If you post some more pictures I'd be happy to do some of the transcription and I'm sure other people would help too. The picture you posted is ugly by today's standards but quite readable compared to some of these http://barclayperkins.blogspot.ca/20...from-1800.html and Ron Pattinson posts here sometimes as patto1ro. With all the research he has done, he can probably read them as clear as modern typeface

Bet you are right, I am reading his book "porter!" and the sheer amount of brewing logs that man has gone through is mind blowing

..I just borrowed porter! from a friend and started going through it..and trying to figure out how I'd brew the 1859 Barclay Perkins imperial brown stout (OG 1.105 and 20+ oz of hops in a 5gal batch) on my system!

That image is interesting. Particularly the reference to Mild Ale. I'm pretty sure that wasn't the usual term in the USA. "Present Use" was more common I think. That table of beers reminded me of something. Eventually I remembered:



It's from An American Handy Book of the Brewing, Malting and Auxiliart Trades by Wahl and Henius, 1902.

Yup, looks basically the same. The book is definitely from 1902 according to my co-worker. They weren't sure what school he went to, but the first page mentions Wahl, so I'm fairly certain he attended. Again, I promise to get more up whenever I have time. I don't want to put it on my scanner because I'm afraid to damage it.

I'm still looking forward to the cream ale and commons stuff.

If you want any help reading the document, I'd be happy to help. It doesn't look that bad. Especially compared to the Vassar records I'm currently trying to decipher.

I'm watching this video on Philly's beer history with Rich Wagner.
