I forgot I did buy a small cooler around batch ~80 to get my partial mash thing going. That was a nice step into all-grain.

I made about 100 extract / steeping grain beers before switching to all-grain. I got my hops, yeast, and cleanliness down in that time. The all-grain jump is fun, just more equipment, more...

Munich should be mashed, as the starch is not converted like crystal malts. Technicially Melanoidin malt should be mashed too.

You can easily make change from steeping to mash with a small...

The beer has held up well, very...

I'll add that hop pellets should be cautiously used in a keg and ALWAYS in a bag. Aside from clogging the poppet valve, hop pellets will sink without any weights. My experience is they then will...

The reason I suggest the corn sugar is because you cannot control the mash temperature of malt extract, so you cannot control the fermentability. It's fairly well agreed most malt extract is mashed...

I would sub in 0.5 to 0.75 lbs of corn sugar in place of some extract. This will help dry the beer out some.

If you're doing extract only, no grains, use the Light DME, not ultralight.

I dry hop about 7 days into the process, usually the main fermentation is completed, so you won't lose a lot of aroma due to blow off of CO2. I dry hop directly into the primary fermenter, in a...

You can make this recipe *fairly* close with extract and steeping grains by removing the Munich malt and steeping the Carafoam, Caramel 60, and Melanoiden malt.

Add maybe 1/4 to 1/2 pound of...

You SHOULD get a bottling bucket, it's not very expensive. Be sure to use PBW on it and the fermenter after the beer is bottled to clean everything well.

I actually ignored the IBU's for the beer (there is no "range" when you're cloning a beer) and this beer is focused on late hop additions.

However, I did use FWH on my software to predict the 0.75...
