Hi all, First of all I would like to thank all the great users of the forum who in the past helped me out with my first attempts to brew. Yesterday I had my first sip to the Abbey Dubbel that I made and it was amazing! I got it 3 weeks in the LBK, then 6 weeks in bottle and then the "famous" three days in the fridge: beautiful. I want now to try a partial mash of a recipe that I found on the internet for a Belgian Dark Strong Ale that I would like to drink next Christmas. It is a recipe for a 5 gal batch but I divided everything by two and this are the new specs: OG: 1.076 0.5 lb Belgian Pils, 0.75 lbs Bohemian Dark, 2 oz C-120, 1 oz Blackprinz. Mash at 152F for 60 minutes Add 3,75 lbs Pilsen LME to boil and increase bittering hops to 0.62 oz. Ferment with Wyeast 3787 Trappist High Gravity I have two questions: 1) The liquid pack yeast that I got has written on it that is designed for 5 GAL, do I have to use half of it? Over pitching could be a big problem for this high gravity recipe? 2) How much water do I need for the mash? How many cups? Thanks for the help!
