Does it make sense to put them in the recipe database if you are happy with them?

At least then all the recipes are in the one spot.

Can vouch for the Honey Blonde, I've put a version on the database here. I've since made it again with some wheat malt and Cascade hops. Will probably use something like Carapils instead of wheat next time, but that's just my taste. IMO would work well with most American hops or even Galaxy or Nelson Sauvignon.

I always find that the Coopers Canadian Blonde a good base to experiment with.
