So I am pretty sure Santa will be bringing me the parts to build a cooler-type mashtun. So my next brew will most likely be an all grain brew.
My question: should I just grab a kit from NB for my first one or would I be better just going with a recipe? I was thinking just a simple APA with 10lbs of 2 row, 0.5lb crystal 40, and 0.5lb of biscuit, mash at 154 for 60 min and a 60/10/0 hop schedule.
I’m curious what to expect from a NB all-grain kit. When buying their specialty grains for extract recipes in the past the crush wasn’t all that great as far as I could tell.
