    We're planning a new feature in our newsletter. We want to have a great recipe featured every month, called "Beer of the Month". Submit a link to your shared recipe in this thread, and one winner will be chosen every month. There are no real prizes, except for our gratitude and adoration. :) Oh, and your name mentioned as a SuperBrewer in the next newsletter.

    Currently, we're looking for recipes for January, and the style will be Spring Beers. From maibock to cream ale and beyond, everyone is welcome to give us your idea of your perfect spring beer.

    No one? No one at all?

    Ok, ok. We'll offer a prize. Like a year premium membership to the winner, if we get more than 20 entries? Or one of our apps (iPhone or Android) for free if you win?

    Nominate one of the recipes and see if you're a winner!

    Do you have a jalapeno cream ale? A maibock? How about a fantastic pale ale? Do you have a secret English brown ale that will make us swoon?

    Help us get out of our brewing ruts and make something new!

    Also I think the prize should be the ingredients for another batch, otherwise you are excluding your most loyal customers ;-)

    Yep, I don't think there's much of anywhere to go with membership for me, either.

    Why thank you Sir! your a true friend and a Gent! Honestly excited, would just like to clarify any contract and make it good for all concerned. I'm a newb but I recon sending in a bottle might be the fairest. A physical prize wont eat into your long term business plan as much and keeps us brewing :)

    I like the idea of some competition... I have an idea (may not be a good one).

    How about Spring beer as per OP...but

    Have the grain bill fixed, free choice of hops, yeast, method, then brew and send a bottle to Yooper for judging.

    Example...
    3kg Pale Ale Malt
    1.5kg Vienna Malt
    250g Brown Malt
    250g Wheat Malt

    Oh, I like the idea of you all sending me beer- but that might make it difficult for our friends out of the US to play along!

    It doesn't matter- recipes will generally scale in homebrew sized batches.

    I wonder if it could be on a slightly longer time scale, we submit a recipe and folk brew themselves and judge it by vote?
