Early Release Ended – Subscriptions Available

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

The Early Release period is complete. The Brewer’s Friend subscription based service is now live.

Brewer’s Friend saves you time, helps your brewing go more smoothly, and leads to better home brewed beer.

The price is $9.99 per year for Premium Members, or $17.99 for two years. We offer an unlimited duration trial so new users can get to know us over their next few batches. The blog, forum, calculators and brew sheets continue to be free. However, going past more than five recipes or five brew sessions will require a Premium Membership. As part of the conversion, everyone who signed up previously now has a Trial Membership.

More Details Here:


To Our Early Release Members:

To say thank you to members who signed up during the early release, for each month you participated in the early release you will be granted an extra month of subscription time when you purchase. Early release users also have the option of buying an exclusive, limited quantity, Lifetime Membership.

This offer is only valid until August, 31st, 2012.

If you decide not to purchase, you may continue to edit all your existing recipes and brew sessions, even if you had more than five.

The Brewer’s Friend team would like to thank you for the feedback, praise, and the beer recipes you shared!

How to purchase:

Login, or signup first, then look for the upgrade button in the upper right hand corner.


Major feature upgrade planned for the next release:

  • The brew timer will keep ticking even if you your computer goes to sleep or you happen to change pages during your brew. (This is driving some of us at Brewer’s Friend a little nuts and we really want to fix this soon.)


By the way, profile pictures are looking great on the recipes and the search page. Here are a few collages we made, fun times!

  2. I am glad to see you guys are growing. Your site has been a valuable tool for me and all of my fellow brewers. Keep up the great work and I look forward to using this tool for years to come.

  3. Love the website but really look forward to an app release that will retain my recipes, brew sessions, and brew day checklist (that can be checked off within the app). Keep up the great work.
