Do you consider Munich and Melanoiden specialty grains? No one said that steeping will make more sugar just that controlling temp can act as a mini mash when steeping.

Grrr brewed this today on my new set up and missed mash temps and was short on og by ten points. Guess I will have to get more practice in on my new rig. Hope it is at least decent despite my **** ups.

So are we thinking;
Brew
About 10 days later dry hop
About 10 days later bottle?
I know it depends on the numbers (steady gravity reading).
Also, can I get away with not using a secondary and just putting the dryhops in the primary?
And.. do you think it would benefit to split the dry hops into a few different grain bags?
do I need to weigh the bags down?
Thanks

And.. do you think it would benefit to split the dry hops into a few different grain bags? You can, it makes them easier to remove
do I need to weigh the bags down? I usually do
Thanks
See above in bold

Just wanted to say I've tested my first bottle of this and WOW it's awesome, best brew I've made so far - tastes very close to the real thing.

If I dont first wort hop, can I do a 60 minute boil of 1 oz of Citra?? Or maybe .5 oz Warrior?? I use the BIAB method, and in BeerSmith, if I use .5 oz of Warrior at 60 minutes, it gives me about 65 IBU using everything else the same in the hop schedule. Sound alright???
