Hey Krenshaw, Congrats on the 1st all grain batch! You'll have to let us know how it turns out!

thanks.. it's bubbling like crazy in my basement as we speak.. i didn't get the full 6 gallons that was in the recipe.. probably a little over 5.. will that make it stronger/hazier or something like that? as it being my first all grain i'll just be happy if it tastes like beer :-)

i've always done a secondary with my previous brews, at first for clarity, then i guess just out of habit.. with wheat beers it seems the majority say to just rack directly from the primary into keg/bottles.. i plan on doing both, if i prime the half in the bottles, and force carb in the keg for the other half, any suggestions for doing anything differently that i may have done in the past as this is the first wheat and all grain i've ever brewed??

I am about a week removed from brewing this recipe. I'm very anxious to see how it will taste. It already smells awesome, and my pre-fermentation sample gave me a very positive outlook. Thanks for the recipe.
