A thought just occurred to me. (I have at least one thought every day. Usually involving an opener and a bottle.) About the data I'm collecting from brewing records. There's nothing after the 1970's.
You know what would be great? To compare 21st century beers with those of the past. See how grists have changed, gravities fluctuated, hopping rates jumped about, and all that crap. Just one problem: getting hold of modern records.
Then I had my thought. It's not a great one. Just the best I could come up with today. Why not ask brewers to send me information about their beers? I'd be happy to publish it anonymised. And not pass on recipes.
Any of you brewers out there fancy sending me details of your brews?
For a mere 25 euros, I'll create a bespoke recipe for any day of the year you like. As well as the recipe, there's a few hundred words of text describing the beer and its historical context and an image of the original brewing record.

Guilt button - brewed my recipe commercially? pay me 100 euros. It really is the least you can do.
