There should be a warning to all would-be all grain brewers: don't order your first ingredients while drunk!
So I was, a few weeks ago, when I ordered morebeer's Rogue I2PA clone kit.
And here I am, 2 days before my first all-grain brew day, wondering what have I got myself into!
It really wouldn't be a problem except that I only have a 5 gallon cooler for a mash tun. 17 pounds of grain is about 5 pounds more than it can handle. So, maybe I'll improvise and put 10 lbs in the cooler and 7 lbs in my boil kettle (or bottling bucket?). I could just cut back on the grains and make up for the lost gravity with DME.
I'm really not stressing over it...this will be fun and I love learning new stuff.
Any words of wisdom?
