I'm sure there are a ton of good ones out there. Post your favorites and why.

Here are a few that I've been reading recently;

- https://www.freewebs.com/kenlenard/recipes.htm
Great looking classic beer recipes. I haven't brewed any yet but they all look pretty solid. Great descriptions accompany each recipe. Very soon I will brew a few of his Mexican Lagers. Big props to the author.

- beerandbrewing.com
Has great recipes and brewing articles. I've spent many hours reading this site.

- https://www.ballastpoint.com/beer-recipes/
I just came across this thanks to a recent thread here. The recipes look pretty good and great instructions as well as tasting notes. I don't brew IPA's often but want to try their ginger IPA recipe.

My interest is almost exclusively in historic English beers. My #1 favorite blog is Ron Pattinson's "Shut Up About Barclay Perkins". Ton's of recipes in the archives and he posts a new one roughly every Wednesday and Saturday... https://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/

A new one I just found is called "Make Mine A Magee's". The author doesn't post as prolifically as Ron but there are some interesting recipes... https://oldbeersandbrewing.blogspot.com/

The blog, "Zythophile", written by Martyn Cornell is short on recipes but is a good read and should be bookmarked and viewed regularly by any fan of English beer past, present and future... http://zythophile.co.uk/

Along the same lines as Zythophile is "Boak and Bailey" written by Jessica Boak and Ray Bailey... https://boakandbailey.com/

AHA recipe list and HBT are my typical online resources. I've also pulled recipes from Mad Fermentationist, Brulosophy, and Basic Brewing. I also heavily rely on several books as well.
How Do Lump42 ,
Have you seen the Historic Aussie beer books ; Bronzed Brews , & Six O`Clock Brews by Peter Symons ? ( Available though Lulu i believe , or check out Peter`s F.B Page : Bronzed Brews ,They`re both well worth a look , with some beauts of beer recipies in there as well .
Cheers & Happy Mashing ,

I have not read his books yet. I've got a backlog of books to read. I've heard several interviews with Peter. I'll be adding your site to my recipe lists to wander through too.

Definitely worth picking these up and even more so if you can get the Melbourne No 1 yeast (WLP059) to brew the recipes.

Everyone is all over kevik yeasts these days, but WLP059 is like the cleaner Aussie version that doesn't make your beer taste like a mix of old spice and sauerkraut. :)

I've looked at Ron Pattinson's site before but the others are new to me. Glad I asked. They look like good sites.

Was thinking about picking up either WLP059 or WLP009, can you provide some information regarding WLP059 as there is not much information on the whitelabs site. Also is WLP009 one of the "cabbage and old spice" yeasts?

I see on this page http://beer.suregork.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Brewing_yeast_family_tree_nov_2018_v11.pdf
that WLP025 and WLP009 are some what close to each other in the family tree. Any thoughts on how those two compare to one another?

Hi Ba-Brewer ,
No thoughts per se , but I`d imagine the WLP 009 will be happier with a higher sugar % than the Southwold type ,
Cheers ,

Not Got round to the East Anglian Breweries Records as yet ! , and as to other records , I`d love any pre US ones ; There are some at the venerable Albany Institute of History and Art ; and if anyone`s got any photos of old brewing records or know of sources etc , I`d be happy to convert them and pop a few recipies up on here ( Pop me a Direct Message if you`re able to help )

Cheers All , and Happy Mashing :tank:

The Melbourne strain is a very interesting one. From what I've read, its use in Australia can be traced back to the early 1900's, having originally come from a Yorkshire brewery. It quickly became a workhorse strain for many breweries there and in doing so largely preserved the character of the yeast, as it was used in that form for decades. There aren't too many ale yeasts that have had such a long, stable, and uninterrupted history.

Performance wise, it is unique. It can utilize large % of simple sugars in the beer and still ferment out clean, non-winey, and lightly fruity. It is tolerant of high temps and does not seem to produce phenols. It makes drinkable and clean beers, lets hops/malt come through and flocculates well. That said, it has a character that is similar to some of the older legacy brewery strains found in the US; hard to describe, but there is a certain "makes beer that your granddad drank" quality. Think Anchor Steam.

WLP009 is a nice yeast too. None of the fermented vegetable and orange spice notes one can get from the Kveiks. More traditional UK; fruity, bready malt, and slight banana-y esters when fermented warm. Makes fruity and drinkable beer, not really great for hops tho, IMO.

The issue with the yeast genetics is that it does not tell anything about the phenotype of the strains. Two yeasts that are genetically similar can be worlds apart in flavor, like the relationship between mittelfrueh and citra hops. It also does not say how close the yeasts are genetically... 10%, 20%, 50% or more?

Thanks for the information.

