Ran my 1st all grain batch last night....
Recipe is a simple Amarillo/Centenial IPA.
9 lbs 2Row
2 lbs Munich
1 lb Crystal 60
60 min Amarillo 1oz
30 min Amarillo 1oz
dry hop with Amarillo 1oz and Centenial 1oz
I requested / got a med-fine crush from AHS.
System setup and on its way to temp.
A few minutes after mash in and the color is starting to come thru pretty well.
Approaching the end of the mash.
I started 6gallon, lost 0.5 or so to the grain, and then rinsed with 1.0 to get my pre-boil to around 6.5.
A few minutes later, full boil....
In the end, with the med-fine crush, 6 gallon mash, 60 minutes @ 155, 10 minutes @ 170, 1 gallon rinse, it appears that I have about 67% efficiency.
Setup was very easy and the PID did a great "set it and forget it" job of getting my water to 155 while I ate supper. Change over to boil, was very good as well. 1 hose clamp and no loss.
Pretty happy with the results. Taste test in 4 weeks.
