This recipe is pretty basic, so nothing special in regards to making it all grain. Have you already purchased the equipment you'll be using? I'd suggest checking out a general all grain tutorial - there's tons of them here, as well as online in general.

Brewed this again last Fri. I love the fact that I can brew 24 gal and only need 31 lbs of grain. It is a very easy beer to make and a lot of people enjoy drinking it this time of year. I also like that this can be a ten day beer from making to drinking

About to do fourth batch and I have 1 question. Has anyone else noticed when you get to the last gallon or so in the keg the beer is almost clear with no haze and tastes very different? Do you know what would cause this?

The cold conditioning settles out the yeast towards the end of the keg. Shake the keg around to suspend the yeast again. Same thing can happen with a Hefeweizen.

Forgot how active a fermenter this yeast strain is. Cleaned up the carboys and airlocks that the yeast came through. Next time I'll use 6 instead of 5 carboys for 24 gal.

Is a wheat so you kind of want it cloudy. I wouldn't.

I racked to secondary on 6-23,,,took out of fermenter chamber and put in swamp cooler for 6 days...water temp was in the mid 70's.......it was frickin hot out all week. put back in fermenter chamber for 7 days.....
My 2 cents: pitch some fresh yeast in krausen, let it work and take some readings.

Good luck from Italy!

Ok two questions,

1. What is the purpose of rice hulls?
2. Should I remove all orange and coriander from wort before primary, or transfer them into primary?

Thanks!

To let the wort drain more easily when you are filtering. If you are confident in your filtering method, they are not strictly necessary (I made the recipe without them and had no problem).

Remove them. They are used just like hops.

Cheers from Italy!
