Description
After years of trying I finally made a beer I think worthy of posting on a recipe board. This is a partial mash recipe, but I think I'm going to convert it to extract w/steeped grains next year since the wife ripped me a new one over all the mashing mess! Any help on how to convert would be appreciated.
