I am now drinking my third batch (10 gallon batches!) of this recipe. I have used flaked and torrified wheat, both with great success. I fly sparge VERY slowly at 190*. This keeps the temp in the mash tun at ~170*. OG 1.072 FG 1.010. Besides the one time that I used flaked wheat, I follow the recipe as per protocol. Kudos to the OP for posting this great recipe.

Brewed this per the recipe on Sunday. First ever all grain brew. Had to top it off a bit after that 90 min boil to get it back close to 5 gallons. Still hit an OG of 1.072. Can't wait till its ready to drink! Thanks OP!

Couldn't wait so cleared the bottom of the keg and had a taste (or two)....really, really good! AND in spite of me flubbing up the yeast addition. I cracked the White Labs vials and hadn't sanitized. Yeast bubbled out, ran down my hand, over the vials and into the beer!! The indicator that I 'consumed' too much while brewing was that I DID THE SAME DAMN THING WITH THE SECOND VIAL OF YEAST!

In the end, no infections. Beer is great now and will get better if it lasts a couple weeks!

Thank you, thank you for the recipe!!

Just brewed this last week for a buddy of mine visiting from Cali I'm leaving for 10 days on Monday and when I get back I plan to dry hop it for another week then bottle it, so hopefully it's carbonated by week 3 in bottles. Can't wait!!

what would be the boil volume if we boil for 90min, with a final volume of 5 gallon?

Everybody's boil off rate is different. The average is about 1/gal per hour, so at that you would need 6.5 gallons.

You can guess closer by boiling some water for 15 minutes and extrapolating from there. You just need some way to measure your before and after volumes fairly accurately as any error is multiplied by 6.

Did anyone dry hop with less? ? When I took the og I tasted it and it seemed really hoppy already
I know this will fade a bit in fermentation but 2oz to dry hop seems like a lil much. And I'm a huge hop head
