Whoops Thanks for the heads up.

The recipes are working just fine, but the brew stash was broken

Give it a try again when you get some free time.

Oh yeah the user_profile stuffz is working again too

I haven't enetered anything yet but it this feature jumps out.

There should be an easy way to copy an existing recipe to a new record.

Looks like a great idea, and a noble cause.

Not to nitpick, but you spell'd beers "bears" in your bottom paragraph under "future plans for this space-". Not a dig - just a friendly correction from a fellow spelling offender!!

I'll be sure to keep an eye on your site.....should be interesting.

Copy a recipe, thats a great idea! Let me think about how I can best implemnt that.

Spelling isnt my strong point, I talk to computers all day FWIW, Ive corrected the silly typo on the homepage Thanks for pointing it out.

Looks nice! Just tooled around a little.

One thing that bugs me is that the header image you have is big - forces me to scroll left and right - at least on my laptop.

It would be nice to have smaller advertising on the recipe page too

But, that's just me - being in the industry, I'm a tad nit-picky

I signed up and am giving it a try.

The one thing that I was not all that fond of, was having to use the drop down's for ammounts. I would rather have a text box that I can enter a number in. It would also be nice, to be able to enter both the AG and FG, you could then just have it figure the ABV from those readings.

Also, I use British Crystal 55L quite a bit, I didn't notice it in the list of grains.

I think you have a good start, I like the "My Stash", it is a unique idea that can set yours apart from other online recipe places. When I get home tonight, I'll check in my "book" that I keep at home, and see what information I track from all my brews, that i do not see listed in the my stash. I like to keep a lot of information on my brew's, and then I can compare consistancy between batches that I use the same recipe on.

Great feedback fellas!

The header is a bit large and I will admit I run my screen resoulution at 1024 or 1280 so its designed for "larger" screen areas. I may move the ads on the recipe page because I think it would open up a bit more realestate there.

Ill add the British Crystal to the list tonight for you.

The issue with freeform entries is consistency. Once you allow users to enter data in a freeform fashion, you lose the ability to know that the data is in a fairly safe state without doing a lot of coding.

A trick i use for drop downs is just tab to them and hit the numeral that Im going to select (ie 2).

Keep the feedback coming

Thats all I ever do, I'm old school, I don't use my mouse.

I just had to do some math for a few things, like .75lbs, I have to think about converting it to 12oz. In all my recipes I use lbs as the grain measurement, even if it is less than 1lbs.

One other thing I noticed, while playing around at work. Would be a FG spot in the "Brew Stash" screen. When I enter something in there, it would be nice to have the FG of that batch with it.
