Thanks for the help! Looks like I'll have to go back to the store to pick up some more grains and extract. Maybe I'll be able to do a double batch.
I want to do the partial mash, and here's a update of the recipe. I noticed that since I'm mashing 5 total pounds of malt, I won't be able to add as much extract late in the boil, and so I'll have to boil 2 oz of hops for the entire 60 minutes. That makes sense, right? Here's the recipe:
4 lb Vienna Malt (partial mash)
1 lb Munich Malt (partial mash)
2.25 lb Pilsner LME
3.00 lb Munich LME (15 minute boil)
2 oz Hallertau @ 4.3% (60 minute boil)
I've assumed a 50% partial mash efficiency for this. I don't really know what to expect as I've never done this before. Also, will I be able to mash 5 pounds of malt in a 5 gallon pot?
Will boiling all the hops for that long give me too much hop aroma in the beer? I'm really looking to make this Oktoberfest to style - I've been craving it since I ran out of my New Glarus Staghorn last October.
Thanks a lot for the help!
