Not to seem like too much of a neophyte here, but was your boil 90 min., Ed?

Hammy, I assume that is your method. Fermentation time and temp is different for EdWort as well.

For Nephilim, yes, EdWort's boil time on his original recipe was 90 minutes. That is what I used as well.

Actually, his boil was 70m and his mash was 90m @ 154.

I sheepishly stand corrected. After posting, I looked back in my notes and found that the boil was supposed to be 70. Turns out, I did 90 minutes for mash and boil. The good news is I had my first one last weekend and it is fantastic, so my mistakes didn't create a poor result.

Great Recipe EdWort!!!

I have until Halloween to make this for a work party... Would 6 weeks be enough to make this, carb this, and have it drinkable?

Cheers
