    Hi all, I would like to make this my first all-grain brew. I apologize in advance for the noob
    question, but what volume is this recipe intended for? The reason I ask is because when I added
    it to Be...

    fermentation ...

    Looking at your hop schedule, you have plenty of hops added for bittering, flavor, and aroma in

    commented, hop...

    Just went to go stop the stir plate and put the starter in the fridge. The starter actually
    come out of the flask. It is a big 2L flask. I started with 100 grams of DME and topped off to
