Default First All grain batch on Sunday!

So after 4 extract batches I have taken the plunge to all grain. I'm going to be making a pale ale with warrior and citra hops. I have fitted my keggle mash tun with a false bottom and thermometer, and will be boiling in my other keggle. Any suggestions for my first time around?

Don't plan anything after brew day! The first batch will take much longer than you thought.

Expect to only brew and play the rest of the day by ear once you are completely done.

I'd skip bottling on the same day. My first AG brew day went more than 10 hours.

Really, you should plan for flame on as early in the morning as is reasonable, so you're finished at a good time.

My next AG brew day is Monday. I plan on having strike water heating by 10am at the latest.

You should do a search for "mashwater 3.3" it's a great file. I don't have the link handy cause I use my iPhone app. It's great as far as figuring strike water volumes and what not

Depends on the beer, but 10 gal would be a safe bet....

1.25-1.5 quarts per pound of grain. Just google "strike water calculator" and you'll find a few that will help you figure out your temperature. Shoot for 152*F mash temperature unless your recipe states otherwise... you'll probably be a bit low the first time.

Also, throw a kettle full of hot, but not boiling water in your mash tun to warm it up, then drain it, before adding your strike water.
