Great site with lots of useful comments. I’d love to use the Kit & Extract Beer Designer spreadsheet but the forum is no longer accepting registrations. Any chance you could either email it to me or perhaps post it here?
The AHB forum is accepting registrations but you have to send an email to the forum administrator by clicking on the link ‘Contact the forums administrator’.
But I’ll email it to you anyway.
