Default 10 Gallon Recipe - with modifications


I've modified the grain bill to accomodate a 10 gallon batch, and to add some more depth and body to the recipe. In short, I want to accentuate the malt even more. What can I say...I like malt!

1.00 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 4.49 %
1.00 lb White Wheat Malt (2.4 SRM) Grain 4.49 %
0.25 lb Special B Malt (180.0 SRM) Grain 1.12 %

Hops

Mashing schedule:

I just created an account (after over a year of just pursuing and bumming recipes) to tell you I think this looks GREAT, and I will be brewing it tomorrow. I will keep you posted as to how it turns out.
