thanks.

Update- well brewed this up yesturday. My sg was 1.085 little under but only my 3rd ag, still learning my setup. Made a mistake, miss read the hop schedule and added the crystal addition in on the full 60min boil. I did everything else right so hopefully doesn't com out bad. It is happy and ferment away at 64.
As long as the sugar gets up to a rolling boil, it doesn't really matter. You just want to be sure it is thoughly dissolved and blended with the remainder of the wort. There is no magic time limit though.

How will adding the crystal hops at the beginning of the boil effect my beer?

I just did the extract version of this last night. I'm very excited. My OG is 1.096. as I think I didn't use enough water in the boil.

Well, doubling this recipe was really pushing what my Brew Magic could handle, but I got through with the primary beer at 14 gal 1.08 SG and produced 6 more gallons of a small beer at 1.048 SG . I have never made a small beer before, I just did a 30 mindays boil on the previously used hops, so it will be a fun experiment.

so, I did not add the corn sugar to this recipe. I completely forgot. How is this going to effect the flavor?

Question for any of you that run this in a SS keg single tier, any challenges with getting a stuck mash with a 10 gallon batch grain bill. I'm thinking that my rig may not be able to handle 36+ lbs of grain. Have any of you used rice hulls or other forms. I'm likely going to be under 36lbs since my target is 7.8% at 70-75 eff.

I use rice hull on all my recipes. Just makes the process smoother and actually helps my efficiency. I don't want to give a stuck sparge second thought...regardless of the recipe.

How much rice hulls did you use for your batch? I'm building my recipe now and look forward to it.

Not so much about weight as volume with rice hulls since the weigh next to nothing. For a normal five gallon batch I'd use may two of these.



For your purpose, I'd recommend maybe four.
