Lately I’ve been using brewing software less and less. Sure, it makes recipe formulation ‘simple’. But you tend to forget (or perhaps your never knew?) how to calculate a grain bill from scratch.
Remember when you were in elementary school math class?
Did your teacher allow you to use a calculator before you could do the calculations by hand? I bet she didn’t…
The reason for this is simple: a calculator can do a calculation for you, but you’ll never really understand why it took 2, added 2 and came out with 4.
Brewing software is exactly the same.
