I am a new homebrewer and am starting to try to formulate my own recipies (extract with steeped grains). How important is it that the recipes I come up with end up falling within an established style (i.e., matches OG, FG, IBU, ABV, and color)? I put some the the recipes I was considering into a recipe calculator website and it did not fit any style. I had to tweak it to get it to fit as a Saison and another to fit as a California Common Beer.