I was thinking the "spice and cabbage" was with respect to wlp009 or other Australian yeast not the Kveiks so thanks for clarifying.

Looks like I may have missed the boat on WLP009 and WLP059 from the vault, but I will keep my eye open for them in the future.

All great resources above! Perhaps one worth mentioning for newer brewers to avoid is Beersmith cloud search. Anyone can upload their recipe to share, and unlike HBT there is no feedback. I've sifted through some incredibly strange and crazy things there.

Can be found elsewhere on HBT, but since you asked. I like to use the following.

http://www.alternativecommutepueblo.com/2011/10/ahanhc-gold-medal-winning-recipes-for.html

Can't argue with Gold!
Most are broken links but there are a few good recipes there.
I used the archive.org API to lookup the links in 'gold medal recipes' that were from the AHA wiki. Here's the list recipes and links for 'almost all' of the recipes that were in the AHA wiki. If a recipe is not in the lists below, try a manual search of archive.org.

Wow. That's a lot of great info BrewnWKopperKat. I'm bookmarking and will check them out for my tobrew list. I'm sure others reading this will appreciate as well. I'm really glad a asked the question.

I use the recipes on HBT, Northern Brewer's kits and Beersmith. I usually look at a couple that are close to what I want to brew, then substitute to use what I have on hand. I rarely brew a recipe exactly as published anymore.

I’m with you. The only time I follow a recipe is if it’s a style I’m not too familiar with and even then there’s a little wiggle room to customize.
I swear I have this rare undiagnosed disorder. I can’t sit by my kettle without throwing in last minute hops or half pound of honey, orange peels etc.

That is something that I don't do. I think out my recipe and once I get it where I think I will get what I expect, I stick to it.

You can also try this to find all the recipes from the old AHA wiki...
https://web.archive.org/web/20170619030836/http://wiki.homebrewersassociation.org/Recipes
A couple of months ago, I was curious about recovering broken links in "NHC GOLD MEDAL HOMEBREW RECIPES 2004-2017". Back then, I started with the page you mentioned and ended up at .../AHA-National-Homebrew-Competition-Winners-Circle. This page has links to winning recipes by year. Close, but I want them by category. Also, the links on that page are currently broken, so that doesn't help either.

Recently, I had some spare time, so I thought programming against the internet archive API would be interesting. So I filtered the html on the web page to extract the "wiki" URLs, then used internet archive web API to convert those URLs into "internet archive" URLs.

I was pleased with the large number of recipes that I could find and thought the results, organized by style, might be useful to others.

For those who have AHA membership, the recipes can also be found here: https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/homebrew-recipes/ (filter by "Winners Only" and desired beer style).

I also posted this in a related topic (since it placed higher in various search engine results). Wanted to add it here so that those following the current topic would see it as well.

"NHC Gold Medal Winning Recipe Breakdown 2004-2014
"[reddit poster] spent the past few weeks compiling all of the gold medal winning recipes that are posted on the AHA website from 2004-2014. I put them in a spreadsheet and calculated the recipes based on percentage of grains, hops used, OG, FG, mash temp and yeast used."

Actually no, they are not all broken. In the spirit of the title of this thread this link may be of great help to other brewers. I was merely offering and addition to the thread.

In a broader context, the internet archives can be certainly be both interesting and helpful. In the short term, it can help extend the life of dead resources (e.g. AHA wiki) and almost dead resources (e.g. 'Gold Medal Recipes').

It takes a while for dead resources to disappear from discussion, but they do disappear (remember when BYO offered some good content for free and those links were often seen in discussions?).

Over time forum discussion has also shown that it can enhance good resources - current data on current recipe sets, similar to 'Designing Great Beers': https://www.reddit.com/r/Homebrewin...gold_medal_winning_recipe_breakdown_20042014/).

Forum discussion also brings out new alternative resources (https://beerandbrewing.com/search/?q=make yourbest&hPP=20&idx=cbb_web&p=0).

For me, finding good links for 'Gold Medal Recipes" in the internet archives was an interesting programming exercise (and use some of my hobby time). If the result is valuable to others (or inspires someone to build on the idea), that's an additional benefit to some/many us as well.

Update
I recently brewed a session pilz-
https://beerandbrewing.com/summer-session-pilsner-czech-pale-lager-recipe
I’ve made this recipe four times now and it has become one of my faves. Each time I tweak the hops just a bit.
Great session beer with tons of flavor. Perfect camping beer. The flavors of this beer really come together after about 6 weeks of lagering.
The latest batch I threw an oz of ginger and the peel from one lemon in the boil and it’s great.

I currently have a session IPA fermenting now. The recipe was inspired from Craft Beer and Brewing site as well.
