See some guys have gone and defined a new standard "BeerXML" for the interchange of data between beer recipe products.
Great idea, but as with all standards it is up to the vendors (in this case Promash, Beersmith, StrangeBrew etc) to implement it into their products.

BeerXML is a free, fully defined XML data description designed for the exchange of beer brewing recipes and other brewing data. Tables of recipes as well as other records such as hops can be represented using BeerXML for use by brewing programs.

It is our hope that BeerXML will eventually allow for the open exchange of recipes between different beer brewing software packages. Compliance is purely voluntary, however, so timelines for implementation of the proposed standard may vary.
On the upside the standard was developed by some of the Recipe product vendors

Beers,

Berrxml would be ideal for Andrew's Brewtimer and the requests for importing recipes.
