let me know how it turns out. Also, don't feel bad if you know have the exact same bittering addition. Basically you'll be fine with a nice clean bittering hop like magnum, warrior etc...

Ok, I'm a little confused by this recipe. It says the boil size is 7 gal, but you mash in with 11.42 qt, and mash out with 6.40 qt. That's only 4.45 gal, wheres the other ~3gals coming from?

the 6.4 qt is used to raise the mash temp up to mash out temp. You proceed with either sparging methods from there.

Im going to assume its for the sparge...

a lot of people mash out as their sparge. but some like to have an actual mash out step, then sparge after.

correct, that is probably what I did with this one since it was when I was using a cooler and didn't have the rims going.
