Batch sparging. I got a late start and it will be dark in 2 hours.

Keeping drinking that Stone and it will get dark a lot sooner.

Sparging means rinsing. Batch sparging is still rinsing. (All though maybe slightly less efficient)

"Sparging is the process of rinsing the fermentable sugars from the mash and collecting wort for the boil."

Not sure where the "truly" bit comes in.

Enjoy your Brewing. I think It is almost as enjoyable as drinking the stuff.

Now I want a bacon Butty.

Just a bit of an old joke, not meant to be taken too seriously, kind of in the vein of "I don't care if it is quicker and more effective, it isn't traditional so it must be evil."

Bit like the glass plastic thing.

We should all make the wort then wait for the wild yeast to start us off.

Have you been tempted to eat the grain yet. I couldn't resist last time and had a spoon full. I couldn't wait for my first gravity check so I could drink the stuff. warm, sweet, sticky and oooooh so tasty.

I think I may go take a gravity reading now.

Isn't that the truth?! I have a batch going now and I can't wait to get it on tap. I sample the gravity every day and it is tasting very nice.

This smoked grain thing is intriguing. I do like Lapsong Souchong (sp?) which is smoked tea (although they use pine I believe). It would be fun to experiment by smoking some grain in the future, I smoke lots of meats so the grains would be fun. Not for everyone (smoky beer that is), that is for sure. It would hold up really well to a nice steak huh?

Half hour into the boil and the Warrior hops are so strong I can hardly taste smoke in the wort.

BTW, I put the whole 6 pounds of smoked malt into the mash. All or nothing baby, all or nothing.

I think this is going to be a difficult beer to drink a lot of. However, after a few pints of the smoked porter you could barely notice the smoke anymore, so hopefully this is a good enough IPA to be quaffable in large amounts. Desertbrew, your recipe is under serious pressure here.
