Default Posting Recipes

I have looked over a number of recipes and I have noticed that some of them have been posted by people that either are in the process of brewing or are in secondary. Often these recipes have a last thread of, "How is this brew going?"

I am wondering if it would not be better for the new guys as well as the rest, if we could start the thread off with the success or failure of the beer/cider/wine. Or possibly not post the bill until it is known whether it is a keeper or dumper.

OR....I could just be talking out of my ass.






I've had a few.

see when they were posted and PM the brewer for details (if they're finished and you're curious)

i personally wouldn't put it in the database if it wasn't a good beer

Ideally, you shouldn't post a recipe unless you've brewed it and can wholeheartedly recommend it to a fellow brewer - meaning that you've brewed it, consumed it, and hopefully shared it. The database is a lot more useful if the focus is on quality, not quantity.

This is exactly why I'm saving my Pancake Porter Recipe for next month....or maybe not if it sucks.

I agree. I would pretty much stop using the database if I brew totally craptastic beers out of it.

There's a REASON I don't have any in there. I've not perfected them yet... But it's my next goal.

Agreed. I have seen recipes on other sites where people posted recipes while brewing, and then the brew got infected. Why post if you're not sure about it?

I think we've posted some "how's this look fellas" in this recipes section, but all recipes in the database (under our avatars) are supposed to be tried and true recipes. At least, mine are! The mediocre ones I'll just keep to myself.

This seems to be a general problem with recipes on the internet.

Maybe we should request that a picture of the finished beer is posted as well. Though a picture may not tell much about a beer, it is one of the few things that can actually be shared over the net.

I agree, also many styles are empty or lacking. Try finding a marzen(at least there were none when I looked a couple of weeks ago)

Can mods clean it up at all? It is hard to use. Or else there is just not much there. Maybe we should allow links to other sites for recipes? Just a thought.

With all of the experience and knowledge here, we can do better.

I never post a recipe until I have made it more than once and know for sure it is good (hence I don't have very many recipes in the database).
