official "tried and proven" recipe thread
 
thought it might be a good idea to have a thread of "tried and true" recipes posted in it. i already know some of them that will be posted

It's an idea. Personally I prefer just to look at the recipes themselves and any associated comments.

HBT's recipe database should only contain proven recipes.

The recipe database is like a Wiki in that anyone can post a recipe in there. Since there's no moderation process, no vetting process for the entry, you use any recipe at your own risk.

That said, if you follow threads in the recipes section, you can kind of get an idea of what's been around. If there's lots of communication in a recipe thread, chances are the recipe is worth a closer look.

Cheers,

Bob

The database is supposed to have only proven recipes. If you find one lacking "tasting notes" or the results, let a mod know so they can be removed.

Personally I don't agree, but let's say for a minute that you are right. So what makes you think your thread is going to be more successful?

Just stick with the database; that's what it is for.

Good heavens. There's heaps! In fact, on a goof I went into the very first category and found a recipe thread which, while it contained results, the results were poor. And the recipe was posted months before it was brewed the first time. Even more unfortunate, it was a moderator who started the thread.

Now, please don't get me wrong, Yoop: I'm not bitching at all. All you mods do far, far more work here at HBT than I'd care to take on. No one thanks you enough, so "Thank you!"

All I'm saying is that there seems to be no clearly-stated policy about entering recipes in the database beyond a sort of gentleman's agreement. That can have an adverse impact on the perceived reliability of the entire entity. You dig? Me, I think I know how to sift through the chaff and get the wheat. Others might not.
