My very first, all grain attempt after getting my Barley Crusher in the mail. That crank is harder than I thought it would be!!
Anyway, I used Promash for my recipe at first, but a few things were off. Mainly, I feel I used WAYY too thin a mash. I also panicked early on, as my pre-boil SG was 1.04 !! This made me have a minor heart attack, and I thought I screwed things up. So, I did my 60 minute boil, and at flame out I added some honey to boost my SG. Well, I ended up with a higher OG than I had planned in the first place.
What I learned: Pay attention to mash water amounts.
Anyway, long story short I extrapolated the results into beersmith and I think what you will see below is actually what I did. I am looking forward to this beer when it will be ready. The only yeast I had was Coopers Ale (better dry yeast on order now for next batch), but given my 157 F mash temp the body will be *quite* full... maybe too much so. Here she is, anyone make something similar?
