Parti time!!!!

Parti-gyle that is.
35 pounds of Cargill Pale Ale Malt
2 pounds of 135l crystal
14 gallons of water to bring mash to 149.
Should yeild 7 gallons of wort for an Old Ale/Barleywine.
Next will add 12 gallons of 155 water to yield a batch of Best Bitter.
Gravities and hop quantities to follow.
Did not work out as planned.
First runnings went big, 8 gallons out, one gallon too many, apperently my grain soaks up less than .2 gallons per pound. The barleywine entering the fementer was 1.120, about 25 points higher than the books said. Not nescessarilly bad. The small beer, due to high winds ended up 12 gallons in the fermenter, 1.5 gallons more than wanted at a gravity of 1.032, a small bitter, but tasted pretty good. This is going to require tweaking.
