I"m brewing the biggest beer I've ever brewed, 12 gallons of Lagunitas Brown Shugga clone at 1.099 OG. It will test the capacity of my mash tun. I've backed my water to grain ratio down to 1 quart/pound. I'm hoping that by leaving more to sparge with, I can keep my efficiency close to 70%. This will also be a big test for WLP002. I wouldn't have considered this yeast if it weren't what they use, apparently. I've made a big starter to hit the yeast count.
Grains are crushed, water is measured and treated. I'm ready to kick the tires and light the fires, Big Daddy.
Any comments would be welcome. Has anyone brewed this recipe from the "Can You Brew It" podcasts? Any advice?
