I intend to use this recipe for my first time doing an all-grain brew, but I have a noob question first!
How much water should I mash in? All 11.5 gal? I've read in a few places it's a rule of thumb that you should use 1qt water for every 1lb grain, which would only be 6.5gal. Assuming I have a big enough kettle, would it be advisable to mash in the full boil volume?
Thanks! I'm looking forward to this
Ninja edit: I realized I probably need to save some room for the sparge water.. so probably not the full 11.5gal - still would appreciate advice on mash/sparge volume!
