Hello anyone:)

Started brewing here in Sydney about a year ago and have been using extract and playing with steeping grains.

Just took the initial training wheels off the other week with my first couple of all grain brews. Purchased a Grainfather as looked like an easy entry into all grain brewing and a good price (compared to some of the German beer porn that is out there).

Rookie error on my first batch. Was using a recipe of Epic pale ale, but put the grains into the Grainfather while water was at room temperature, brought up to 72C and THEN set the clock for 60 mins. Not sure what effect this will have. Early tastes seem OK, quite sweet. Is about ready for bottling now (must get onto it this weekend).

Am on this site as apart from loving the whole process of beer making - am wanting to learn from some more experienced brewers.

Cheers All

How long did it take to come up to 72c that time would allow some conversion at the lower temperatures while its heating.

Sorry all - I meant 67C. Sparged at 72C. I used the Grainfather and took about 20 mins to get to 67C.
