the reason that I ask is that 0.73 gallons of water seems like a small amount. Do you get all the sugars out with this amount and do you do a small beer with more running of this?

Anyone try this recipe in a 10 gallon mash tun? I don't think it can hold all that grain and water at the same time. Any recommendations for a less space intensive mash schedule?

I might try and do 10g of this sometime soon. That way I can maybe bottle half and keg half. Might be fun that way! just have to recalculate the measurements for the mash schedule which I haven't done before but sure I can figure it out. Looks delicious!

I've only done this with a 10 gallon mash tun and obviously no problem. 5 gallon MT would be pushing things, even at 1.25 qt/lb, especially if your efficiency is much less than 80%. I think you could pull this off, but it will be pretty tight.

The only simple way to be less space intensive would be a thicker mash and going any less than 1.25 qt/lb would probably affect efficiency. Or you could split into two mashes, but that will take alot more time. Another alternative would be to take some of the pilsner out of the mash and make it up with extra light DME in the boil, but leave enough pils for conversion (shouldn't be too hard).

Anyone keg this ever? Or even better, anyone keg and bottle and notice how different they are? I would rather keg this but if it's going to taste a whole lot better then maybe I'll bottle instead. I don't mind letting it bulk age on yeast or whatever for a longer time then the month+ it calls for.
