Default First all grain done!!!

so I just finished my first all grain, only took me like an hour longer than a normal brew day. I am definably more tired though. Brewed the west coast blaster from brewing classic styles. Beer smith gave me a different OG than BCS and i hit the beer smith OG dead on the money for 70% efficiency. not bad for my first time I would say

Well done! All grain definitely makes for a long, tiring brew day but it's sooo worth it.

Definitely, good exercise too. Lot more lifting with all the water and such and the requisite full boil.

use beer smith seriously, I hit all of my numbers right on. also, prepare more water than you think you will need. I only needed ~7 and ended up heating up 10 with ~ a gallon left
and prepare to be tired . I am usually pretty tired after a brew day but this one is just a little worse, plus for some reason my sink leaked all over my floor when i was cleaning up so that added an extra half hour of fun
