Beer Recipes / Scaling Help Needed
« on: November 04, 2010, 04:24:03 PM »
First time I've ever attempted to scale down a recipe.  I think I was able to get the grain bill calculated correctly but am having a hard time figuring out how to convert the recipe from 16bbl to 5 gal.

Here are the percentages that I came up with:

Fermentables         Lbs         %
2-Row                   700   57.85%
Biscuit                   220   18.18%
Munich                  110   9.09%
Victory                  75    6.20%
Black Malt              50    4.13%
Carafa III               40    3.31%
Molasses                15    1.24%
                         1210   100.00%

I believe a bbl is 43 gals so that brings this to 688gals.  This is the part where I'm stuck. 

Anyone have any advice?

Thank you,


p.s. - Never worked with molasses before.  Not sure when to add that to the boil.
