Cooking Technique question

I think I am going to attempt to make Baked beans this friday. I am debating whether to use the crock pot or the dutch oven. But thats not my real question.
Goodweed gave me the over all list of ingredients to use but no quantities. And I dont drink so I have no idea of what dark hoppy bear to use.
But when cooking by the seat of your pants...
Can you sorta dump all your prepped ingredients into your cooking vessel in minimu quantities and sorta taste and add as you go along? Or do you sorta have to cook a batch , taste ,chuck it and start over?

Mrs. Towles Baked Beans (and we ARE from New England)

1 lb Navy Beans
1/4 lb salt pork
1/8 cup sugar
2/3 cup molasses
1 tablespoon dry mustard
s&p to taste
1/2 medium onion

Pick beans over, rinse and soak overnight in cold water. Place peeled onion in bottom of bean pot (your dutch oven), add drained beans. Cut through salt pork rind and place on top of beans. Mix sugar, molasses, mustard, salt and peeper with one ping boiling water and pour over beans. Add additional water if necessary to cover beans. Bake at 300 degrees for about 6 hours adding boiling water as the beans cook.
