Commercial recipes posted online
« on: October 03, 2014, 01:20:48 AM »
From a thread in a Seattle homebrew club's mail list, I ran across links to a couple of commercial breweries that post their recipes for all to see.

One is Gigantic Brewing Company from Porland, OR.  All recipes are scaled to 1 bbl, and the proportions of the ingredients are both interesting and instructive.  The grain bills that I've looked are are restrained in the number of types, and the hops are often tilted will toward the whirlpool or dryhop phase-- both of which are principles often extolled here.

Another is Modern Times of San Diego.   Their recipes are scaled to an amateur-friendly 5 gal batch size.

As a software engineer who spends a lot of time in the open-source world, I love this concept.  As a fairly new brewer who is starting to explore recipe formulation, these resources are especially noteworthy.

I like this idea too, will have to dig a little deeper into those links. I know it's said here often that if you want a recipe, talk to the brewery but this is even easier

Deschutes posts their ingredient lists, but makes you figure out the rest

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

If you look around the web you can find home brew recipes for Pliny the Elder. Blind Pig, Hopfather, Hop 2 It, and some other Russian River beers provided by the Brewery.

And there is the book "Craft Beers for the Homebrewer".  Some great Brewers giving their recipes for use by the homebrewer, along with a little of their personal stories.  Many started as homebrewers!  And it has commentary by some notable Homebrew types, such as Denny Conn!

Really a nice read and I am brewing my way through it...with excellent results.

Me too... this experience has drastically improved since I started using BS to tweak the recipes, ensuring I hit my targets.

There are many breweries the list the malts and hops used. Sierra Nevada comes first to mind. Proportions, water treatment, and yeast in some cases are left to the home brewer.

Interesting link, especially the yeast and the fermentation information. Thanks.
Automated mashing and fermentation is not so strange

Stone has some online.

I've wanted to brew those for a while. I get all amped up on the idea then I see the wine must in 10.10.10 and lose interest. I guess if I do it right, I won't need to worry about that for 8 years.

Actually, I've been wanting to make a saison with ~ 30% muscat and/or riesling must for awhile. I think the tartness of the saison yeast and the juice would marry up nicely. Don't know when it'll happen.

Those are written by someone with a sense of humor-- priceless!
