Is there any way to have a recipes tab for those who want to share recipes of some merit?

I think we already have one.

Where is it?

I guess I meant a non-forumn approach. Check out this sext software over at Rockhoppers, could be it's free?
There is indeed already a section for it. If you go to Forums on the top, then in "The Monks" section, there is a whole sub forum for Beer Recipes

Yeah, I know. I want more sexy!

Would Google docs work?
I checked out the link. It appears to me that one of their members wrote the software for the site. It is possible that he used code from various places to bring it all together, but I am not sure. I can only imagine the amount of work he is putting into the site to make it that pretty. Unfortunately, I do not do web design or administration full time and so do not have the time to program something like that. I will keep my eye out for a plugin to vBulletin that might serve the same purpose.

Looks like it is open source and free. Requirements are MySQL and PHP support:
If you want to use it and need someone to help out with that let me know.
**I put an example on a free host I use if you want to see the bare bones example. Seems fairly simple to set up and use.

It is nice to see more and more collaboration!

Wow, if you have a way to export or put your existing recipes into BeerXML format, this web app makes it a snap to import. I just put in some of my more recent recipes to test it out. If anyone wants to play with the test site I put up, I can give you access.

Show me how!

Go to http://hossman.elementfx.com/brewblogger/ . Play around with it all you want.
I put in a couple test accounts:
I am happy to attempt to set it up on the site, but one thing to consider: it does not have the ability to tie into the vBulletin software, so you will have to log into it separately and setup a new username and password for it.
Darren, thanks for setting up the trial for it. Guys, let me know if it is something you want me to work on and I will see if it can go on www.milehighmonks.com

Yeah, that is definitely the biggest negative I can see is that there is no way to use the VBulletin user info. I'm sure a programming guru could figure a way, but that is definitely not me. I don't mind a separate account if it means having a nice recipe system on the site like this. I have BeerSmith so putting up my recipes is a breeze with this system. It would be awesome to see some (ALL) of the recipes of the beers I've tasted at the meetings!

I could live with a link from this site up near the top and a common password Monks share. You'd only need it to enter a recipe.
