Yes. I put the hops in with the grains.

Oh man, I'd chalk this batch up to a loss, but you ought to check out one of the basic homebrewing books before you take on your next batch! And go back to extract before making the leap into all-grain. Good luck!

I figure it will come out bad as you say, but I think I'll let it go and see what happens. If it turns out to be bad, so be it; I'll dump it down the drain.

What I plan to do next time is, while reviewing the recipe, write out the steps for myself and number them. Then, as I'm brewing, I'll check-off the steps as I complete each one. My problem with the recipe I used is, although it was written in an understandable manner, the layout was not conducive to being easily followed by a novice. Som minor tweaking and I can redesign the layout to make it easier for me to follow.

Thanks to everyone for your input and not making me feel like a complete idiot! I know boiling is an integral part of brewing, but I guess I got a little too excited and skipped a step... albeit a VERY important step!

See you round!

I'm gonna brew this for the first time. A question on the yeast:
I suppose I could get Denny's if I go to a lhbs that I don't like at all, I think they sell Wyeast. My store sells White Labs and they do have the US05 dry yeast. I've never used it though. The Mr Malty crossover page doesn't list a White Labs crossover for Denny's. What would be a good WL substitute? Or should I go with US05?

I have made it with US05 and the only thing you do not really get is a lot of esters. My latest batch I made with WLP028 Edinburgh yeast just to try something different.

I drank my last bottle of this (brewed 21 months ago, you can find my original post in this thread) and it was still pretty damn good. The original had too much cloves in it. The 21-month old version had the cloves more subdued but then all the other flavors were also more subdued.

Hey I'm not King but I have brewed this recipe several times and always use the brand Grandmas old time original unsulfured molasses.... not sure if this helps you at all but I never have any complaints and the judges seem to like my rendition as well.
