I don't fully understand it beyond the recursive acronym, which makes me smile. It just provides the DLLs that Microsoft programs require, or something.

Okay, checked out the link ... it's not an emulator ... 

I was told I needed an emulator to run MS stuff and the chap who runs the server + network at work said I could use WINE ... and I have referred to it as such when speaking to the chap and was never corrected.  So it's not an emulator but a compatibility layer that converts Windows API calls into POSIX calls ... well, to be honest, that's hitting a bit above my pay grade, it's all rather academic for me but I'll not call it an emulator in the future.

I use Brewmate, nice and simple and it's Australian so covers BIAB. No idea if it works on Linux sorry.

Well I agree, Brewmate is nice and simple, which is what I need. However running it on Linux less so. Luckily, being retired I have the time, as well as the interest, to get it to run so here it is running on Oracle's VirtualBox. Wine, emulator or not, wouldn't look at it.

Good one ... let us know how the brew turns out.  And agree ... I soon gave up on WINE

The Emulator ... could be a good name for a future brew, some sort of clone.  Stick a robot on the beer label with speech bubble saying "I'll be back". 

Then there could be the "Dubbel Emulator" ...

I really like Brewmate - it works, and sticks to the stuff that matters.

Same here, clib, but it's for us slaves to Microsoft only 😉
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

I do most of my calculations by hand ... I just use Qbrew for the hop additions, it's a bit quicker.

I sometimes use brewgr.com, when I'm away from my PC. Its pretty nifty, very easy to use.

brewgr.com => don't know that one

And there is the trusty brewer's friend site of course.
