Bob, that recipe was added a long time ago, and I forgot to move it after we agreed that only tried and true recipes should be in the database. It's moved now. To reiterate: if there's a questionable recipe in the database, send one of us a PM.

No worries, Yuri, and I'm very sorry it appears I rolled you under the bus. It was unintentional, I assure you. It was only intended as an illustration, and in hindsight it was perhaps poorly chosen. Still, it illustrates the point.

Again, I have nothing but admiration for you mods. You do a job I neither need nor want.

Perhaps a sticky in the Recipes section is in order, to avoid further confusion (and embarrassment for me! ). If someone would let me know the exact details, I'll gladly write out the agreement/'rules' so that someone can sticky it.

Trying to be proactive,

Bob

Thank you for the offer! One of the issues is the format of the database- we just can't make a sticky in it. Or rather, if we can I'm not smart enough to figure out how! I'll see if there is a way to make a general notice about it.

We've been pretty proactive at removing any untested or unproven recipes, and I've especially done many of them in the mead and cider areas. We've even added a "tasting notes" requirement. In fact, very recently, I was harassed and called names by someone who didn't fill in the tasting notes and I questioned him on the results. When he said he hadn't made it yet, I told him I was moving it to the "recipes" forum for feedback. He told me he was sick of me "busting his balls" and let loose quite a bit of verbal abuse. Since very few of the words were spelled correctly, it didn't bother me all that much.

Anyway, please let us know of any we've missed- this is really important and we could use the help!

Hmmmm, I dunno if my palate is sophisticated enough to fill out any taste notes. Is there a section in there that just says, it's good, or "it sucks"?

Tasting notes can be as simple as- yum, good beer. Just as long as you document that this beer has been sampled! "don't know, not done yet" is a definite no-go.

So you just put every one of your recipes in there? That isn't the intention of the database.

I have to get ProMash loaded on my new netbook... then I will save them all there.

I used to use another brewing software, had some of them saved there, but had no ability to keep inventory, now I am using ProMash and have to get them all entered there.
