I have been trying some new things but have been waiting to post the recipe until the brew is done so I can post pic's & impressions is this how you normaly do it?
I really just think it's a matter of not knowing/understanding the policy...there's really no way to "police" it without coming off mean...some have suggested a voting system...some have suggested that 2 or 3 brewers have had to have brewed it before it goes into the database. But there is really no way to do it easily...Exactly. When I get too bored, I spend a bit of time lurking the forum database. The number of untried/untested recipes in there, or those without proper tasting notes is just staggering.
Myself, I'm working on a house pale recipe that features mostly fuggles hops (I know, very out of style, but I loves me some fuggles ) but until I get it all hashed out and have brewed it a few times, I won't put it in the database. That, and I'm planning on entering it in the Kabouter Kup.
Same with me. I've only got one that I've developed and tested enough to meet what I perceive as the criteria for posting in the database. I've made many that turned out excellent, but I've made them just the once. Personally, I can't see how someone who has only been brewing for a year or two could possibly have very many tried recipes in there.If you look at my pull down..you see only one recipe in there (and in the database)
Woot Woot...a Bitter from an English Guy!?!haha! Look at my signature. I put that there about a month ago thinking that my house brew would be in the last throes of tweaking. It's still gonna be a couple more months from now before I will be able to "Declare" it. Even when I am sure I have finalised the recipe I will need to repeat it before I will stand behind it.
Actually, I'm working on a slightly different style from Orfy. He is a thick northerner, I am a softy southerner (No offence, Orfy, ya know what i mean )Yeah, but you going to brew one of GNOME's recipe, or one from Orfy?
