Default Recipe help

Okay so I've been looking through the recipes on this site and on brewtoad.com, but I still haven't found what I'm looking for...

cue U2

Anyway....

I'm looking for a 2 gallon extract Blue Moon clone recipe. I would also be happy with one for Bells Oberon, again 2 gallon extract.

Thanks!

Is it the scale of the recipe or the ingredients you haven't been satisfied with? You won't find too many recipes for 2 gallons online, but if you find a recipe you like that's for 5, scaling it down shouldn't be too hard.

Got it, that does help. Are there any tricks to scaling down a recipe? Or is it just as I would imagine - let's say a 5 gallon batch recipe calls for 1 oz of hops so for the 2 gallon batch I would only use like .40 oz.

if you are given a 5 gallon batch divide the amount (weight) of ingredients by 5 and then multiply by 2 for everything from grains to extract to hops, recipes are scalable up or down in finished volume.

It's absolutely perfect linear scale. I brew 2 gallon batches and I've never in my entire life seen a 2 gallon recipe for *anything*. I've scaled *every* time.

Tips: If your scale is digital and you can use metric to measure .4 oz of hops in grams. Grams is more accurate. If recipes give AA% use that to measure the bittering hops. If your recipe *doesn't* your hops are just an estimate anyway as each batch has a different AA percentage anyway. Err, upward on yeast. Accuracy for extract and/or grain and/or water (i.e. anything *but* hops and yeast) is not very important.

... or multiply by 4 and divide by 10. Or divide in half and add 1/4. Or convert from oz to tenths of lbs and divide in half. Or ...
