All grain - need to concentrate the wort.

Brewing today and dumping onto a yeast cake of WLP004 I have been using for my irish blonde, first real all grain batch today... can't wait to see how it turns out!

Just finished the sparge waiting on the boil, looks more brown than I expected. Just a faint tint of red.

This is my first official all grain so I am going on like nothing is wrong. If I need to do something please somebody stop me

EDIT: Well it did turn a nice garnet/ruby color once cooled, but like a dumbass I got so excited about it that I forgot the basics. I failed to pay attention to the volume and just went ahead doing what I normally do during an extract... ended up with 6.5 gallons at 1.045 - any thoughts? Should I go back and add some DME to make up for it? I figured a lb of DME in a quart of water should be enough to bring it up to par. Help, thoughts, input appreciated... I just want to make sure its not going to taste watered down or anything.

I believe the consensus is generally to not modify the beer, as it messes with the malt/hops balance. It will simply be lighter, more quaffable beer!

If it's at 1.045, it should still make a great beer.

I just brewed this yesterday as a no-chill. Pre-boil and first runnings were a deep, rich red-brown. I'm looking forward to seeing what the final product ends up like!

The "winter warmer" Pumbaa suggested (same recipe but adding 3lbs honey) looks like it's gonna turn out great. I brewed it back in April and I'll be bottling this weekend. Ended up being around 8.5% ABV and has the same taste plus the alcohol feel. I'll wait and take this to x-mas parties this winter. Definitely not something I want to keg...that would be bad news!

I just brewed this yesterday, with a few minor alterations.

1) An extra pound of Vienna due to what I thought was low efficiency, but ended up with an OG of 1.066 anyways.

2) Boiled 90 minutes to achieve 5.5 gallons of wort, which means the fuggles boiled for 90 and the goldings for 15.

3) Pitched two packets of Nottingham.

The color looked awesome and I can't wait to try it!

anyone got a quick Extract conversion or a PM with at most 3# of grain? my little baby cooler can't handle more than 3# of grain. would that still be considered a PM?

Just wanted to share a couple photos of the final product. Besides looking beautiful, it's delicious. There's a lingering sweetness that I'm really enjoying.





Excuse the lack of head: the carbonation is off because I opened the bottle last night.
