Beersmith 2 is a popular home brewing software that helps you design and brew your own beer recipes. It has many features such as tabbed browsing, cloud integration, mobile support, and more[^1^]. However, to use Beersmith 2, you need to activate it with a valid key that you can purchase from the official website[^1^].
In this article, we will show you how to activate Beersmith 2 Version 2.0 using the activation code that you downloaded as a .rar file. A .rar file is a compressed archive that contains one or more files inside it. You need to extract the files from the .rar file before you can use them.
Step 1: Download and install a .rar extractor
To extract the files from the .rar file, you need a software that can handle .rar files. There are many free and paid options available online, such as WinRAR, 7-Zip, PeaZip, etc. You can choose any one that suits your preference and operating system. For this example, we will use WinRAR as our .rar extractor.
To download and install WinRAR, follow these steps:
Go to https://www.win-rar.com/download.html and click on the download button for your operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.).
Save the file to your computer and run it to start the installation process.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.
Restart your computer if prompted.
Step 2: Extract the files from the .rar file
Once you have installed WinRAR, you can extract the files from the .rar file that contains the activation code for Beersmith 2 Version 2.0. To do this, follow these steps:
Locate the .rar file on your computer. It should have a name like \"Beersmith 2 Version 2.0. Activation Code.rar\".
Right-click on the .rar file and select \"Extract Here\" from the menu. This will create a folder with the same name as the .rar file in the same location.
Open the folder and look for a file named \"Beersmith 2 Version 2.0. Activation Code.txt\". This is the file that contains your activation code.
Double-click on the file to open it with a text editor such as Notepad or WordPad.
Copy the activation code from the file and save it somewhere safe. You will need it in the next step.
Step 3: Activate Beersmith 2 Version 2.0
Now that you have extracted and copied your activation code, you can use it to activate Beersmith 2 Version 2.0 on your computer. To do this, follow these steps:
Run Beersmith 2 Version 2.0 on your computer. If you don't have it installed yet, you can download it from https://beersmith.com/beersmith2/ and follow the installation instructions[^1^].
When you run Beersmith 2 for the first time, you will see a window that asks you to enter your activation key or start a free trial. Click on \"Enter Activation Key\".
Paste your activation code that you copied from the .txt file into the box and click on \"Activate\".
