When posting a recipe to the database please try and follow the simple guidelines listed below. This will help ensure that the HomebrewTalk.com recipe database is a valuable resource for brewers containing only quality, proven recipes. It must include complete tasting notes and be repeatable. Brewing it more than once before posting in the database should be the norm, but in the cases of long-aged beer like lambics it might not be possible.
If you want to post a recipe that has not yet been brewed or you are seeking help, please use the Recipes/Ingredients forum.
- Complete as many fields as you can. Recipes with more detail will be easier for others to brew.
- Provide as much information as you can. If it is an all-grain recipe, be sure to include all mash steps and temperatures.
- A picture is worth 1000 words. This isn't required, but if you can, post a picture of your beer.
- Brewing software files. Also not required, however you can attach a file from your favourite software program to the recipe. This makes it easier for fellow brewers to obtain your recipe. If possible try and post in BeerXML format as not everyone has the same software.
If you see any recipes that have been posted that do not meet the criteria above, please PM a mod or use the report post button
