I would take a wine whip and mix it up real good, and then split it in half and top each half off. Then I'd plan on some dry hopping to compensate for the IBUs lost due to the higher gravity boil.

I just kegged my first all grain batch of this recipe. the hydrometer sample has a plastic taste to it. I looked back thru my notes and I dont see where I added campden tablets. Oh well...it still tastes good, and its still gettin' drunk!

BierMuncher,

This one's been in the primary for about 2 weeks, and fermentation looks about done. I've got a question about how you dry hop and cold condition. Do you dry hop in the secondary at cooler temperatures? Or do you dry hop in the primary, and then cold condition? And what temp do you use for the cold conditioning.

You could dry hop in keg with whole leaf in a bag . Also I liked this without the dry hop.

I bottle, so I've got to either dry hop in the primary or secondary. My original plan was to dry hop in secondary, but then got concerned how cold temps will affect the dry hop results.

I dry hop in the primary but I hear that's a no no. It works for me. : )

I secondary at room temp. I also dry hop in the secondary. Just a preference that has worked very well for me. I find that dry hoping in the primary... Between the trub, huge yeast cake and the hop sludge... Is just a little too messy for me.

Sounds good, thanks for your reply. This came out great the first time I made it a year ago. I've made many upgrades to my brewery since then, so I'm looking forward to this batch.

Hey guys, bought the ingredients today! Same grain bill as BM but a substitution on the hops Cenntenial for Amarillo and a sub. on the yeast US-04 for Kolsch. I am making it this weekend (BIAB) and will give you all an update then. I added an extra pound of Marris Otters for better efficiency, still trying to fine tune my BIABing.
