Thank you for sharing your brewing process and recipe. You obviously have covered the gamut of traditional and newer techniques. I’m a 5 gallon, traditional 60 minute mash & boil all-grain brewer. So developing a hop schedule and techniques for no boil is my area of concern. I’m moving to small 2-3 gallon batches and a shorter brew day. I started with extract 18 years ago and plan on doing it again. Your comment of how adding 20% grain improved your beer peaked my interest. I of course followed the extract to partial mash to all-grain brewing path. Have never done no boil, no chill but will give it a try.
Very cool! Essentially with the hops you're doing a cooler hopstand while doing the mini mash, so fewer IBUs than the same 20 minutes at like 200 degrees. So you need to hop it more than you would at a higher temp to get the bitterness you're looking for. Good luck!

I just switched back to extract after a long run at all grain. Way too deep in a AG rabbit hole so had to bring it back to basics. Love extract ,PM, and AG but wanted a shorter brew day
