    Well, a day late but Brewed my first Hefeweizen, looks good. Overshot my numbers by a little
    and collected an extra 2L of wort... Should be good though, trying to control ferm temps with a

    So I stirred while bumping up to mash out temp and I squeezed like crazy. I had my brew house
    efficiency set to 65% and I pretty much hit my OG. I was aiming for 1.059 and I got 1.058.

    So I finally settled on a recipe. 6kg MO with 4 roughly 40g additions of Cascade at 60, 30, 10

    know about...

    I've done a number of continuously hopped IPAs. I've come to the conclusion that any hop
    addition 30 mins or later does not really add much beyond general bitterness. It's also a bit
    of a pain...!My c...

    Seems a bit high on the total water, I would suggest closely monitoring the volume in the
    kettle as you boil, check after 45 minutes and you will know where your heading. Crank it up,
    or extend the bo...

    Yea, I'll probably go that route eventually but for now I want to figure out what the base malt
    tastes like while making a decent IPA.
