the recipator is cool, but it has a few issues.

ANYONE can add to it. even someone who has never actually brewed a batch of beer. Worse... people canleave bad instructions (like... "Boil the grains for 3 hours in battery acid")

Also, few people actually comment on the taste of the final product. Those that do.... well... can you trust them? It's THEIR beer, and they'll probably think it was excellent, even if it was a little off.

But, I actually do post my recipes on there. Mostly because it's handy to use their spreadsheet when putting a recipe together to see what the color, IBUs and ABV will come out like. Once you have all the info in there, you might as well go ahead and post it to the database, right??? Even if you never brew it.

At the moment I only brew 2 imperial gallon (2.4 US gal) batches. I haven't got the implements or the space to brew any more. I've only got 4 one gallon carboys, a 2 gallon bucket and a 2.5 gallon brew kettle. I just scale everything down but I still use a whole pack of yeast per brew.
