    forget about it.

    Thanks for the advice. I should mention that I am going for something very easy to drink with a
    very mild hop profile - especially after brewing a large RyeIPA last weekend. Any more advice
    on the hop...

    I am working on formulating my first recipe for my first all grain brew. We have decided to go
    with the BIAB method because it seems to be the most straight forward way of brewing all grain.
    I have us...
