BJCP Style Guideline XML

The style guidelines are now being offered in XML format. Software developers are welcome to download these files for use in their applications (eg., brewing recipe calculator, online recipe sharing, specially formatted study guide) ONLY IF the content and license block is not modified in any way.

Modifications to the xml schema for internal use are acceptable, but please send any modifications to the BJCP Communication Director for possible inclusion in future revisions of the schema.

In addition to the XML document, both a DTD and a XSD are offered for validation purposes. The XML currently references the DTD but can instead use the XSD with a simple change.


To download the documents, simply right-click and "save as" on each filename.
