Started with a standard 3-piece airlock, but switch to a blowoff into a jug of Star San (better safe than sticky).

This looks cool.. I'm no math whiz any more..

If I have a 3.3# container of Light LME.. how would each of the ingredients pan out? I think I figured instead of 1 G it would convert to 1.65G.. but, I'm no longer even sure of that..

You might try the calculators over at BrewersFriend.com. It helped me scale everything down to do this batch. Fingers crossed!

Nice color. When did you add your LME? I've made two extract batches (pale ale and IPA) and both have been darker than desired due to adding early in the boil. Well definitely be adding late from now on.

All the LME was added at the beginning, but keep in mind that it was only a twenty-minute boil.

Bottled back on 10/21... Popped the first bottle tonight. Good stuff! Light bodied, not too excessive on the hops, very smooth, carbed perfectly. Day-yam!

Hey sok454, just noticed you're from Chatham... My FIL lives in Springfield and is coming down this week. He's supposed to be picking up some Schlafly's Coffee Stout if he can find it (may not be available yet) or if not, their Oatmeal Stout and/or Porter. Ever see Founder's Breakfast Stout around there? Founder's site says there's a few places there carrying their beers. Just thought I'd ask.
