I'm not faulting anyone for keeping their recipe a secret, but there are polite ways and there are rude ways of saying no.

Although I agree with Denny completely, a recipe is only part of it.

For me recipes are just sugestions (kind of like the traffic signs in NYC).
They give you the idea of where you want to go, but you control the palate of colors (flavors) and decide how you want to express yourself in your creation.  Once you understand what your ingredients do, measurements are more by taste than metrics.

I agree with Denny as well. A great recipe along with a solid process is what makes a great beer.

Yes, but I'm sure you'll agree that a great recipe and a solid process and my system, and the same recipe with a great process on your system will not yield the same beer.  In my experience, recipes always need to be tailored to the system.

Am I allowed to post this here? Hope so......not a shameless plug, just want you guys to see what a cool place it really is. It really is a great place. Just a little bummed at the brewer.

I've been there, She gave ME the recipe...What did you do! ;)

Don't worry about it too much. Some share some don't I don't lose respect for the non-sharers but on the
flip side. The open brewers seem that much cooler to me.

I remember an LHBS that would not share hop types in their recipes. They were pre-measured out and labled
as hop addition #1 #2 and #3. We tried to ask which hops they were and nothing. They did not want to share
even in home brew recipes....Oh well. We don't shop there any more but it's because they shut down. :o

Interestingly enough, Portneuf Brewing is the featured brewer in the latest Beer Advocate magazine.

And I wonder why. We got a place here that could be more customer sympathetic. I'm trying to phase it completely out.
