Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Scaling up recipe
Does anybody have experience scaling up a homebrew recipe (5-10 gal.) to production size (10 bbl)? I know it's not as cut and dry as simply multiplying the amounts of the same ratio. Perhaps this is a cross-over question for the other board as well?

Re: Scaling up recipe
Thanks.

We're trying to scale up an Imperial IPA recipe of mine at the new dockstreet brew pub that got best of show gold at malt madness a couple weekends ago. Julius, the head brewer, hasn't scaled up a recipe from 5 gallons before so we were unsure of exactly how to go about it. He believed the relative size of the hop additions might have to be lowered a bit... I'll check out those sights and see what I can come up with.

The ProMash software is also used for brewpubs and has a setup option for home brewing sizes or brewpub barrel sizes for formulating recipes.

Re: Scaling up recipe
Can't use the ProMash software cause I'm running a mac, though I think the comps at the local homebrew store might have it installed and I could ask them to use it....I did find some helpful info on probrewer.com....

Thanks again....

I think that beertools has a free trial of their calculators that is web based and has an option to scale up/down batches...not sure how big it goes though as I have never used it...best of luck

BPotts, can't you run it within a Windows emulator on the Mac?
