Seriously. If ppl want the recipes, buy the book. Ive used my copy more than any other brewing book I own. Jamil and John spent a ton of time writing it and have selflessly given back to the brewing community for years. What better way to say thank you than buying their great book and resource?

This is obviously just my opinion, so do what you will. I personally don't publicly share these recipes since you can either 1) buy the book or 2) listen to the podcast.

Cheers!

I agree with the three posts above mine, but I have a unique twist.

I bought the book *because* this thread exists. Oh, I might have purchased it eventually anyhow, but I jumped over to Amazon and bought it right away because I saw this information. The promotion has to be worth something too.

You just saved me a hell of a lot of typing!

I would pull them off the internet now as a showing of good faith and then meet to see if there is a possible solution that works for everyone.

1. Remove them
2. Discuss some kind of deal if you want to pursue
3. Change them all slightly - rename them and be forever damned by the beer gods.

+1 to remove them

And a suggestion to delete the nice lady's contact info from your post as well.

Why do you even have to think about this? He's trying to be a nice guy about it. He could easily have the lawyers shove it up your wazoo! Remove the thread then go talk to the guy.

I find it puzzling that anyone could respond to this request with the thought "What should I do?".

If I were Kristi and I learned of your response I'd revoke the civil invitation and file the civil suit.

My first thought would be "Don't trust anyone on the Interweb." Look up Brewers Publications and make sure they have someone named Kristi in the company. Get her email address and phone number from the company, and verify that she sent the message.

Paranoid? Maybe. But you wouldn't be the first to be scammed in such a way.

Well lawyers are expensive, even for businesses. It is much easier to reach out the way that she did and solve the problem than to get into the legal process. She did it right.

Plus, her whole customer base is the brewing community. It would be a poor tactical decision to get a reputation as the publisher who sues brewers without making a polite request first.

As I read her letter, I see it a a classy request. Polite, friendly, and non-confrontational. Smart business woman.
