Default 10 Gallon Batch Extract/Partial Boil...Just Finished!

This is an update on a previous thread that several people were interested in and I promised I would update when I actually brewed.

Since I do partial boils, around 2 gal, most of the time, why not do 10 gallon batches and just double up on extract. I do late addition DME anyhow and use BeerSmith to calculate my IBU's appropriately for style. Here is how it went, what I learned, and the recipe.

I prepared 3.5 Gallons of water which I raised to 160F for my Crystal 40 to steep. I then added 2 LBS of Light DME and brought to a boil. I then added my bittering hops with and additional 30 min addition. Once I hit the magic 60 minute time, I sunk my chiller in the boil pot to pasteurize. Here is where it gets complicated.

I needed to add the additional 9.5 LBS of DME to pasteurize for 15 minutes. Needless to say, it was thick, but not nearly as bad as I anticipated for. I then chilled to 65F. I prepared (2) 6.5 Gallon bucket fermenters and poured the wort into one. I pitched my 2000ml starter, poured back and forth between the sanitized buckets. I then evened the amounts in each bucket and topped up with tap water to 5.10 Gallons. It is now 5 hours post pitch with a OG of 1.046 in each bucket and it tastes great!

What I learned:
1) I should have added some more DME to the original boil and adjusted my hop additions; it would have made it easier when it came to adding the DME post boil
2) I will take much more time when adding my DME next time post boil to avoid clumping, maybe even look into a sifter for flour?
3) I will add some top up water before aerating to make my wort less syrup-like, then even the batches out for volume.

All in all, it took only one more hour than normal, and I think that was just learning curve. I would not suggest doing this until you have a few batches under your belt and have a good sanitation practice and brew method. Overall, as long as I start to get some good bubbling...RDWHAHB!

I don't think a sifter will help you any. The rising steam will melt the DME right onto the sifter.

I have been trying to think of ways around the "sticky" DME. You are right, it would just stick to it.
