Default recipe recommendation by inventory?

Does anyone know if there is a site that will list recipes by your current inventory.

Example: I input that I have cascade, simcoe and crystal 60. It locates a match or partial match.

I have never heard of such and doubt there is anything like that. There are just so many variables that it would make designing a program like that a nightmare.

I would think that a straight ingredient to recipe pull would be easy. The partial matching might be somewhat difficult. I'm honestly surprised that this isn't available anywhere.

There is a point where you don't need a "recipe" any more and you just say to yourself lets give this a try.

I'm already at that point, however, I like the option of seeing what has already been done. Think of it as breaking a trail in the woods vs finding a game path. It looks like brew toad, aka hopville has something similar. Closest that I've seen so far.

Why don't you throw up some of your favorite ingredients in stock- people around here love making up recipes.

Google: "cascade, simcoe and crystal 60 site:homebrewtalk.com"
Googling all sites should get you more.

I got this post, and several recipes.

I appreciate the responses, but I'm not sure that I'm conveying the idea well. Essentially, this would be a site or stand alone program that would allow for multiple variable searches based on your current inventory. For example, you have 6 types of hops, 4 types of grain and 1 type of yeast. This search would allow you to see recipes based on any or all of those.

Recipe 1: Hops 1 & 3, Grain 1, Yeast 1
Recipe 2: Hops 5, Grain 2 & 4, Different yeast (notes that it is not in inventory)
Recipe 3: Hops 2 & 4, Grain 1 & 3 (notes that you do not have sufficient quantity in stock), Yeast 1

This would allow brewers who are not comfortable with recipe formulation to buy bulk ingredients and locate recipes or form a new recipe based on similar results.

Disclaimer: I do buy bulk and formulate most of my own recipes. I thought this would be a handy tool.

I looked around for something similar before and also was not able to come up ith anything...ended up just throwing all my ingredients together and came up with a very good beer!

I think it would be a really cool program/website if someone ever created it!
