lupy:
If I take someone else's a recipe and tweak it by changing the hop schedule or the yeast type or something else, could I ethically claim it as MY recipe? How much do I need to change it to claim it as mine.

Denny says its yours once you use your water.

I would add that the original brewer deserves some mention though.

I think, if you use someone else's recipe - even in part - you should give them credit at least in part. But, as a professional graphic designer and artist it is a well known industry inside saying that "Good artist innovate .... great artists steal!" ;)

hopfenundmalz:
If you take a recipe and brew it with your water, on your system, with your procedures, then it is a different beer.  Good form and karma to credit the inspiration.

Beertracker:
Agreed! +1 on the beer/homebrew karma.  :)
