First timer here, hoping to get some feedback before embarking on this first brew. Not sure if any of you would consider it asinine for someone to try an all-grain (BIAB) recipe as a first brew. I'm a biochemist with years of lab experience, so I figure a small BIAB recipe may be Ok to start with. Mostly, I'm trying to skip through the "extract" phase, knowing that I'm almost certain to want to move to all-grain fairly quickly, so I might as well start learning by brewing. Looking at the ingredients that are readily available here in France, I think I might try a malty Belgian style for this first home brew. I've done a lot of reading for weeks to get to this point, and I finally think I have possibly put together a small batch recipe that may turn out reasonably well. Being a noob, though, and not having any direct experience with any of these available malts, I am hoping some of you could weigh in and potentially stave off a potential disaster at the hands of a complete beginner. I'm hoping to do a 10L batch (2.7 gal) with the following: 2 Kg Pilsner Malt (Belgium) [72%] 500g Belgian Munich [18%] 150g Crystal Malt 150 [5.5%] 100g Belgian Wheat [3.6%] Mashing in a bag with 9L of water (either at 149ºF for 60 mins, or in two steps: 120ºF for 20 mins, then 156ºF for 60 mins ) Sparging with 4L of water at 170ºF (Boil size 14L) Boil for 60 mins 4g columbus (french) at 60 5g Hallertau Blanc at 20 5g Saaz at 5 (all are pellet form) Irish Moss for clarifying at 10 Hopefully end up with 10L of wort into the fermentor at 1.064 OG Pitching rehydrated Safebrew Abbaye yeast at Probrew .75 rates ~ 11g Initial fermentation temps at 65ºF and letting it rise by itself to room temp of about 73-75ºF until bubbling stops. I'm hoping to simplify bottling by using carbonation drops at the recommended amount for .75L bottles. According to Brewer's Friend, this should give: Final Gravity: 1.011 ABV (standard): 6.87% IBU (tinseth): 24.75 SRM (morey): 8.42 Any suggestions to avoid a newbie catastrophe, choice of malts, or on single mash temp vs two steps?
