OK - so I am done. Used the stovetop method. This was my first AG - and going to be my second as well - wanna se if I can duplicate it in two weeks time. Got an OG of 1.060.
Only added 1 qt of water to fulfill fermenter goal of 5.25 gals.
Used 3 gals to mash, 3.25 to strike.
In swamp cooler now, dosed with some 1275 Thames Valley Ale yeast.
Predictions on end product?
