Do you keep a journal, notebook or store them online? Looking for ideas.

Little bit of everything for me. I usually post them on my blog, but I also use Beersmith and I keep a brewing notebook. I have some favorite food recipes that I've lost, so I'm not taking any chances with beer recipes...redundancy is my friend.

Beersmith.
Beersmith now has a recipe cloud so you can store and share your recipes with others as well as use theirs. There is now a cloud tab in Beersmith 2.1 that has instant access to your recipes online. You can synchronize your recipes between two computers that way.

I keep mine online at Brewmasters Warehouse. I use the brew builder, that way if it turns out great, I can go in and re-order it with one click. If I want to change it, I can. It's a great site and a great store. You can access other's recipes as well. It's pretty coll to find out someone has bought your recipe.

Yeah we have lots and lots of people do exactly what you do. Heck even people that do not shop with us have recipes saved in the brew builder. The public shared recipes are a fraction of the total recipes that are in the database. 3984 shared and total recipes in database >25K

I use Brewtarget, so I just print my recipes directly from there. My mineral additions and mash/decoction details don't really come out in the most logical format, but it does a well enough job so that I can go back to them in the event my computer ever crashes/gets stolen/gets run over by a car and I lose them.

I have BeerSmith, but I've been using TastyBrew and then printing them out and putting into a 3-ring binder. Works for me.

I use BeerSmith but I also keep a journal with hand-written recipes. Gotta have a back up.
