For the extract recipe, if I want to do a 5-gal batch, is it as simple as dividing all the amounts by 11.5/5 = 2.3, or is it more complicated than that?

For example, use 5 lb light DME, 1 lb amber, etc. etc.

Thanks!

I'm going to brew the 5-gal partial mash recipe on Monday. I just plugged the numbers into beer alchemy and the OG is 1.058, as opposed to the AG OG of 1.054...

Just wondering if anyone here as done the PM recipe and adjusted the amount of DME to be a little lighter, or if the 1.058 came out just fine.

Since this is my first PM, maybe my efficiency will be off anyway, and so I might not hit 1.058 regardless..

Please post your results. I'm a big fan of this beer and as soon as I get back to the States, this is probably the first AG recipe I'll be trying to make.

Just finished brewing this, the partial mash version, my first partial mash. ended up at 1.054 @ 73 degrees. I'd say it tasted good but I really don't think I have the experience to judge the taste of unfermented beer.

Probably primary for 2-3 weeks, then 1 week in secondary with dry hopping, then bottle.

Just tasted my partial mash version for the first time when taking a gravity reading. It's in the primary after 16 days. It tastes AWESOME. Going to transfer to secondary and start dry hopping this weekend, and bottle next weekend.

Thanks for sharing this recipe. I think I may brew some up this weekend.

We were at Kona in November, and they had a specialty ginger blond that I'd like to try to brew later this year.

Ok - just cracked mine (partial mash) open after 3 weeks in the bottles. It's pretty good. Unfortunately it's my 2nd beer of the evening and the first one was an IPA, so I don't have a fresh palette, but seems pretty decent to me.

I don't remember what Fire Rock tastes like, so I can't compare. I'll have to track some down.

I'm usually not a pale ale fan, so the fact I like it is a good sign

not sure if anyone has mentioned this but beersmith is estimating an OG of 1.110 and an ABV of over 11.

with a 21.5 lb grain bill, this seems like it could be a big beer, almost a barleywine.

any insight?

Perhaps a closer read of the OP's recipe? It's an 11 gal batch.
