    Process:
    - Recommended Mash Temp: 151F
    - Ferment at 66F
    - This recipe is for 5 gallons of wort going into the fermenter. With such a massive hopload, absorption matters, and it affects a lot of things. Read on.
    - This version of the recipe assumes whole leaf hops, with a wort absorption of 8 ounces wort per ounce of hops. YMMV. Adjust as necessary.
    - I used my own boil off rate (in conjunction with hop wort absorption) to determine a starting wort volume, which impacts hop utilization. YMMV. Adjust as necessary. Use your software.
    - Anything you change that relates to absorption will change the total fermentables you need to get out of your mash. So you may need to adjust the grain bill up/down.
    - If your hops have different Alpha Acid percentages, adjust as necessary.
    - This recipe assumes 70% Mash Efficiency, a little higher than BYO recipes (for example) assume, but probably closer to the average efficiency on this forum based on what I've seen over the years. YMMV. Adjust as necessary.

    Other Notes: Extract with Steeped Grains Option
    Steep the Crystal 40 for 30 minutes at 155F. Replace the Two Row Brewer's Malt and the Carapils with 7.2 lbs of Briess Golden Light DME, added at beginning of the boil. (The reason the DME replaces both the Two-Row and the Carapils is that the DME contains Carapils.)
