Brewed my first partial mash with this recipe and it is chugging through the blow off tube! Mashed at 149, but after 45 minutes it had dropped about 4-5 degrees. Batched sparged with 184 twice. I used a 3 gallon gatorade cooler with a paint strainer bag.
1.25 Thomas Fawcett Amber Malt
8lbs Briess Pilsen DME
Mixed the appropriate hops and dropped in a handfull every 5 minutes for the 90 minute boil.
Pitched with a 1L starter of Ringwood yeast.
OG came out to 1.090 and hopville estimated 1.086.
