  • Started extract brewing back in the early 90's, from a startup kit at a LHBS. Been wanting to go AG for years, and finally jumped in with both feet in April 2009. Bought a 10 gal. boil kettle and converted a 10 gal. Igloo orange cooler with a false bottom for my mash tun. Been brewing an AG brew every month, and loving the new results. Recently upgraded again to a brewstand and 10-gal batches!

    IMHO, I do not think you will have any problem with bitterness intensity. Your 5-min Topaz
    addition will contribute the most isomerized alpha-acids, or bitterness.I think you will have
    hop intensity i...
