Default Need Info for my 1st batch


So I'm brewing my first batch of beer and I'm just looking for some information that might help with my brewing process. I'm brewing a 1 gallon batch btw. Looking to make it a real hoppy, bitter beer!! Here is my ingredients:
1 # 2 row
.25 # crystal
1 oz centennial hops
1 oz cascade hops
1 oz Australian galaxy hops
Us 5 yeast
Cat remember the amount of golden light DME but it's a proper amount
Irish moss

Also how much water should I use during the brewing process? Like how much should I use when steeping an how much should I add once I'm finished steeping?

You might consider looking at the stickie in the beginner's section on how to brew your first extract recipe.

In general the stickies are great places to start and will usually answer very question you'll raise

I would use a calculator like the one on brewers friend or beer smith, plug in all your ingredients and see what you end up with and then adjust the amounts to tailor to your desired taste. There is also a boil size on it so you can adjust that as well.

Also as far as steeping you use the full amount that will be in your boil. So say you are doing a gallon batch you'll need around a gallon and a half, steep with 1.5 gallons, bring to a boil, add DME and start timing your boil and doing your hop additions.

It would be an extract. Your steeping the grains for color and a little flavor. You'll put the grains in a steeping bag, steep them at around 155 degrees for 15-30 minutes depending on what you want to accomplish. Use the calculator on brewers friend and play with it until you get what you want. Also I'd go to walmart and pick up a little digital kitchen scale. It will really help when measuring out your ingredients and make sure your are exact. Do as much research as you can before you brew too. It will really help. There are tons of videos from northern brewer on YouTube that will break it down step by step.
