Has anybody ever brew something using the golden ratio?

No, but the ratio of the circumference to diameter of my kettle is and always has been 3.14.

No but my girlfriend uses it all the time in her art work. https://www.google.com/search?q=tabula+mundi&rls=com.microsoft:en-US:IE-SearchBox&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0CCsQsARqFQoTCK-Rmt_K7McCFYkWPgodTy4O8w&biw=1280&bih=814

 What would you use it for in brewing? Malt to malt. Malt to water?

On my kettle it a bit closer to 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067982148086513282306647093844609550582231725359408128 but then I got tired and figured it was close enough.   ;D

I would be interested to know what ingredients you would relate to each other for this type of recipe.  It might be fun, I'm just not seeing an easy correlation this early.

For a golden ratio beer use:

61.8% grain 1
38.2% grain 2

Same for hops.

6.18# Pils (A)
3.82# Munich (B)

6.18/3.82= 1.618 = A/B
10/6.18=1.618 = A+B/A

Yep. I think beers based on math should be German ;)
