have been a longtime lurker here and am looking for feedback. I am fairly new to brewing, having done 5 extract batches in the past few months, and am going all grain today.

I hope you can help me with 2 things.
1. Does my recipe look ok?
2. Is it ok to pour my wort after the boil/cooling down-into the carboy i just bottled from yesterday? For sanitation i imediately sealed it up. I left a little of the 6.5% abv alc on top of the yeast/trub to hopefully cut down on infection potential. has anyone done this before? And is it fairly safe to do this?

I was thinking the same thing-that's a big beer! Not that there's anything wrong with jumping in with both feet!!!Your carboy is going to be busy awhile with that one..........

It is 48 qt Igloo cooler and is about half full with the grains...so i think there will barely be room for the 6 gallons of water if i can add right?

If it's not too late...did you add all the grains into the cooler yet?

If not, you'll instead want to add the water and grains in "layers".

3 inches of water...some grain...3 inches of water...some grains and so on.

It'll make stirring up the mash a lot easier.

Am I the only one who did a simple pale ale for their first AG?
Props to the OP for the brass cajones.
