Default Brew of the Month?

I was trying to find a recipe for my second brew day (Date TBD) and I was wondering what you all would think about a permanent "Brew of the Month" thread with another archiving the past brews. It would be pretty simple, one recipe, a set of instructions, and then whoever feels like trying to could post their experience with the recipe as their beer advances in stages. I don't know anyone who brews and would love to have some people to share the experience with besides my roommate (The number one taste tester). Whats everyone think?

Off Topic, but I used to live in Narragansett as a kid... And I never could spell it right, haha Small world.

Brew of the month sounds good, although I have a long list of what I want to brew already...

Who would decide the recipe?

If you browse the recipe database you'll probably find comments about the recipe from those who have brewed it.

Could do a sign up list. If someone feels strongly about a recipe they could sign up to write a little thing about, could be more then one I'm just sick at home day dreaming.

I think it s agood idea , I like brewing what others are brewing, to get a feel for the recipe and taste.

I'd like to see something like this and then some kind of swap to see how others did.

I know there is something like this, but it's not every month, so when it comes up I'm never ready to make a brew.

Whats the next step, start a yes no poll and the number of yes would be like signatures on a petition?

Maybe start a poll of styles and or recipes for the first month, then go from there.

I think we should have brew buddies...no seriously!

It would be like a pen pal system but with beer. Two guys agree to brew and send each other a sixer a month. Could be a cool way to get feedback and try other homebrew for those of us without a homebrew club option. Any takers? Thoughts?

I like the buddy system, but maybe take it month to month, brew to brew.

I personally am not able to make a batch every month.
