yeah you'll want to make sure you offset the calender to give plenty of time to let the beers mature. don't make a november beer IN november... make it in july

I have no input, as I haven't even brewed one beer yet, but I love this idea! I think it would great, and a pictures of tasty pint's are never a bad thing!

good point on the offsetting of months. didnt think about that. thanks.

i was thinking of giving any one that submitted a recipe (along with their permission to print it ) a calendar at cost if they wanted it.

I'd probably buy a calendar like that. It should have 2 recipes per month, so you either choose one, or brew twice. I usually brew 2 or 3 times per month. Also, if the recipes are solid, I would want to reuse the calendar, at least as a style reference multiple years so it shouldn't be tied to a specific year. A section on each mont for recipe notes and desired tweaks would be useful too.

There's a book called "A Year of Beer." It might be helpful.

ok here is the schedule i made from homebrewer99's post. i tried to plug as many in as i could that would be ready at the right time of year with the right amount of time in the bottle. basically you brew two batches and drink two batches every month once you are in the cycle. any suggestions for ones that should be moved or completely taken out would really be appreciated. hopefully i will get this thing done by christmas. thanks guys!



EDIT: for each month the brewing would be done at the beginning of the month and the drinking towards the end.
