HAH! The grain bill for a 5 gallon recipe cost me all of 12 bucks! I think it'll be the best thing you did!!!

I used:
6#'s
2#
1#
and got Suck Efficency.
the lighter grain bill should work fine with a better system.

By the Way....I Tapped this last night....Is it really even Beer?

That should work fine. Make sure to give your mash a good 90 minutes to get full efficiency and a high attenuation rate.

I transferred this one to secondary Monday night with a little bit of gelatin added, although I don't think the gelatin is necessary. It looked and tasted great. The big surprise was my gravity reading was at 1.005! I used Wyeast 1056 but did not expect it to ferment that much! I know my temperature dropped some during the mash so that may account for the lower final gravity.

The low final gravity plus a slightly higher OG (boiled off a little too much) puts mine at about 5.6% ABV which was a little higher than anticipated but definitely not something I'm worried about. I'm getting impatient and may keg this batch tomorrow... I can't wait to try a glass!

Edit:

I just noticed that the original post said the final gravity was 1.005... I am reassured though. Tomorrow night, the beer will be kegged...

That's what I did, but I forgot to halve the amount of hops. Better luck next time. I tell you what though, after two weeks in bottles it was ready to go and another week or so in refridgeration made it incredible!!!
