Random SheppyBrew Recipes

After typing up SheppyBrew's Most Brewed Beers, I got to thinking ... "what am I going to do with my Roll-a-Style list once my 'Bench' has been emptied?"

Ok ... not something I have to worry about for a long time (and really ... why would I worry about it at all?) ... but in only 8 Roll-a-Style brews, my "Bench" will be empty.

As a computer geek, here is what I came up with: 

I made a change to SheppyBrew.com where my recipe page will randomly pick a previously brewed beer when the id=random.

IE ... 


So, my Roll-a-Style will slowly switch from giving me new styles to randomly giving me a beer I've already brewed, but likely not in quite awhile.

As I type this, I'm realizing that by the time I get to this point, there is likely to be a new version of the BJCP Guidelines, and I'll probably be able to fill the list with new styles. 

Oh well ... I may want to use the random recipe picker for some other reason.

Anyway ... as a reminder ... my Roll-a-Style list looks like this:
