Is the 145F 60 min. correct? seems awfully long at that temp. or I can wait till 3/2/09 :D great show

BTW, previous posts about ferment temp are incorrect. Start at 66F and ramp to 70 is what Jamil said.

The Can You Brew It recipes follow the same rules as the Previous Jamil Show recipes and the recipes in Brewing Classic Styles. 70% efficiency, 6 gallons at the end of boil, rager for hops, hop pellets, etc. All in the book around page 41.
I hope my post helped in some way. If not, please feel free to contact me.

I'm brewing this one today and my buddy is brewing it tomorrow. I'm skipping the starter since I woke up late ;-) My buddy is doing a starter so we'll see how they compare head to head. Jamil's recipe comes out perfect in promash. We left out the black patent malt since LA B3 was out, also didn't have crystal 75 so we went with 60 and a touch of 120 for fun. Mashing at 155F right now, missed by one degree and couldn't be bothered to add some more water. Smells awesome.

The best part of this brew session is I've piped over filtered water to the brewery side of the garage this morning, just open the tap and fill the HLT, no more lugging 5g of water from the sink a bunch of times. Nice.
