n240sxguy,
I just put a 50 lb sack of ground 2-row into buckets. I used 11 pounds out of it and it just fit into 2 5-gallon buckets. There was maybe room for 1 more lb. So call it 4lbs/gallon ground weight.

What was your brix/OG?

Well that confirms my fears and my math. Looks like I used about 2.5X the amount of 2-row I needed. 33lbs by my math. By far my biggest F..k up in brewing ever. Brix at about the 4 gallon mark were 25.5. Preboil 16. Post boil 18. I added three gallons of distilled water to dilute it and still had an OG of 1.052 going into the fermenter.

It will still be beer and taste good.

I just got it kegged two days ago. I had roughly 12 gallons at 5.5%. It is good. I think I'm gonna dry hop one of the kegs though. I have some cascade pellets. What would be a good amount to use? 2oz?

Knocked my third batch of this out last night for a beerfest in October. I just got a new mill, and I forgot that when I did the recipe the last time it was accounting for my LHBS's crappy crush and resulting efficiency in the mid 50s. As a result, instead of coming out with about 5.25 gal. of 1.055ish (I like this one bumped up a bit anyway), I wound up with 5.25 gal. of 1.069. First time I have had to top one off with water. Added about a gallon to get back in the mid 1050s. Also calling this one my Simarillo as I am comfortable with the base recipe now and will start playing with it going foward, subbing out Simcoe and Amarillo on this one.

Just ordered the stuff to brew a ten gallon all grain batch, question would it be ok to do a 1oz for each hop addition ? Or would I be better of dry hopping with the extra? Ordered 2 oz for each hop


And what temp for the sparge water? Thanks

I'd stick with the original recipe and stay away from dry hopping. Otherwise, you have a totally different beer.

As much as I like this beer, I dry hopped mine the 2nd time I made it, and enjoyed it even more.
