I normally set the date to 01/01/01 and then anytime I brew, I change the date to the day It was brewed. This lets me keep a history of the brew dates. And When I modify a recipe I clone the original and rename it so I can see where I started and where I ended up. FYI I use Roman Numerals for the different iterations.
