Sorry for the dumb question, but I can't seem to decide amongst these. Was going to get the German Pilsen malt. any suggestions? Making this one for a golf weekend.
I used German

I would love to brew this but I have one question. On AHS, they do not have perle hops, but I have read that both cluster and northern brewer are substitutes. Anyone have a reccomendation for which one to go with? The cluster hops have a slightly lower AA %, whereas the northern brewer hops have a slightly larger AA %.

Thanks.

So does this look okay? I couldn't figure out how to add a half pound on Northern Brewer, so I just added it in the comments which is why it says 3 lbs.

Is a single infusion mash different from a sparge? Should I add about 6.5 to 7 gallons of strike water, let it sit at 151 F, and then no sparge? Lastly, did you go with 1.25qts/lb of grain?

Looks like a plan. Mash with 1.25 quarts per pound. Be sure to boil for 90 minutes.

So I should boil for 30 minutes before adding any hops, correct?

Awesome, thanks. How much sparge water do you normally use? My last question, I promise.

Just racked this to a keg and tried a sample. Came out a bit drier than I expected probably due to mash temp was a little low at 149. Should still be be good for the hot weather we are having right now. Thanks for a good recipe Ed. Next up your house pale ale.
