Should be CW since there's no single "right" answer. – Jeff L Nov 10 '10 at 22:35
I'm not using the "beer" tag for this question because I'm hoping it will become a community wiki that will have pointers to all kinds of recipes, not just beer recipes. – Nicholas Trandem Nov 11 '10 at 16:41
Okay, changed my mind based on discussion in the comments here: meta.homebrew.stackexchange.com/questions/6/… – Nicholas Trandem Nov 11 '10 at 17:16

Hopville lets you save recipes... it's not just a source of them, I often find that I can't find exactly the ingredients in a recipe. Also it will guesstimate Initial and Final gravity, color and other useful information.

It is, in fact, a source of recipes. – Tom McCann Dec 1 '10 at 23:22
Fair enough. Reword slightly. – aslum Jun 30 '13 at 19:34

Thanks! Can you edit to add the types of recipes? – Nicholas Trandem Nov 10 '10 at 22:07
Both hbd and Tastybrew have many recipes that have never actually been brewed and might have serious issues. I'd advise you to stay away from both. – user839 Mar 15 '11 at 17:37
I am with Denny. Online recipe sources are so hard to trust. Best to just brew something yourself out of a book or mag, then learn to tweak the recipe to what you really like. – brewchez Mar 15 '11 at 19:47

There are some great ones in the HomeBrewTalk Recipe Database.

Northern Brewer posts all of the recipes for its kits.

Both sites have a good number of reviews for many of the recipes.

Just started a site for Cider brewing and adding my tested recipes frequently. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

I see I'm a bit late in the game here, but I would nonetheless recommend Brewtoad to anyone who's looking for new recipes or would like to share theirs.

You can post recipes to share or browse recipes posted by other brewers. It's a really neat site with excellent UI/UX. You can even see what color your beer will be as you tweak your ingredients, and once you've settled on a recipe you can order the supplies in a snap.

Brewers friend has a nice list of recipes that you can look through and sort by many different criteria. They have tons of useful calculators and a recipe designer as well.

There are tons of other useful things on that site besides what I have listed above, but those are the places I go most often there.
