Zymurgy / Re: eZymurgy for past issues?

Well..they say that the archives are now available back to 2006 but every time I try to view an older issue I'm told that I need to log in (which I already have).  Not sure if anyone else is experiencing the same problem.

I have nearly two cases of a 'bourbon barrel' porter that tasted terrible when I brewed it three years ago.  Threw both in the crawl space and forgot about them.  Pulled one out last month for s***s & giggles and couldn't believe how much the beer had improved.  Got me a 2nd place in Smoke & Wood-Aged category at the Chicago Beer Society's Spooky Brew comp.

Thanks guys.  I see I was looking at the UK barrel conversion there originally.

I doubt I'm going to be able to get too much more in terms of OG or brewhouse efficiency from this brewer so I'm jsut gonna have to fill the gaps with some generalities. 


Beer Recipes / Scaling Help Needed

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.
