Actually, it's a 5 gallon kettle. I guess I didn't enter it correctly in to beer smith. I wish I had the capability to do a full wort boil, but I only have an electric stove top right now and that...

Awesome, good advice. Thank you!

Also, when bringing down the hops for the beginning additions, should I be shooting for the same bitterness of 67.9 IBUs through adjusting the late additions? ...

I may have used the wrong word. I plan on putting the milled grain in to a muslin bag, and let it sit in about 1 gallon to 1.5 gallons of sub 160F water for about 30 minutes. Should I do that for...

Just to clarify, I'm going to steep the grains pre-boil and I split the extract addition to raise the ABV and prevent caramelization.

That's beer you're tasting. I think the problem must be that you don't like the taste of beer.

I'm only kidding.

Thanks!

Have you tried putting 3/8' directly in to the bung, and does that work well?

Blow-off Question

I’ve seen people use the base piece of a 3-piece airlock to make a blow-off hose. They simply slip a 1/2” ID piece of vinyl tubing over the middle cylinder that comes out of it. I was considering...
