Batch size: 5.5 gallons
OG: 1.045
Efficiency: 72%

10 oz...

"Thick" meaning decocting and portion of the mash that is , well, thick. In other words don't just scoop out part of the mash from the top (mainly water). Dig down deep and pull out grain with...

I agree. Think there will be a more of a "bitter bite" on your recipe than easy jack has. Go later in the additions. I probably wouldn't use anything more than a 15 minute hop addition. If you do...

Pilsner, Munich helles, saison, kolsch. However all these are yeast specific. I'd go with the us-05 and ferment at cooler end (60*)-this will give you as clean a ferment as possible. Use noble hops-...

Anyone know the carbonation level for this? I've never had it before so I can't guess. Plus I've seen people review this by saying carbonation was lively and sprite, medium, and also on the low...

Old hops- as long as they smell good, and were stored well- should be ok. But only for bittering. Also, IBUs are LOW on this.
