I look at the BJCP list to see what ingredients might go into a style, look at ABV and IBU and then w/BeerSmith design my own brews. I also look at Designing Great Beers" to see what grains might be used. But the amounts are all mine.
Oh, I did use a recipe for the S.N. Torpedo Clone. That's why I didn't give it my own name.
