If any of you are familiar with the name Hensler Beer, it was brewed in Newark from the late 1800's until about the 1950's. My great grandfather and great uncle were both brewmasters there for quite a long time.
My nana is 85 and doing great. Over the holidays I told her I was getting back into homebrewing and she said she should try to find some of the old Hensler brewery documents for me.
If she could find vintage recipes for this beer, is it possible to calculate it down to small scale for extract batches? Is extract even a viable option, as I am sure they did it the "old fashioned way"? This would be a truly awesome experience, and I am but an amateur homebrewer!
