Default First All Grain brew tomorrow, need some help!

Its been a while since I have been around here, during busy bike season I cant get much brewing time in. Anyways, I finally finished my mashtun and built up a recirculating immersion wort chiller. I am so excited to use my new toys! I still have a few necessities, such as a pot, as that is very essential. I am looking for help preparing, and help figuring out a good first recipe. I want something simple. I am thinking a stout, as the cool season is coming. I have no idea where to begin picking out ingredients. Im sure the local folks would be more than happy, but I am just looking for suggestions here as well.

I also am wary of the process, I have read much about it, plan on doing batch sparging and have a good feel, but if someone could tell me where to source information about ingredients to use, temps to mash, water amounts etc. I have a demo copy of beersmith, but it seems to not work so well. It said something like 262 lbs grain for a 10gal 1.111OG.

I would be more than happy to give you a recipe as well as post how to. What kind of stout you looking for? Sweet, dry or oatmeal? Can you give me a commercial example?

I have no commercial brews that come to mind. I am hoping something sweet, but still dry like dark chocolate. I really would like to do an oatmeal, actually, yeah, an oatmeal recipe would be superb!

Here is an example on BrewSmith. If you have any inventory, I could plug that in instead of what came up. Like hops or yeast.....whatever. I am assuming you have a pot for full boils and a 10gallon igloo cooler. Let me know if it all makes sense. Personally, I would leave out the dry-hop and put in 1.5 oz fuggles in the boil and that is all as far as hops. That gives you about 22 IBU's. If you like hoppier, let me know, but in a stout, I like very little hops.

A pound of roasted barley will probably be overkill on the roast. How bout a 1/2 pound roast and then a 1/2 pound of chocolate malt.

Lose the chinook and use East Kent Goldings or Fuggles.

Add 1.25 quarts of water per pound of grain for your initial mash. I'd suggest a 163-165 strike temp to get your initial mash at around 150-152-ish.

Mash for 60 minutes and then begin draining after recirculating the first 4-5 quarts.

Get your sparge water to 170 degrees and add the same amount, stir sligthly, let rest for 10 minutes and drain/recirculate again. Plan on a third sparge with enough water to get you to a 6.5 gallon preboil volume.

Boil down to 5.25 gallons, chill to 70 degrees and pitch your yeast.

Good luck. We're all counting on you.

I would do 3/4 Chinook for 60 instead of more for less time. Took Bier's suggestions as well.
