I am going to be brewing my first AG batch (finally!) as soon as I pick up my burner and 10 gal pot this weekend. I have brewed 5 extract kits and 6 mostly-mash batches (mash enough to collect 4 gals wort, boil, add small-ish quantities of LME or DME, top off to desired volume with water, etc.). I feel fairly confident with my procedures and the variables in my mash tun (5 gal Rubbermaid w/ false bottom), so I don’t think I’m going to run into anything new.
So, the big question is…what to brew? I’d like to brew a saison based on NB’s Saison kit (but for 5.5 gals instead of 5).
Anybody like to share their first AG brew suggestions? Looking for something fairly easy just to get the hang of the full-boil, no-safety-net brewing.
