    Did not see this in the FAQ, so if I missed it, please bump it.

    I'm having an issue adding a "Friends" profile. His profile is public, but when I search the name it comes back with nothing. I can find his recipes, but no where that I can click "follow" like the instructions say.

    *Please note we both have trial accounts, so this may be the reason, but found nothing that suggest that.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The small yearly fee is well worth it...saving recipes alone is a huge benefit. Not to mention inventory, brewing reports, etc that make it easy to keep track of things over a span of time.

    Ok, thanks!

    Already liking a lot of the things that are offered. And for the cost, you can't beat it.

    I guess a membership is in order!

    Thanks!

    so here's what you do, first you need to make your profile public https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/profile then search for a member, then find a person either through the recipes or from the member search, since the member search is just a google link "Google has to cache your profile before member search works" and that takes time, once you find someone like me https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/brewer/5889/ozarks-mountain-brew you click the follow button, then it shows up on your my brewing drop down/ my friends https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/myfriends, all that shows is the stats and a link to their profile, nothing else, I hope this helps

    I usually add friends at the end of the boil, but sometimes will dry friend for a few days before bottling.
