Vienna is awesome as a base malt, try it with Styrian Goldings.....a match made in Heaven.

This might seem like a stupid question but how much is 1 Unit of Finning? I don't want to put too much or too little. (Update: read the instructions on the bottle which called for .5 TBS per 5 gal)

Been drinking on this Galaxy/Vienna APA since New Years. I dry hopped it in the keg with another 2 oz (I think?) of Galaxy, and it both smells and tastes fantastic. I'm thinking that I'll have to try this galaxy hops in a few more brews!

Hey guys,

Gonna give this one a go soon as my first all grain recipe. Just got a question about ingredients before i lock in my purchases. For the hops i have managed to find:

Northern Brewer Pellet Hops 9.0% AA

Will these suffice for the recipe? Im just a little lost as to whether i need 3 different types of northern brewer hops, or if i use the same type of hops, just added 3 seperate times in different amounts? Also thrown off that you say 8.80 and these are listed as 9.

Any help from anyone?

Thanks so much!

Hi McLovinmylife, welcome to HomeBrewTalk.

In the original recipe, those are all the same variety of hops, which are split up and added at three different times within the boil.

Hop Alpha Acid percentages change from year to year and from grower to grower, based on the soil, rainfall, heat/cold, etc. - His were 8.8% and yours are 9% - I don't think most people would re-calculate a recipe over 0.2% difference.
However just be advised that your IBU, especially for your bittering addition, will be slightly - very, very slightly - higher.

If it were a big difference (say, 4.5% Cascades versus 8.5% Cascades) then you would want to re-calculate each hop addition amount so that the total IBU of each hop addition stays the same as the original recipe. (this is less important on the late-hop addition, though - primarily on anything boiled long enough to contribute bitterness!)

DeathBrewer- I plan on brewing this recipe this weekend as my first AG brew and I had a few questions. I planned on using 12.5 quarts (1.25 quarts per lb) for the mash, but how much water should I sparge with?

Also, I plan on using wlp007 which should ferment out pretty dry. Should I mash a little high to add a little sweetness? I plan on following your Easy Stovetop All Grain instructions. Thanks!
