Default Help with getting some ingredients.

I have found a recipe that i want to use for my first brew, im just looking for some help on what i need to buy to accomplish it. Links to some site would be awesome. The recipe is posted below, Thanks.



6.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract (3.0 SRM) Dry Extract 70.6 %
1.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 11.8 %
0.50 lb Carafoam (2.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
0.50 lb Melanoiden Malt (20.0 SRM) Grain 5.9 %
0.75 oz Citra [12.40%] (First Wort Hop) Hops 12.5 IBU***
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (60 min) Hops 25.1 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (15 min) Hops 12.4 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (10 min) Hops 9.1 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (5 min) Hops 5.0 IBU
1.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (1 min) Hops 1.1 IBU
3.00 oz Citra [12.40%] (Dry Hop 10 days) Hops -
SafAle English Ale (DCL Yeast #S-04)
or
Wyeast 1968

Beer Profile Estimated Original Gravity: 1.066 SG
Estimated Final Gravity: 1.018 SG
Estimated Color: 9.0 SRM
Bitterness: 65.2 IBU

Steep the grains at in the mid 150s for 45-60 minutes. It is assuming a 5 gallon batch, 3 gallon - 60 minute boil, and adding the extract at the beginning. If you can do a full boil you probably wouldn't need the extra oz at 60minutes.

All those ingredients should be available from any decent homebrew store. You may get Carapils instead of Carafoam, but the only difference there is the producer of the malt. Citra is sometimes in short supply though.

Equipment wise - get a standard single-stage fermentation homebrew kit. Your local shop should steer you in the right direction. I do recommend using a Better Bottle as a fermentor, but that's just personal preference.

Given the nature of this recipe, I would:

-Switch to WLP001, Wyeast 1056, or Safale US-05 yeast
-Only use the Citra late in the boil + dryhop (consider a different hop for early on)
-Add 1 lb. of sugar late
-Nix the Melanoidin and Carafoam completely

...And personally, I would mash the Munich.
