About to brew this using the extract recipe. Everything i have read suggests that one should not steep Munich and Melanoiden - what are other folks doing when brewing this in extract form?

Also the OG comes out very low when steeping these, is a partial mash required? Will these grains even mash without the addition of a base?

Decided to bite the bullet and cut out 1lb of dme, add in 2lbs of 2 row in addition to the other grains and try a mini mash / BIAB with batch sparge. Wish me luck, only second brew ever..... Gulp.... At least the predicted 100 degree heat will help me maintain mash temp outside tomorrow!

That should work, just try to keep the temp 151-156 for 45-60 min. Good luck, i am sure it will come out fine

I brewed it today, my mini-mash missed by a mile so I ended up using more DME than anticipated but I had a good time and I have a bucket full of something that will probably still taste awesome!

Just noticed this on Austin Homebrew Supply (AHS?), how similar are they? AHS is a 3F IPA....

The three floyds extra pale ale? If so, i doubt it is the same. They don't list the hops or grain, but i would bet it doesnt have citra or the grain bill based on their price.

Good night does that S-04 yeast ferment fast. I had a ton of nonstop activity only a few hours after going into the fermenter (and I just dumped the dry yeast on foam in fermenter!). After ~36 hours the activity has slowed to an occasional burp and the krausen has fallen back down. I am going to give it a day or so and take a reading on it.

Ended up mashing really low around 149. og 1.056. After adding two packets of rehydrated s04 and fermentation around 63 degrees for two weeks. I got my fg around 1.006. Tastes amazing and cant wait to dry hop. Thanks for the great recipe!
