I am planning my first attempt at a light, all grain session ale using the ingredients I have on hand. Now I was not planning on doing an all grain batch, but I found a very excellent post on improved stove top brewing
so I went shopping. Now I am the proud owner of an insulated 6.5 gallon aluminum pot.
I plan to brew using this method
. I was originally planning small trial batch for my first All grain, based off my old and very tiny 2 gallon kettle so I have a slightly limited grain bill, but I think it could still work if I can get a decent efficiency (I am assuming 60%).
Here is the recipe:
5.0lbs of Pale 2-row
1.5lbs of rolled oats
1.0lbs of honey (added at last 20 minutes of boil)
1oz of Cluster @ 60min
Now if I do not have to drive down to the HBS I would rather not, but if this recipe is going to fail I will make the trip.
