Default My procedure, on batch #9

I steeped me grains for 20 mins @ 153° then boiled for an hour. I couldn't tell you what temp. Boiling temp, as I did not think to measure the boil. I threw my hops in through the whole boil as well. Even the cool down. I rehydrated my yeast as I was brewing a gal. My grain bill is as follows.
2lbs. Of 2 row
1lb. Of Crystal 80 L
.25 lb. Of chocolate
1 oz. of Chinook hops.
(love the smell of chinook)
And fermenting as we speak. I'm just curious if any pointers that could help me. Anything I may or may have not done. My goal is a creamy stout.

Is there some DME or LME in there? That's not enough for a 5 gal batch - what is your batch size? Also, way too much crystal malt.

I would change the title of this thread before you get sued....


#justsaying


EDIT:
Did you boil the grains?
How do you not measure water, how do you know your getting proper conversion?
Do you take gravity readings?

OK - one gallon - got it.
1. Too much Crystal Malt, considering you'd (probably) use less for 5 gallons of stout.
2. I like Chinook too, but that's going to probably be a lot more bitter than the stouts you're used to. Traditional stouts, anyway.
3. You'll get creamy from oats, but I don't see that in your recipe. Next time, use some oats.
4. Yeast - what yeast did you use. I'd suggest something along the lines of Wyeast 1084.

+1 on some gravity readings and such.

Took my geavity reading @ 1.055 did not boil my grains, but my wort, did not measure temp of boil, measured water @ 2 gal. Left me a perfect gallon of wort. I have no clue if I was getting a proper conversion. How does one measure? Title changing, think your right in the suing part.

Have oats, just forgot. But I also have lactose. My yeast is Safbrew T58. And yes. 1 oz of hops baby. Oh yeah. How are oats utilized for wort?

Oats are mashed with the grain. Just toss them in. I've never had need to use lactose, so someone else will need to tackle that one.

EDIT: I would have used S-04 rather than T-58, but (like all things brewing) it's your call.
