Partial mash is good, I live in a one bedroom and do 2.5 gallon all-grain BIAB batches but that's about as far as I'll go. Anything 5 gallons is partial mash or extract. 2.5 gallons takes long enough to boil as it is on my apartment stove...

yep. just thought i'd see how far i could push it, now I know Helpful to have a "stop" sign as far as how far to push towards craziness. This locks me in to a nice reasonably-sized, reasonable equipment needs, etc.

Thanks to everyone who's given advice as I've gotten through my first three brews. I feel pretty confident going ahead now, like I've had my trials and tribulations, seen that the beer turns out fine, and so the patience is now there, and i feel like this batch will turn out to be my best, and the next after will be the best, etc and so forth

Come on man... 0.002 off and you're complaining?

Used this as my pale ale base and couldn't be happier. Thanks to the man from just down the road from a fellow Austin brewer! Subbed in Falconer's and Northern Brewer. Almost an IPA, but I'm completely fine with that. New "Haus Pale"

Had to crack one of these open after only a week in the bottle, the suspense was killing me.

This was the first batch I finally had everything dialed in - water chemistry, ingredient supplier, BIAB methodology, fermentation methods, etc.

It has a nice, hoppy, bready aroma. The taste is clean, bready, slightly crisp biscuity saltine-cracker with a hint of honey. The hops are just smooth and clean.

It's just a great recipe. As far as pale ales go, it's what I'd describe as 'tame' - it doesn't get in your face and bludgeon you with a sack of cones, and the malt doesn't make as sweet and thick as some. As such, I'm less inclined to this style than I am to darker, hoppier APAs.

However, it tastes like something I would buy in a store. I wouldn't change anything about the recipe, and it will be fantastic to have around for friends. I can't imagine anyone guessing it's a homebrew recipe unless they were told.

Anyone on the fence: Just brew this. It's great. Thanks EdWort!

Making my second batch tomorrow. First batch was dyhopped with citra.Thsi batch I am Removing the 30 minute and adding .5 oz citra at 10 and 0, Also will dry hop with citra and maybe a little cascade. Guy at a homebrew shop I was talking to did a similiar malt bill and with this hop schedule and said it was great. Worth a try.

Just finished brewing this recipe for my first ever all-grain batch!

The biggest lesson I learned?- start earlier in the day. All grain takes a while longer... but man that mash tun smells awesome!


I'll report back when its time to test the first bottle.
