Doug - get a copy of beersmith, load the recipe as written, then "convert" to extract. Its pretty simple to do. Doing this will really help you understand a lot about the process. We just brewed this weekend before last, doing All Grain - hope it turns out as good as we think it will based on the feedback. Good luck and happy brewing

Wow, this looks like a really good beer. I'm going to brew it next week. I'm scaling it up to 11 gallons to try to finish with 10 gallons after dry hopping and equipment losses. I'm going to ferment half of it with WLP001, and the other half with the new WLP090 San Diego Super Yeast.

Thanks for what looks like an awesome recipe.

Sorry for a repeat question, but I don't have access to Beersmith this week as I'm not at home. Can I use LME instead of the 2 Row? If so, I'm off to the home brew store soon...

You didn't take your computer but you have your boil kettle? Nice.

Hi everyone, new to AG, in fact still a virgin. Extract about 9 times, making my MLT and HLT this weekend and looking at my first batch of AG in a week or so.

I am searching recipes and saw this, just wondering why the 90 min boil? Is that normal with AG? hadnt noticed it in other recipes.

Thanks in advance, also I'm a big fan, been reading the forums for over a year learning everything I can about this hobby/obsession!

90 minute boils are fairly common, though it probably depends on the brewer. I do a 90 minute boil any time I use a lot of pilsen malt to drive off SMM/DMS, or when I do a light beer (seems to help round out the flavors.) 90 minute boils can help improve efficiency by starting at a lower pre-boil gravity. My efficiency is best in low OG beers (90-93%). I'll do a 90 minute boil any time a recipe calls for it, or if I'm targeting a really high OG. YMMV, you could likely get away with a 60 minute boil with this recipe.
