Default First All Grain

Started my first all grain brew Saturday with the help of a buddy who has a couple years experience. All in all, the process went pretty smoothly.

9lb Belgian Pils
1/2lb each of Belgian Caramunich and carapil
1/4lb each of Belgian Aromatic and flaked wheat
Tossed in some of my friends rice hulls, about 1/8lb.

1lb belgian candi
1oz bitter orange
1oz coriander

Trappist wyeast
1oz each of tettnang and czech saaz at 60min

1.063OG

It's currently fermenting in a fridge at 70. Thoughts on how long to ferment? Any other thoughts or suggestions?

No suggestions, but it looks like it'll be tasty. Let us know how it is!

Since you have a fridge for fermentation, maybe kick the fridge temp down 2-3 degrees, but probably not needed. At 70, your fermenter's probably gonna be about 75, which will pull out esters that will work with the style. Lowering it a couple degrees will knock those down a tad.

Ferment for 2-4 weeks then bottle or keg it and all will be good. Double check the SG prior to bottling just in case fermentation stuck, but it's unlikely to happen.

The temp bounces around between 68-70.5.
