Buy local or brew your own. Anybody can brew beer. Everybody should brew beer. Do it your way.
What is a reasonable amount of water for steeping grains and boiling hops? I'm going to be doing my first non-Mr Beer brew, but still using the 2.14 gallon fermenter. My plan was to use 1 gallon of water to steep some specialty grains and do a 60 minute hop boil. Then at the end of the boil I plan to add 3.3lb of LME.I want to use the gallon so I don't lose a ton of water during the boil.Should I be aware of any grain:water ratios or any other concerns? Bonus question: is it OK to add more water during the boil if you notice you're losing a lot to steam?
