I was hoping to try out some of the recipes from the gold medal winners from the recent Zymurgy Sept/Oct 2016 issue. When it says "for 5.625 U.S. gallons" for example, is that the amount at the end of the boil? Or is it the amount that should end up in the fermenter? Or some other stage perhaps? Thanks for any insight!

Excited to try out Tom Thorpe's English Pale Ale!

My assumption, too.

Yep, unless stated otherwise, it's safe to assume end of boil. Let us know how it turns out for you. I've had my eyes on that one. The Mosaic and Wyeast 1469 sound like a fun combo!

Nice, I'll go for end of boil then. Thanks for the replies!

Dave, not that I'm at the level to be tweaking others' recipes but I was going to switch out the Mosaic for all Nelson (if I can get it). I love Mosaic too but I've been wanting to brew an all-Nelson batch for a while now.
Sorry it won't be Mosaic-related but I'll still post my results! Who knows, my LHBS might not have Nelson and I'll have to use Mosaic. Either way, I'll let you guys know. Thanks again!
