I think the best compliment is when a fellow home brewer asks for your recipe.

I'll need to start withholding information.  usually homebrewers who try my beer already have access to the recipe.

Honestly, that's pointless.  I couldn't care less who has my recipes, because the chances of them exactly replicating my process and results aren't very high.  Usually the only people I know who are worried about sharing recipes are those that think someone else will brew a better beer with them.  ;)

I wasn't referring to you.  I know people that are very protective of their recipes.  One pretty much admitted that was why.

If someone brewered my recipe, and entered it in a comp against mine, and won, I think that would be cool. Of course I would still take all the credit lol

Hasn't happened to me yet.  Closest was a club brew day where me and another couple guys split a wort and dry hopped and fermented with different yeasts.  Mine outscored the other two by a couple points, but none of them won because the comp was when they were a little past their prime.
