to me, "tried and proven" recipes are a lot different then "good" recipes. I "tried and proven" recipe to me is one that been brewed by many people, and the majority of the reviews are mostly raves. the recipes appeals to most people. some that come to mind are BMs centential blonde, applewiezen, and eds haus ale. i think if the recipe database only included tried and proven recipes, there wouldent be many at all.

A good recipe to me, is just a recipe that the brewer enjoys. of course everyones tastes and prefrences can vary greatly, so what might be great to someone, can be bad to another.

man has this thread got off topic

Sorry to drag you off topic so far, bkov! It's just that at least once a week we have the same "post your best recipes" or "post the winners here" threads and the whole point of the database is to provide such a resource. We have an old sticky with links to some of the "famous" ones, which can be updated if someone wants to add to it.

We have a "rating" system for the recipes, with stars, and the "prost" button as well. We're doing the best we can to keep the database full of only tested and proven recipes. I don't know of any other way to accomplish it.

Since going AG, I've done nothing other than brew bitter. Tweaking it here, tweaking it there. Playing with this, playing with that......Until I get exactly what I want and repeated the brew successfully there is no way in hell i am posting it anywhere other than a thread that makes it quite clear that it is an experiment or just the latest attempt. I would have thought everyone else would be the same way when posting their babies on the interwebz.

Any recipe that I've looked at for pointers, I have always qualified by looking at the responses before trying any aspect of them. You just gotta be careful when grabbing other peoples recipes, just as you would be careful when grabbing a stranger's naughty bits.

Agree 100%. I have 2 recipies that I have brewed over and over, tweaking slightly here and there until I come up with something consisitant and awesome. 1 of them is almost ready, but I am waiting to taste the last batch I made even though I have had this final recipie for 3 batches and they have all been great.

I know this is what we should all do before posting recipies to the database, but there are a few in there that have ahhhh... less effort behind them. Perhaps this thread coming up will be the reminder we need to minimize those postings for awhile at least

I have more than my fair share...but I think they all have supporting background and tasting notes. I think. I'll have to go through and double check.

For me what makes the recipe database enjoyable are the write ups and comments about a recipe, more so than just reviewing gravities, grists and hop additions.

If someone is just posting the bare bones ingredients and not going to the trouble of offering some commentary...pass...
