What resources do you use when planning your next recipe? I am going to continue experimenting with one gallon batches until I find a winner to brew five gallons again. I'm aware that you can plan out in software like Beer Smith, but curious if you aim for a commercial beer or a former winning home-brew recipe.
Are there any links to gold winning home brew recipes? Additionally, any commercial breweries that you know of that share recipes?
I recently purchased Michael Agnew's new book. It has many recipes of commercial beers from the breweries themselves. Mostly Midwest breweries, but some form the East and West coast as well. (was hoping for that strawberry-Rhubarb from New Glarus) Anyway, the forum's own Denny Conn is a contributor to the book as well.
I'm trying a 15 gallon batch of Avery's Maharajah this weekend.
One thing I found intriguing about this book of recipes is all the recipes are written for extract, but have an all grain conversion. And in that conversion, amount of hops changes as well. I've not seen that in other recipe books.
