Pros: Easy to understand. Communicates complex issues effectively and easily. Customer support receptive to suggested improvement and troubleshooting. It's free to use.

Cons: Sometimes restrictive, would like a great ability to customize to our needs (create new icons, better labelling solutions, more room for notes, better designation of brands beyond the color, etc)

- Still seems unfinished and buggy - sometimes resulting in inability to use software.

Pros: Makes scheduling complicated fermentation and conditioning profiles easy.

Makes it more difficult to make mistakes.

Cons: It doesn't print. You can only create one activity per day per beer.

Overall: This replaced Excel spreadsheets. Now, I make fewer mistakes and create the schedule faster.

Thank you for the review, Dean. The optional Pro version that will be released in the coming months will have the option to print the dashboard as well as various other reports. We're working on a solution for the multiple activities per day. Cheers!

Pros: With the free price tag this is tough to beat in regards to brewhouse production planning. Aesthetically pleasing and fairly intuitive layout. There is decent amount flexibility and expansion to adapt to most small-moderate size brewing operations. Once you get a hang of user interface workflow becomes increasingly easier.

Cons: Seems to still be in Beta phase. A few operation glitches (occasionally planned brewing cycles wont save). On the fly changes due to brewing snafus or irregularities seem cumbersome to accomodate. No integration with other management tools (that I can see)

Overall: A good intro to basic brewery production planning with plenty of options for the small brewer but more complex and complicated brewhouse-ops requiring a higher level of "work-arounds" to accommodate planning.

Thank you for your review, Seth. We are continuing to develop our pro version that will include more features and eventually integration with other systems and tools. We always welcome any feedback or suggestions that will help inform the best way to implement these features.

We can also schedule a video call any time to discuss a specific scenario you're finding cumbersome to accommodate.

Please reach out to support@brewplanner.com anytime with questions or feedback. Cheers!
