Recipes by style

A few words about the recipes : I tend to have good extraction efficiency with my BIAB setup especially with low gravity beers (which I most often brew) so the amount of malt I use may seem a bit low. They are also given as percentages so that anyone brewing the recipes can change the amount of malt used to get the desired OG with their own gear. I usually add water before cooling to reach the desired gravity so the amount of water stated is the one that I BIAB mash with. If you use the recipe the amounts of water should be corrected to the equipment used.
