Greetings all, and welcome!
I'm happy to report that BeerMath has returned, but in a significantly different form. The original BeerMath site was a collection of brewing calculators, free for all to use. I preferred to present both form and function, so the site was developed with Flash. This allowed me to make the front end look sharp, and the Actionscript behind the scenes gave me a great degree of flexibility in coding the calculators. As smartphones an tablets became more ubiquitous, the site became less and less functional to mobile users - first iOS, and then Android. As of December 31, 2020, Flash was officially abandoned by Adobe.

I'm not a coder by trade, so learning a new set of languages to revamp the functionality of the original site wasn't in the cards. A friend suggested that I use the URL to provide brewers with a forum to discuss share their favorite brewing calculators. So here it is! I'm admittedly a true noob when it come to moderating this type of thing. I'll get a few threads started, and hopefully you all can help build the base of knowledge and discussion.
