If it's good, then it's my recipe. If it sucks, then I credit who ever wrote the recipe

When I re-create someone else's recipe, I feel like Weird Al Yankovic.  Kinda like the original, but screwed up
So good once it hits your lips!

Are we just talking about something like what I did with one of mine?

So, if I take a bicycle and start replacing parts one at a time when is it a new bike?

Plans for a bicycle. But anyway, 10 lbs 2row with either Fuggles or Cascades would be two pretty different beers wouldn't they? Was that 50 percent of the recipe(2 ingredients) or less than 1 percent(2 ounces out of 162)?

WWDD? - Denny, how much of your VIP do I need to change to where I don't have to say this is Denny's VIP anymore? What makes your VIP, your VIP?

If I brew something I'm proud of I'll give the recipe away.  First of all no matter what I think I did, somebody probably did it before me.  And even if my recipe is somehow absolutely original I know that nobody will probably ever brew my beer exactly as I did so it won't be the same.  I'm from the Gulf of Mexico coast, my mom has made her gumbo for 65 years now.  She gave her recipe, and even trained us to make it, to me and my sister, but nobody would ever know that those 3 gumbos had any connection.  There's way too much more than just a recipe.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Well, for one thing, the concept....but also the brown malt, the hop combo, and especially the overall flavor.

Denny, since you mentioned Brown malt, is that the same malt that Midwest calls "coffee" malt?  In their description they also say brown malt.  I've never tried that specific malt to get a coffee aroma or flavor so I ordered two pounds of it... kinda wondering if I bought the wrong malt now?

Based on the coffee malt I've used in the past, it's different stuff.

You realize you are just convenient for me to use as an example - nothing personal, right? So you are the original Vanilla Imperial Porter dude? I think that's creditworthy, And FWIW it is already a famous recipe, 14 pages on HBT so I don't guess you could really get away with STEALing this recipe.

So, any of those four things left in the original recipe - gets a *Denny Conn ?

* For the record, I don't even think I'll enter competitions, let alone start a brewery based on other peoples recipes. I just find this subject interesting.
