Shooting for about 6 gallons in boil. I haven't gotten my water mash/boil quantities dialed in...still kind of guessing.

Soak zest of 3 Grapefruits in vodka, in the freezer until secondary (all goes in).

Hibiscus flowers go in 1/2 gallon boiling water and steep 10 to 15 minutes. Strain and chill in sanitized container until ready to use.

Guessing on priming...will check temperature and volume, and adjust when ready. (And go on the low side, as per my usual issue with over-carbing.)

I feel like this beer was a success! I had some positive feedback from some reputable palates. Some advised a little more salt; others thought it was just right. I wouldn't tweak it much. It would make a great hot weather beer, but was nice at the beach for Thanksgiving. Definitely one to repeat!

Doing my first BIAB recipe and wondering what you did with he acidulated malt?
What did you do with it for an additional 45 minutes? Sorry, I was confused by that part.
