So, I tried to make an all-grain belgian golden strong using 2-row, table sugar, saaz hops and
Wyeast 1388. I had some issues with mash temperature being a bit too high but then it ended up

Jeff, I brewed that same thing a week ago and I'm already dropping the temp tonight. I ended up
using 2-Row instead of Pilsener malt (all grain) because I had it on hand. My OG was low
(1.076) but a f...

Ok, so the mashtun worked AMAZINGLY well last night. I prefilled it in the tub with hot water
(≈ 120°F) and dumped it out (probably a little too early, about 30 mins) before adding
the strike wa...

ok, so boiling point is 212°F.I found the right calculator in BeerTools Pro. For 29.5 lbs of

Brew Your Own makes a good point about mash thickness. It's harder to dissolve more sugars into
a concentrated wort so I'm going go for more efficiency with a less thick wort.I'm going to do

scinerd,I've heard that 1/3 gallon per lb of grain is a good ratio. If I do 1.5 quarts, that's
.375 gallons versus .33. Your calculations give me 11 gallons where mine gives me 9.75

Nice, thanks guys. That makes a lot more sense. After I found the appropriate calculator in
BeerTools Pro, I got the same calculations. Plan on doing the 2 part batch sparge as suggested

Ok guys, I need some help.I'm going to go for another IPA, this time a 10 gallon batch. Don't
worry, I'm splitting it between friends. I think the larger amount will help my mashtun not
lose as much h...
