All Grain Beer Recipes

Beer recipes can be found all over the internet but there are usually many variants for the same clone/style of beer. The Recipes that I have added to this page are all tried/tested and proven to give good results. If you want to create your own recipes, the best way to do this is to use use software, which assist with the complex formulas required for calculating expected values for Original Gravity, Final Gravity and Alcohol content.

Two Free applications that I have used are :

QBrew - Quite basic but very easy to use and gives you some idea of the minimum and maximum settings for your brew

Brewfather - This is a fairly new and powerful app which is worth taking a look at, it has a modern web design and is very easy to use. The free version allows you to design and store up to 10 recipes but after this you need to pay an annual subscription. This app has excellent connectivity options for tools like Tilt and Brewbot.

For a more complex piece of software, take a look at Beersmith. This is not free software but you can download a free trial to see if you like it first. Due to the extensive functionality found in Beersmith, this software is not really for the beginner but is worth the investment once you have done a few "All Grain" brews.

Summer Lightning (Hopback Clone)

This recipe is a clone of Summer Lightning, which is made by the Hopback Brewery. It is a very pale ale, almost a lager colour, and is great for drinking during the summer. The recipe uses only Pale Malt and Hops, there are no other malts or sugar added. Sometimes the best beers are made by just adding very simple ingredients. If you are a beginner, this is a good place to start as there are relatively few ingredients to find. Alternatively, you can get this recipe in a kit from BrewUk, which is what I did.

Fullers London Pride

I think this recipe originally came from Graham Wheelers book but am not sure . The only problem that I have with this recipe is that it requires 4 different types of hops, which can work out very expensive if you have to purchase them in 100g packs. Although this recipe will make a good beer whatever yeast that you use, if you want to get close to London Pride you will need to use the correct liquid yeast. This is a good example of a beer that really shines when brewed with liquid yeasts.

Fullers ESB 38L

This brew was planned using the Beer Engine software to make a 2 Corny batch. ESB is essentially a stronger version of London Pride and uses the same ratios in the recipe, just more overall ingredients. This is a lovely beer but is a little strong at 5.5% for a session ale.

Sara Carter's Bombay IPA

This recipe was taken from posts on the Jims Beerkit Forum. This beer is a clone based on "Jaipur", which is brewed by the award winning Thornbridge Brewery. Sara has won awards with this beer and it has received a lot of interest and praise on the Homebrew forums. The recipe has an IBU of around 55, so has a strong bitter taste. The hops used provide a citrus flavour, which is very refreshing.

Doom Bar

The recipe for Doom bar is a closely gaurded secret but there are a few attempted clone recipes that I have found after some research. This recipe is available as a kit from the Malt Miller and seems to be as close to the real thing as any I have found. Most of the hops are added at the end of the boil for a "hop stand" and the fermentation temperature is unusually high at around 25C.
