Is there any difference between "GOLD" and the basic members

Postby beaufort » Thu Apr 04, 2002 11:37 am

I have been using beertools for awhile now. I love the basic freebie version. Does anyone have any comments about the upgraded version? I'm trying to decide whether or not it's worth the $ or not. (or are all you freebies like

Go Gold

Quite a while ago I realized how cool BeerTools is and how useful it has become to my brewing.
When Jeff began offering the Gold membership I immediately paid for it; not so much for the added features (although I DO use all my recipe slots), but just out of gratitude for bringing such a great website to us brewers.
If you surf the other homebrew or recipe sites out there you know how cool BeerTools is; and the fact that it is still evolving, not some stagnant website with a database, is awesome and deserving of my support.
That's just my 2 cents.

its only $15 for a whole year and I think it is worth it. There are some more tools that you get and some other things. (secret stuff...)

"Gold" Rules

Postby andytv » Thu Apr 04, 2002 6:25 pm

I switched to gold some time ago and have not regretted it. Although I can't remember what features the "free" tools have, with the upgrade you can; 1) Load any recipe from the database into the recipe calculator and modify as desired. 2)Keep a stash of your personal recipes in your own little library 3) Scale, view characteristics, and so forth whilst building the recipes instead of having to reload the page 4) Maintain inventory control(I don't use, but it is a neat feature. my club uses a spreadsheet for Inv ctrl with financials tied in, would be glad to share it with whoever could use it). Final reason, for around a buck a month, you can show your support fot the finest homebrewing site on the web!
