    Hi im about to try this tomorrow.
    any feedback on this recipe please?
    and my challenge i face:
    im going to split the boil in two identical brewpots,but the mash will be done at once in a container large enough.
    i will split the hops equally for the boils.
    once complete with boil,both will be siphoned into one fermenter.

    i know,get a bigger brewpot ,but budgetary constraints,so i managed to borrow another pot!

    Am i l pushing it or is this possible.

    As always,thamks

    Sorry, not a blonde ale kind of guy, others will no doubt have some comments for you. I don't see any issue with two separate boils, other than the obvious headache of managing two hot breaks and watching out for two boil overs. And then chilling two separate pots as well.

    If you're going for a blonde ale, I think you're a bit high on the IBU. You may want to consider something in the 20-25 range. You might also want to consider moving some of your hops to be added between 5-10 minutes before flameout. This will give you a bit of hop flavor and aroma. Again, this depends on what style you're trying to achieve.

    You've probably already thought of this, but I'd run the boils 15-30 minutes apart, just to give you some space to do the things at the end of the boil you need to do.

    I think you'll need to write out carefully what to do for what pot (hop additions) and get different timers running (1 for each pot)
    Mark's idea of not starting them at the same time is a very good one!

    Can I make a suggestion? Not about brewing, but about adopting a name. You're part of the community now, and a welcome one at that, and it's awkward to think of you as @brewer#329768 . I think of the gang here by their handles, and that makes you more "real" in an imaginary friends kind of way.

    Or if you really want a traditional hockey nickname you can be boring and just add a "sy" or "er(rr)" to the end of your name:p:p

    AWESOME!
    Because @Yooper is right - you are certainly part of the crew here so - A name is in order! I believe you had said in your first post that your name was Rudi so that is how my brain has taken to thinking of you... Which is certainly easier than the number tag you have! :)

    How did the two pot brew session pan out? Your recipe was set for 15L in the fermenter - did you do that or a 20L total?

    Name suggestion:
    BRudi?
    Pronunciation Brew Dee
    As others have mentioned we would like to better identify with you. There are a number of Brewer######'s here, it is difficult to differentiate between all of you numbered guys:D

    Alcohol banSA is about to be lifted (again), so how about "TheBanThatMadeMeStart?
    Or just "Rudi Likes Alcohol" :)
