    Homebrew Recipes from my Commercial Brewery!

    Hi everyone, I guess it's been a while since I've logged in here! Pretty wild to see one of my old posts still stickied here. Anyway, I recently opened a new dedicated gluten-free brewery (all by myself this time, no partners or investors!) called Mutantis Brewery and Bottle Shop. Located in...

    How to Brew A Crowd Pleaser

    We have all been there. There is an event coming up that you want, or have been asked, to brew a beer for, and you want to brew up something that sets itself apart from the light lagers that so many are fond of while remaining accessible to those same light lager drinkers. It is a delicate...

    Experimenting With Ingredients In Your Kitchen To Make Prepackaged Kits Unique

    Kits are a staple of the homebrewing scene. Put together by your local homebrew shop or the big online retailers, they are all-in-one boxes that give you everything you need to create beers that are time-tested and brewer-approved. Sometimes they are clones of popular craft brews, other times...

    Be a Better Brewer: Get SMaSH'd On Brew Day

    There’s an easy and delicious way to improve your beer creation skills. Just get "SMaSH’d" on brew day. Not smashed as in “drink a beer make a beer,” but SMaSH’d as in brewing Single Malt and Single Hop beers. Brewing SMaSH beers dials you directly in to the abundantly flavorful and educational...

    What's In A Name?

    Many of us first felt the call to homebrew after tasting a great hand-crafted ale or lager at a local brewery or brewpub. That magical sip bursting with flavor, the aroma wafting up from the head, the intricate lacing left in the glass. There really is nothing like the moment you realize that...

    Developing your own Recipes

    Everyone Homebrews for one reason or another. Some of us do it to compete and brew the best style possible. Others do it to save a few bucks over some of the top shelf beers. Others will brew beer to make something new and unheard of. Each has their merits and each starts with a recipe. There...

    How did you get started creating your own recipes?

    I would love to hear everyone's story on how they switched from brewing kits to creating their own recipes. I eventually want to brew my own recipes but don't know where to start. Thanks!

    Scaling Down Hops in Recipes

    We've got several 31 gallon beer recipes and we would like to scale them down for our setup - which produces about 11 gallons of fermentable wort. I've searched this site for information on scaling and learned that the hops schedule does not scale in a linear fashion. We know we can plug the...

    Mormon Pioneer Homebrew Recipes?

    So I know this is kind of a long shot, but I'm looking for homebrew recipes from Mormons or Mormon communities between 1850 and 1950. My great-grandma was a homebrewer and a Mormon, and she had a recipe for wheat beer that is light on the details. I'm eventually hoping to pull together enough to...

    Stop Worrying About Your Weight

    Brewers often use the weight of malt and hops when writing recipes, but this sometimes makes for confusion due to varying brewhouse efficiencies, batch sizes, and even units of measurement. I propose a different way to write recipes so that they may be universally understood and utilized...

    Foolproof recipes?

    I have 10 one gallon jugs, and want to have a brewfest at my work. Planning to offer my coworkers a chance to try brewing something at their desks. I personally find it soothing to have a carboy airlock bubbling within my line of sight. Going to offer them to try: Joe's Ancient Orange Mead...
