No, when I made it i combined all the hops and divided them up in cups (fairly uniformally--simcoe, warrior, Amarillo) and just made an addition every 7.5 minutes or so across the 90 minute boil.

Was just using what I had on hand. Took a gravity reading yesterday and down to 1.007, for something of an ABV of 6% or so. Had a taste and it definitely had a sharp phenol like flavor with no...

If I am doing a seasonable brew like my all grain pumpkin ale, then I do secondary. Otherwise I skip it.
You can do all your dry hopping in primary, but if saving the yeast, and if you are going...

Well, I guess I should have just went 12# on the grain. Hell, my HBSS the way they package always leaves me with .5 leftover. Lesson learned. Better high OG than low. And less leftovers. Won't...

Ok, I used 11.5 lbs of grain. Did I do good, ending with 6 gal of wort at 1.045? I mean, if I ended with 5.5 gal would I have had my 1.060? How can I calculate what my efficiency would have been?

Yep, crush my own. I used refractometer on unfermented sample. Pre- pich, but stored in fridge. Took a day for me to get my ref. Broke my hydrometer on brew day! That was the long story. ...

Yep, no need to wait. When batch sparging stir, stir, stir. I'd say stir a few minutes, don't idly let it just sit there.

Good point, I once used cold water on a batch sparge (just to try it) and it took my wort temp way down. Took forever to get to boil temp.

Yeah, there is really not too much to the dogfish clone. It's a pretty simple brew. Hardest part is the continuous hopping on the boil
