Hey all, my ingredients came in today for the posted Imperial Hellfire 06.06.06 Ale. I have a few questions before i brew.
First of all... i got the ingredients for an extract recipe. it called for 5lbs of light DME. for all the extract kits that i have bought and made so far, they all used liquid extract. do i use the DME the same way as the liquid? just add it to the wort after the grain has steeped, and the boild with the hops for an hour?
secondly... how much water should i use in the initial boil? 2.5 like most other recipies?
lastly... how long do i steep the grains? should i just add all the grains to one big muslin bag and let them steep for 45 mins? 1 hr? there are like 7 different grains, so is it okay for me to just throw them in one big grain back and call it good?
thanks for any input. i'm hoping this is in the correct forum for me to get some answers.
