AHA event form???
« on: July 17, 2011, 06:29:34 AM »
Hi,

We're looking at entering an AHA event but the form is asking for specific recipe information. Is this mandatory?

thanks,

Unless it's the National Homebrew comp., which is over for the year, there are no AHA beer comps.  If someone is asking for a recipe, it's specific to that particular comp.

Why give your recipe?

thanks,

I have no idea, but that's a requirement of that particular comp., not the AHA or BJCP.  You need to ask the people running that comp.  OTOH, why not give the recipe?

OK, whatever you want.  I freely give out my recipes.  It's a hobby and I'll help out others of I can.  Even if someone brews the same recipe, it's unlikely the beer will turn out exactly the same.

I give out my recipes without hesitation.

Once you know that making a beer depends on the ingredient list, procedures, and equipment, it is hard to fathom that someone will make the same exact beer.   The pros often give out the recipes.  Here is an example.

The BOS prize is having the beer brewed, they probably need a recipe to do that.

Maybe if you contact them and agree to be ineligible to win, they would let you keep their recipe. That said, there are a lot of competitions out there. This seems like a pretty small one. I assume the point of entering it is to win? Pick one with a prize you are willing to win.

Denny is one that has "Good Karma" accumulated from his recipes.  Think about it, if it is a good recipe, others should have the pleasure of making something similar, if you think it is good.,

Have you ever used someone's recipe? 

To me this is a big part of the give back from when I got started.

But it is your recipe and your choice.

It is not hard or expensive to copyright a recipe if you are really concerned. it costs I think about 20 bucks and maybe an hour of your time to fill out the paperwork with the US copyright office and you get a nifty little certificate. If you collect all your recipes you can copyright a recipe book even. But as others have said...why not

**EDIT** also it looks like if you  want to enter the peoples choice competition recipe is not required

You can't protect a recipe via copyright - only it's presentation.

Just because you have to submit a recipe doesn't mean it has to be the recipe.  Who's to know, except you?

But if the prize is to have your beer brewed, what good would it do to submit a different recipe?
