The following recipes are a collection from books, internet sites, and recipes of my own. Most of these recipes are for 6 1/4 gallons of beer. As I find more recipes that I like, I'll post them here so check for updates.
-Hellcat Lager This recipe is a pilsner/American pale ale. The bittering and flavor hops are Cascade, and the aroma hops are Saaz. I really enjoy the flavor of this beer and the aroma is balanced evenly between the hops and malt.
-Oatmeal Creamy Pale Ale This recipe was originally formulated from leftover ingredients and it turned out great! The flavor is a hoppy APA but it has a very strong yeasty flavor as well. The yeast tastes of fruit such as pears and bananas. The hoppy flavor is crisp and defined. The malt flavor is slightly subdued but has a nice smooth presence. The aroma is dominated by yeasty, fruity, estery aromas with some hop presence. (Can you see the Ace of Spades through the glass?) THIS RECIPE IS FOR 3.3 GALLONS so adjust accordingly for different volumes.
-Stempel Altbier This is an altbier recipe that I formulated after reading Altbier by Horst Dornbusch. This beer turned out very dry and not as bitter as I thought it would be. Next time I brew it I'll double the bittering hops. The malt flavor is nice but subdued, and the aroma is almost non existent.
-Blackberry Copper Ale This was the first recipe I formulated on my own. It has a malty fruity aroma with a blackberry aftertaste. Add 2oz of blackberry extract per 3.3 gallon batch at bottling/kegging. THIS RECIPE IS FOR 3.3 GALLONS so adjust accordingly for different volumes.
-Lautenschlager Lager (Munich Helles) I named this recipe in honor of my friend Joel Lautenschlager because he is Canadian and because Lautenschlager Lager sounds so cool. It is a Munich Helles and is a "crowd pleaser" beer, meaning that even my friends who like BMC will enjoy this beer. At first I did not like this beer because of its delicate flavor/aroma, BUT after a few weeks I learned to enjoy it greatly. After a week in the corny keg this beer was brilliantly clear.
-Snacabale Pale Ale I stumbled onto this recipe almost by accident. I wanted to use up all of my leftover ingredients from other recipes so I just jumbled them all together and this is what turned out. This recipe is awesome! It tastes kind of like what a Pilsner brewed with ale yeast should taste like. The wonderful flavor of Tettnang hops shines through, and the finish is definitely hoppy. The next time I brew this I will first-wort-hop the Tettnang hops to bring out the flavor some more. THIS RECIPE IS FOR 3.3 GALLONS so adjust accordingly for different volumes.
