Here are the tips I'll give you for your first biab. Have some iodine on hand to check that you've converted the starches. Have some dme in case you miss your OG.
My pot in 10 gal. I was planing on scaling it back by about 20%.

As long as you can life the whole wet grain bill you should be fine for volume. BeerSmith will give you good volumes based on your biab setup.

Brewed this up yesterday. I made a 1.5L starter with the yeast but I only made it about 24 hours before pitching. The yeast was definitely working on the starter, releasing lots of CO2 whenever I swirled it, but no signs of activity from the blowoff hose on my bucket yet. I was hoping for a fast takeoff, now I'm a bit worried. RDWHAHB I guess.

Cracked the lid this morning and confirmed that it is off and running with a thick healthy looking krausen. My bucket lid just leaks really badly. I really can't wait to taste this beer!

Should this beer have a slight bitterness on the backend ?

Brewed and kegged. OG and FG were pretty much spot on. Used Wyeast 1007 German Ale. Definitely has a citrusy flavor to it, a little bitter. More 'yeasty' than the Kolsch yeast probably would have been. Someone mentioned similarities to sumpin sumpin early on in this thread, hopefully I can find some out here in TX for a side by side. Any other beers folks who have brewed this think it is similar to??

I brewed this up 2 weeks ago. Just checked the FG (1.010) and tasted the hydrometer sample. WOW, really tasty. I used very slightly more hops than the recipe called for (converted grams to ounces and rounded up). I am going to go ahead and bottle this batch now, I don't see any reason to let it sit in primary any longer!

Racked this onto 60 oz of frozen raspberries, after 3 weeks of conditioning in a keg - WOW!
very very good - thanks for a great recipe.

Another followup. This beer has been in bottles for only 5 days. I couldn't resist sacrificing one so I put it in the fridge for about two hours to chill then cracked it open. Nice carbonation already (used 4oz. priming sugar for about 5.5 gal) and it really tastes great. This is exactly what I was looking for - a clean, crisp, slightly fruity beer that is going to be amazing on a hot day. Best part, I poured the yeast and it only adds character to the beer which means my friends can enjoy it from the bottle. It's going to be very hot here very soon and this is going to be very popular at the beach.

Salud!

Just ordered the NB Raspberry Wheat AG Kit. Gonna brew that up next weekend but use real raspberries instead of the extract. Should be tasty... Anyone else used this kit?
