ended up making a starter, so no worries about the yeast. what volume sparge do you end up using. sorry for all the questions but new to the all grain thing.
thanks
Buck

I don't recall offhand, but here's an easy way to decide...after you runoff the mash, measure how much you have in the kettle. Subtract that from your boil volume. The answer you get is how much sparge water to use.

i made this recipe using WLP002 and Liberty instead of Mt Hood becouse in my LHBS they where out of it, i hit an OG 1.073 and after 10 days i took a sample today and it was 1.010. I'll wait for the weekend to dry hop with Colombus for more 5 days, like the spicyness!

Thanks for the recipe, Denny. Brewed this Tuesday, a little skeptical about the hop choices... until I got of whiff of that first wort hop blending together with the run-off! Smelled excellent the whole hour of boiling, super-excited to try this out! We emulated this recipe every step of the way in your direction... from using your yeast to even doing our grain absorption calculations from your own webpage... every stat turned out spot-on! Cheers!

I am planning to brew this on Monday. I am pretty excited, I've got a nice starter going and some new gear to try out too. I've used 1450 before and really enjoy it so I look forward to see what it does in a recipe designed for it. Anyway, I have never done a mash out before and have a question. Does this take the place of the sparge water? I get the part where I strike with 6.5 gallons of water to get to 153 but then what? Do I use the amount of water I would use to sparge to raise the temp for mash out and then use those runnings to get to my preboil volume? I am using a 10 gallon beverage cooler with the stainless braid by the way. I also have beersmith on my pc and a bunch of apps on my phone to figure out what temps I need to hit. Thanks for any help!

Are you fly sparging or batch sparging? If you are batch sparging, you do not need to perform a mash out because you will be getting the wort up to a boil immediately after the quick sparging process and those high temps. will halt any further conversion activity.

Have fun. This beer is very tasty. I've made it twice.

Pacman is OK, but Ringwood NEVER!!!! Pacman will leave the beer a bit thin, but the taste will be fine. Ringwood will totally dickchimp the flavor.

I used to do a "pseudo mash out" with this beer, but it was really just a pre mash runoff addition of water to even out the volumes of the runnings. These days I just do a thinner mash (1.6-1.75 qt./lb.) and don't bother with adding water before I run off the mash.
