First All Grain
« on: November 12, 2014, 06:32:49 PM »
Getting ready to brew my first all grain batch and will be doing a small batch to get my feet wet.  Looking to make a super hoppy IPA. I'm a fan of citra, Simcoe and other floral type hops. I will be using my current 5 gallon brew kettle setup for this adventure. I understand efficiency will be low. Any advice/good recipes?
