Well, we did our first all-grain with this recipe yesterday. Beautiful day, and all-in-all, everything went as planned. When I went to the LHBS, I accidentally got 1/2 lb of chocolate malt instead of 1/4, and they guys there recommended US-05 instead of Nottingham, so I made those two substitutions.
Our mash temp was hit right on the head, and got an OG a bit high of 1.060. I assume this is due to the extra quarter pound of grain and perhaps a little higher efficiency. Any input?
Anyhow, it's in the carboy bubbling away. Nice krausen developing, despite a TON of sediment. This one's definitely going to take a trip to secondary island in a week or so.
