Highly, highly recommend this recipe. Many people popped their all grain cherry with this recipe.

In terms of technicality, in process most of them are the same. Mash for x amount of time at y temp, sparge to achieve z gallons, then follow a hopping schedule.

Don't do something that requires major water chemisty adjustment, like an IPA...No decoction mashes or stuff like that...

Honestly, I would have to say the Biermuncher's Centennial Blond is a great and simple recipe to do for your first all grain...It's one of my favorite brews I have ever done. I've done it twice, and posting now I decided to brew it again over the holidays.

If you like it a little hoppier, I boosted the Ibus up only 4 points I really liked it.

I thought about putting the Schlitz High Gravity VSL clone recipe up but didn't think it would be a great idea.

I'm looking to pop my all grain cherry as well. What would be the mash and sparge water amounts and temps for the centennial blond?
