Recipe Site Showdown Part 1: The Setup

Alright, after much deliberation, I’ve decided to finally suss out which of the many homebrew recipe creation/sharing sites out there is right for me. The upside? You all get to reap the benefits of my not-so-hard work.

If we didn’t draw the line somewhere, we’d be reviewing what’d feel like half the internet. As a result, I’m not even considering sites that are primarily forums (HomebrewTalk, TastyBrew, etc), or those lacking advanced recipe creation functionality (like HomeBrewDigest Recipator, beerrecipes.org, Homebrew Recipe Exchange, & brew365). It’s not that these aren’t extremely useful, only that they’re not what I’m looking for.

Additionally, I’m not borrowing an iPad, & paying $14.99 (or even $0.99) to test any apps, if you want a rundown on those, check out this post over at homebrewfinds. Same with android. We’re laser focused on free web-based recipe creation & sharing.

The Contenders

And with that goal in mind, let’s assemble our competitors!
