10-22-11: First batch with mash/lauter tun. Bought today at Jims. Also bought new HLT - stainless steel.
Mash schedule: Mashed in at 130*. Added grains and rested at 122* for 30 minutes. Added hot water, and brought to 152*. Lest rest for 1 hour. Temp dropped 3* to 149. Sparged over about 15 minutes with water at 178*. Boiled per schedule.
Once boil was done and wort was cooled, pitched yeast (started for 1 hour in wort). OG: 1.071 Pitched yeast.
Just tried this recipes with some minor changes (hops used in dry hoping and no grains of paradise). The taste is amazing however i made a blunder, i reduced the recipe to make 2.5 gallons but ended up with 4 gallons so it is very light on the alcohol content (i didn't measure gravity in that i do not have the tools to do so). I hope to try again with a higher grain bill in order to achieve the full effect. Thanks for the recipe.
Glad you liked it! I just brewed version 6.0 of this yesterday. I also dropped the Grains of Paradise a few versions ago. I'll post an updated version soon.
