I have the day off work tomorrow and have every hour dedicated to my first all grain brew.
My first brew is to be Orfy's Hobgoblin. I'm gonna jot down a brew schedule tonight and get everything straight in my head, so it all goes as smoothly as possible.
I intend to complete the recipe exactly as per the instructions posted with the recipe in terms of the mash temp, double sparge etc. I have read Bobby M's AG primer and see the double batch sparge technique as the one I will be using most often anyway.
Any tips from anybody who has tried this recipe?
Also, I'm prepared for the possibility of my efficiency not being great, although it could be (I read the efficiency stickies too), but I was considering adding 1lb of grain extra on top of the recipe suggested amount to offset this? I guess I should complete the recipe as suggested, check my efficiency then make any adjustments in my next brew. Don't wanna create problems before there are any, but just trying to anticipate any issues as I want the brew to go well.
Bottom line, tomorrow I break my all-grain cherry and I'm excited
