Recipe Formulation

Keywords

Recipe, Formulation, Craft, Styles, Organoleptic, Consistency

What is a good recipe? Your consumer will be the judge.

Description

The reality is that a full course can be designed for recipe formulation alone. This presentation however is addressing and answering the following key questions: What is a recipe? What is the logic behind properly formulating beers and why doing your homework designing recipes is key to success? Are there some guidelines that need to be considered in terms of specifics to the beer style that we intend to do? What are the circumstances for designing or reformulating a beer? What are some of the considerations that we must keep in mind about the raw materials, and the equipment that we will be using. All that being said, the process itself is of great importance and will be discussed. Finally, and possibly one of the most essential point, is to always maintain a customer focused approach. After all, that customer, the ultimate consumer, is the one criteria by which one recipe is judged to be successful or not.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand what a Proper Formulation is
  • Grasp some style considerations
  • Recognize several Ingredients considerations for a recipe
  • Discern among several equipment considerations
