Looks like a good brew. There is no better smell than freshly crushed grain.

Is that a turkey fryer your using as your heat source and kettle? If so, what size is the kettle, and what BTU is the burner. I am tring to decide between a turkey fryer assembly or buying a burner and pot seperatly (which is more $$$)

I got the turkey fryer when I was starting back into homebrewing with some partial mash recipes. Now it just heats up my strike and sparge water.

The day I was going to brew my first all grain, I realized I needed a larger pot, we have a discount grocery store here that sells large stock pots normally used for making tamales, well I make beer and it's 13 gallons. I paid $40 for it.

I have the burner stand that came with the fryer and another square one that I use for the larger pot. The burners looks to be about the same size, I don't know how many BTUs though. I believe it is the standard turkey fryer size, which is not that much I think.

Buying the components separate is going to run more, but you will probably get a better product.

I ended up at 1.095 for my OG with 5.25 gallons. The recipe was for 5 gallons and I also shorted myself 14oz of the main 2-row, I read 16lbs, not 16lb 14oz.

Anyways, I wish I had a extra pound of grain to throw in on brew day, but the recipe callled for a OG of 1.096, so it was close enough.

I am planning on bottling this one and aging until next winter or when it starts to cool down again, usually in late November here.

I am having a beer and wine tasting party this weekend and will open a bottle of this RIS and see what people think.

It is a little young at about 3 months now but we shall see.

This is a blind taste test party too so people are not going to know what hit them when they taste this 10%/100 IBU dark water
