Thanks busy with the calculator and converting everything to metrics. Might be harder than i thought to brew.

Thanks for the info will check with my friend on the correct procedure. I hope he will be fine, he only does irish beers.

No it is not a typo. As I said it is not my recipe but it works fine as is.
Good luck for your first brew.

My friends says that most of his beer ferment in 2 to 3 weeks. Why is this one staying in the fermenter 30 days? Should I move it to another bucket after a while?

You can probably bottle it sooner but you get a better result if you wait longer in the fermenter. Personaly I never put a beer in a secondary unless I intent to age it more than 2 months. The beer will be fine if you don't move it to a secondary and it will clear by itself if you wait long enough. You can test eventually for the gravity. When it stop dropping you can bottle but I maintain that longer in the fermenter will provide a better beer. I waited 5 weeks before bottling this one.

After that, wait at least 3 weeks in the bottle before drinking it, longer if possible. I drunk my first one after 7 weeks and recently I opened one that was about 4 to 5 months in the bottle and it was even better than at 7 weeks.

I hope you are a patient man because you will need it as a brewer.

Patience is not one of my virtue. I guess this will put it to the test.

Mine is not my greatest strength either. That is why I brew so many beer so that now I always have something ready to drink while the other mature in the back ground.

I don't know if it is a sunny in Dublin than in cork but it will make for a great brew day if it is.

Brew is in the fermenter. It was easier than I thought it might be. It just take time. it took 6 hours from start to finish. I really like the taste of it once it was cooled down. But it is hard to get an idea of what it will taste when done.

Original gravity was 1076, a little lower than you specify but I won't complain. Can't wait to bottle it.

I might just have got the bug for it. I'm mightly tempted by the westvleteren recipes on this forum.

Congrat on your first brew. Don't worry about the lost 2 point of gravity. Your may finish 2 pt lower too.
Just be patient and let it rest for 4 weeks.
