Hey guys I'm mashing this beer right now. I have little over 16 lbs of grain. I used 6 gal of water for the mash. Any idea how much water I should use for the sparge? I'm shooting for about 6.5 gal for the boil. Thanks!

Ok..... Long night. Just got done brewing. It was worth it. Wort tastes good. Im not adding any extras like coffee chocolate or vanilla. I'll post final gravity and results when I get them. OG: 1.07


Goodnight folks

Looks good!

Not to hijack the thread but I was under the impression that toasted oats needed to be placed in a paper bag and set for a while before adding to a recipe. Heard this at:

Nice job, you'll probably finish high, at maybe 24 points, cause of all the oats and roasted malt. Don't be alarmed. With that OG, your abv will probably hit just below 7 which is perfect. What yeast did you use? Estimated ibu?

I have no idea about the ibu. Not sure how to figure that out, im super amateur. I used neobritanna wyeast 1945. Ita a strain specific to northern brewer. Supposed to be good for stouts.
