Hey guys and Gals. I need your help looking over these recipes. I have finished the first 50 recipes for Beersmith users and would love some input about ingredient choices and what-not. All the recipes are by the book on measurement of ingredients (grains/hops/yeast amounts/water amounts/and temperatures), however the numbers sometimes don't match the book on IBU/SRM/OG/FG/etc. That being said, I just need help lining up the best possible suggestion for grains, or if I need to be more vague and simply say something like pale UK vs. Thomas Faucett. Hope you guys can help me out, but if not at least you will have some extra recipes to work on yourself... or you can always re-download them once I have it all worked out via this thread and your help.

To make it easier on me and this thread, I have posted links on my profile page. You will have to go there and copy and paste to your address bar to get the zip files from dropbox. Then, when you make a recommendation or change to a recipe... post it here in the thread. That keeps me where I can separate my work from your help. When all is concluded, this first post will have an edit showing the thread has accomplished what it was meant to, and the recipes will be ready for anyone at the first post. I will talk later with Tx about how to get them into the forum recipe page if at all possible, but even if this doesn't work out, there will be a way to get them for your use.

I am stating right here though, "You should buy this book! These recipes are just to make it easier to get them in a brewing program. If you want to know why these recipes are how they are... you need to read the book. These are a baseline for selected styles, and hints and tricks to make yours better or different are only going to be found there." Now saying this, if it all falls through and they cannot be posted... I would at least like your help on "my" (I don't mean mine like mine) recipes. I take no credit other than putting them into the program, my name is not on them anywhere, and they are for us all.

Thanks a million guys, and click my profile page and look for them in Brew History. Then change them and post them here.

Since I own the book, I don't feel bad downloading the recipes. Thanks for taking the time to add them!

Wow.. great work! I got sick of putting the recipes in.

Did you use the 70% efficiency, etc?

I used evrything the book told me to input, and even setup a equipment profile that matched the information they gave. If I missed something, that is what all you guys are for .

I thought I was the only one doing this! I got through the lagers and have not moved into ales yet! I was hesitant to post, but you have good reasoning me thinks!

I will compare yours to mine and hopefully help so all of us that own the book can have access to these in Beersmith!

Awesome Job Wort. I own and have brewed several beers from BCS. I have also used several recipes as a starting point in formulating my own recipes. If you don't own this book, you should definitely buy it. I will take a look at the recipes you have posted and let you know if I find any errors. Thanks for sharing the files.

So, just wanted to check in and see if anyone has something to say about the recipes? Remember, this is a constructive criticism with information thread. No one will take offense to objections to the recipes, but they may be debated for the best possible outcome. I want these to be OK'd by all. Thanks again guys for all the help with these.

Whoa, awesome! I own the book, but I love that you've made it easy to put the recipes into BS. Thanks so much! I don't have much constructive criticism, but if I find something I'll be sure to let you know.
