I'm starting to get myself set up for my second brew and I thought I might give an all grain BIAB recipe a go. I've designed it using brew-target. I'm aiming for a simple American style IPA, which is just on the hoppy side of well balanced and is around 5% ABV. I'm aiming to produce a 2 gallon batch and brew target gives me a target boil size of 2.812 gallons to achieve this. Does that sound about right?
So the recipe...
[86%/ 3.52lb] Pale Malt 2 Row (I thought I might use maris otter)
[14%/ 8.82oz] Crystal Malt
I will mash the grains for 1 hour at 154f with the aim of producing a balanced but somewhat dry final beer.
I will boil the wort for 60 mins with
0.212oz Chinook (60mins)
0.141oz Cascade (20mins)
0.141oz Cascade (5mins)
I will also add Irish moss with with 15 minutes to go.
Finally I will ferment this with Safale US-05 yeast for 2 weeks at 66f before bottle conditioning for a further 2 weeks+.
According to brew target this should give me a beer with the following characteristics
I am missing anything? Is this likely to come out tasting ok? I was planning to mash with about 2.3 gallons and then dunk sparge the bag in about half a gallon of water. Does this sound reasonable or is it easier just to suspend the bag and wait till it stops dripping?
Thanks in advance guys!
