🍺 Top-down Brew: Beer Engine and FlexStyle

The Beer Engine 2024

The Beer Engine is a free, open-source brewing software. It has greater flexibility than simple printed descriptions like 10 pounds of malt and one ounce of hops. The flexibility comes from percentage-driven calculations rather than physical weights and volumes. The calculations can be easily modified to meet the brewer's needs for volume, preferred units, and ingredient variations.

FlexStyle Calculators

These calculators make it easy to brew an all-grain beer that fits a particular style. These meta-recipes are based upon BJCP style definitions, quantitative analysis from beer-analytics.com, and style guidelines written by experts. FlexStyle is a combination of "flexible" and "style."

Make Your Own

People with minimal HTML skills can easily make their own recipes with this software. The default values in the fields can be modified to make sharing beer recipes with other homebrewers. The Creative Commons license allows for free sharing. Attribution to this web site is appreciated.
