Default Bear Republic: Hop Rod Rye clone

i'm copying the extract recipe out of Brew magazine. it says to steep grains in 2.25 gallons of water. how much does that matter? i normally steep with 4-5 gallons of water

also, theres a .5 oz. Centennial hop addition at 30 minutes. i thought about throwing in an extra .5 oz of Amarillo. no harm, right?

It probably doesn't matter much for steeping grains, but typically you'd use 1.25-2 quarts of water per pound of grain just in case there are grains in there than could/should be mashed. Using less water is generally better for pH also (less risk of tannin extraction), but steeping in a higher volume probably won't matter too much for many steeping grain recipes.

If the recipe uses rye, though, I'd assume it's a partial mash and following the instructions.

it is a partial mash. i'm steeping more grains with this than any beer i've made before. i'm afraid with 3 grain bags the water won't be high enough. i made it 4 gallons. thanks for the help

Using more grain bags is a great idea- but don't go over 2 quarts of water per pound of grain if you want conversion!

8.25 pounds of grain?! That IS a big partial mash! I haven't seen the recipe, but that seems like it'd be darn near a full AG batch!

the magazine doesnt specify for partial mash. i'm not knowledgeable enough to be able to look at a recipe and know when to do a 60 or 90

You can almost always do a 60 minute boil. Very few recipes need more than a 60 minute boil.
