Had my first shot at all grain yesterday.
Went well and hit 73% efficiency, OG of 1050 with 18 litres into the fermenter. I seriously need a ball valve in my kettle though, as I ended up pouring most of the trub into the fermenter.. grr..
Used the following recipe, which was originally for an all Citra APA but I decided to split all late hop additions to a Citra/Simcoe blend.
I'd welcome some advice on dry hops (and the recipe in general). At the moment I'm thinking 20gm Citra + 30gm Riwaka for 7days. Would this work? I have Simcoe, Citra, and Riwaka available for dryhopping so am open to alternatives for my dry hopping ratio.
