comment Homebrew Calendar/Planning Software/Site?
Indeed, nothing pre-made has materialized, so I'm tackling creating exactly what I need from scratch. It'll be made available as a free web app that integrates with your existing Google Calendar in the near future.

comment Beer calculators and batch/boil size with late fermentable additions
It has always been my understanding that utilization is heavily influenced by boil volume, and much less so by gravity. Utilization improves (with diminishing returns of course) as volume increases. Pro brewers use less hops by ratio than we do to achieve the same relative IBU concentrations in production-scale batches.

comment What are my options for brewing software?
Another vote for BeerTools Pro. I run it on a mac, and switched to it after using BeerSmith previously. I find it to be very accurate for my process, and provides all the tools I need.
