of StrangeBrew, please
check it out.

StrangeBrew 1.7 was reviewed in the Jan/Feb 2003 issue of Zymurgy
magazine, and is generating a great response! Many thanks to those
