I’m doing my first all-grain brew, Peace Coffee 2d Crack Stout. My mash tun is only 5 gallons (which is fine for the partial mash brews I’ve been doing). HLT is 10 gallons. Obviously, space is limited. The grain bill calls for 12.25 pounds of grains for 5 gallons. Based on what I have learned on this site, I will need 12.25 * 1.25 = 15.3 gallons of water total (which seems like a lot for 5 gallons of beer).
My question is:
Will I have enough room for the 150 mash in? How much water would I want/need? Is it time to just buy the 10 gallon setup?
Thanks for your tips!
