You're probably not likely to get many responses to this. The best advice I can give is to find a 5, or 6, or 10 gallon recipe that looks good and divide all the ingredient amounts by 5 (or 6, or 10, depending on the recipe size).

I brew 3 gallon recipes primarily -- and probably for many of the same reasons you're looking for a 1g recipe -- and usually need to scale my recipes.

All recipes are scalable, so like mcaloney said, find a recipe you like and scale it to your size. If it's a 5 gallon, 1/5....

Although it's worth looking into what will happen to (#1) your hop utilization and (#2) your efficiency. Hop utilization generally decreases as the boil volume decreases, so you'll probably need to bump up the hops a bit after scaling (especially for hop-oriented beers such as IPAs). You may be able to achieve a more vigorous boil with a smaller volume, which would have an effect on both factors. Also, if you're using an oversize kettle to boil, your extract/wort will have a larger proportional surface area, resulting in more boiloff (this side effect can be avoided by using an appropriately-scaled pot). Probably not a huge factor, but something to keep in mind that will mean the recipes won't taste EXACTLY the same after being scaled down.

Most 3-6 gallon recipes will scale down just fine...use appropriately-proportioned vessels and consider increasing bittering hops a bit and things should come out just tasty. (Keep an eye on potentially over-pitching your yeast...a full packet of WL or Wyeast may be ay too much for a 1 gallon batch...you may want to save some for storage in the fridge.)

That is what I figured, the scaling (divide everything by 5).

Darkbrood, thanks for the additional information. Will definitely take into consideration.

Thanks

Take a look at this book:
http://brooklynbrewshop.com/beermakingbook

It is specific to All-grain 1 gallon batches. It documents many beers according to which season you should make them. Overall some great recipes.

Everyone feels the need to bring this up, but it's really a non issue, any discrepencies one may think they have with this, is really negligable and actually beyond anyone's ability to discern.

Been making small batches for YEARS, everything from lightly hopped to diipas and it's NEVER BEEN AN ISSUE.

For EITHER of these issues actually.

Density/gravity of the boil is what matters, if you scaled it right, should be the same gravity, so utilization SHOULD be same at 1g or 5g.

And if it isn't, it's going to be such a minor shift our palates couldn't discern it anyway.
