  • Started extract brewing in the mid 1990's. Quit for about 10 years and now I'm back. Doing 5 gallon AG batches. I use an Igloo cooler and do batch sparging. I really really love doing all grain. It's funny you don't realize how much you miss something till you start doing it again. I've gotten several of my friends involved and they love it. If I had a motto I would say brew with friends............Cheers and all that stuff!

    Thanks Yooper, that was my next step but I was wondering if I was missing something. I guess my
    palate is tasting sweet because my brain is telling it that it should be. I will do that.Brian

    2nd the water. Get a copy of Palmer's Water book. There is a lot of information in there but
    the chapter on adjusting water to style is worth its weight in gold. If you get a copy of your
    water report...

    Depending on how bitter you like your IPA's you could go 2 oz of Chinook at 60 mins. Personally
    prefer the Citra for late additions and dry hopping. Would probably use the Galaxy for you late
    addition...

    Just turn it down to 8 psi or so and vent off excess pressure and you should be fine. You can
    always drop it a bit lower and vent off a few times and to low the carb if needed.

    fun.

    I personally use a 10 gallon kettle and do 7 gallon boils. Every system is different but more
    room is always better to prevent boil overs. A full boil is a baby step towards all grain,
    congrats.Brian
