Here's what I have; I have all the right ingredients, except the supplier doesn't carry Phoenix hops, instead recommended Kent Goldugs (?), but suggested doubling up on it. So I bought that.

I'm thinking of doubling the recipe, or close to, because I have a ten gallon fermentor, then kegging it in two five gallon soda kegs. As soon as I think I have it right, I'll do the same thing again, while enjoying the first batch. I had to buy 55 lbs. of the Maris so the next batch should be much cheaper.

Pretty excited to do my first batch of all grain. Cheers, here's to not messing it up.

I have a question. I want to brew 10 gallons, but as this recipe is for 5.5, I can't simply double it can I? I have a ten gallon fermentor.

Doubling (in general) is fine. If you have BeerSmith, I'd advise plugging it in and being sure. BS has a nice conversion tool for scaling recipes up or (God forbid) down.

Thanks, I just doubled the recipe. Took me about 6 hours, not too bad. I thought my first all grain was going to take a lot longer. I need to build a good three tier system for the next batch, but I got it done and it's bubbling away this morning. I added a table spoon of Irish moss, too, about a tablespoon for the last minute.

It's been a while, quite a while since I finished this batch. Sadly I messed something up. I just haven't had time to try again. It came out flat and sweet. I couldn't get a swallow down.

Let us know how this turns out. I'm curious about the wheat, and why.

Ive added the wheat because of what they say over on the blog at KSWbeer.

Quote:
All of their grains are from Great Western, and they use a small addition of wheat.

Just got my AG set up off CL. When I get off in a week , I'm hoping to do this as my 1st AG. Bridgeport IPA is about my favorite commercial beer.
Cheers,
Tom
