ttokar, I did the same this weekend! First batch of all grain in that hot south Texas sun! Went well except for a chiller failure that turned it in to a no chill batch. Just hosed the outside of the keggle for a while and straight in to the ale pail. Pitched US-05 Monday afternoon and its bubbling heavily through the blow off. Can't wait to try it!

This must be a popular brew in Texas! It was my second AG batch in the hot Houston sun. No less the day after attending the complete and utter failure that was the Houston Beer Fest. But i'm proud to report my batch is fermenting away. I'm hoping to have a short turnaround on this one.

How do I determine how much water to mash and sparge with?

Just plug the recipe in beersmith or similar. The program will do the calculations for you.

A quick and dirty method. Multiply the total grain bill by 1.5. That's your mash amount. Drain that and whatever your total boil volume is, subtract what you got out of the mash, divide the remainder and sparge twice more with that amount. I did this several times and it worked well but whether it's a proper method I don't know.

I brewed this as my second AG, just put it in the keg for force carb and conditioning. I tried to use Beersmith to calculate my water volumes, but I did something wrong and ended up boiling off way too much water. My OG was 1.052 and Notty chopped it down to 1.004! It's a much bigger beer then I had originally planned for at over 6%, but a sample after 3 weeks in the primary tasted fantastic. Going to have to be careful swinging back pints of this one. Can't wait for it to carb and chill for a couple more weeks, thanks for the recipe!

There is a program out there called BrewTarget, which has this recipe as one of the default recipes in the program.
It's designed by a HBT member called rocketman768 and it's free and open source.

If you don't have a brewing program yet, you can check this program out, http://brewtarget.sourceforge.net/

Best of luck.

Brewed this AG - BIAB a while back, added some Cherry extract and vanilla beans during boil and a but more in the secondary. Tried it last night.....the extract unfortunately has that medicine taste. Bummer. i should have heeded the warnings I saw regarding that.

It's drinkable, but I'm already planning on doing this again and sticking to the straight recipe.

Just ordered the ingredients for the extract recipe last night! Going to be brewing this one next weekend hopefully! I'm thinking about splitting this batch and letting half sit on some strawberries for a few week or two.

Only a week in the bottle and this brew is very tasty. I brewed, let it sit in the primary for 2 weeks and bottled and this is the clearest, cleanest beer I have ever brewed.

Thanks for the recipe BM. Many gallons of this brew to come!
