Thanks, I haven't done one before so I thought I'd try when there is as much grain as this. Thinking I might even split it into one gallon batches and experiment with additional flavors, yeasts, etc.

How did your parti-gyle beer turn out? What was the gravity and volume of what you collected? I'm thinking of doing the same when I brew this.

Thanks for the tip! I hadn't heard of anyone using either baking soda or Epsom salt, so I was a little surprised to see it as an option on the calculators.
