So Im prepping to set up my an AG rig of my own and jumping into the deep end.
I would like to try and build as much of my rig as possible(on the cheap). I am sure there has been post about this in the past but when I search I only get small bits and peices. I already have this list of equiptment.
20 qt stock pot
34 qt stock pot
25' copper wort chiller
10 Gal. laurter tun w/ false bottom
plus essintial cleaners and mesuring devices from partial brewing
Will i require any more equptment than what I have? Also i would like some feedback on my recipe and steps as i have figured I will do on brew day.
5 gallon batch Bavarian Hefewiessen
4 lbs. 2 row Pilsner
8 lbs. red wheat
2 lbs. Munich
14 lbs. total grain bill
3.5 Gal. of mash water
plan on a 155 F mash for 1 hour
3.5 Gal. of sparge water @ 170 (will pre heat my strike water to 175 and pre heat my tun)
7 gal of total water
1.4 gal of absorption
6.6 gal total in boil
1 hour 36 min boil for 5 gal batch
Bitter hop 60 min left 1 oz. Hallertau

Send through chiller to fermentation bucket pitch yeast at approx. 73 F. use liquid Wyeast 3333 German wheat yeast from LHBS.
