Hey joeyrod, I'd like to help you out but I don't have much experience converting an AG recipe with this many components to extract...I'd just be guessing. For partial-mash, you could convert the 16 lbs of combined Maris Otter & 2-row to extract fairly easily and steep the remaining specialty grains and adjuncts. I'm not sure if this is much help though, anybody else wanna take a stab at it?

Also, a lot of folks here have referenced the attached whitepaper as a good resource for converting recipes:

Hope it helps, cheers!

Sorry to be a n00b, but plugging this into BrewSmith 2 and trying to sort out the mash out, etc. Can you give more detail on your mash process? BS 2 yields negative sparge volumes...

Sure, no worries. I used a standard single infusion mash at 1.25 qts water / per LB grain. I believe it was right around 7 gallons of strike water and I mashed at 149 F. I double batch sparged and used some of the last runnings for a separate, small hoppy brown beer.

Really glad I found this thread! Just increases my hopes that the RIS I am going to brew next weekend will turn out well. Also going to use Pacman yeast, and using 2 oz. Columbus, 1.5 oz. Amarillo, and 1 oz Simcoe. Will post the recipe here in a few when the crib midget finishes up her Baby Einstein video on the computer... Hoping I can get some feedback from you guys.

Also, why the longer boil and why the low mash temp? I am just curious... Trying to get different ideas/opinions to hone my recipe for next weekend.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Ryan M.

2 oz. Columbus (13.9%) for 60 minutes

Strike with 6.2 gallons RO water (treated with 1 tsp calcium chloride per 5 gallons) at 166 degrees (152 mash temperature). Mash for 90 minutes.
