Recipe Share - Historic Brews
« on: May 19, 2019, 09:23:28 PM »
I don't know how much interest there is in recipes from the past... some over 100 years old. But just in case you are interested here is a sampling of some that I have collected from Ron Pattinson's blog, Shut Up About Barclay Perkins http://barclayperkins.blogspot.com.

The first is a pale ale from Scotland. The Scottish brewers jumped on the Pale Ale bandwagon very early and even took pains to "Burtonize" their brewing water. 1851 William Younger XP

The second is from one of the smaller breweries in England, Lovibond. Ran by the man who developed an accurate color-meter to ensure consistency in his beers. This is a Mild Ale the way they brewed it before Mild became dark, low ABV and low IBU. 1864 Lovibond XX.

Next is one that I just brewed a week ago and is still in primary fermentation... an 1880 Whitbread Porter. Porter was the most popular beer in all of England and Whitbread was one of the major producers.

Finally an early version of Fullers London Pride. This is one that is still being made today. However the modern day recipe is much different than this early version. 1958 Fullers London Pride.

If you find this useful I can post more.

Thanks very much for the recipes.  I've read Ron's blog on and off for a few years, but never tried one of the recipes.

Kevin, I appreciate you posting these. I am also one interested in brewing traditional beers vs beers that meet modern style guides. However, I am using BS3 mobile and I?m not real savvy on how to import a .bmsx file. I do have BS2 on a laptop. That may be the way to go then place the recipe in the cloud and access in on the iPad that way. Any pointers on importing into BS3 mobile?

I only have a couple of recipes shared in the cloud and only one from the list posted here. The IBSt is the most recent I've made and is the original Imperial Russian Stout brewed in 1848 by Barclay Perkins.
