Half Batch Steep Times

Postby pirate357 » Mon Apr 09, 2012 7:03 pm

Hey everyone. I had a question about steeping crystal malt while making a 2.5 gallon batch of beer. How long should I steep the grains? Should I go for 30 minutes like normal? Thanks.

I would. Scaling a recipe only involves adjusting ingredient quantities for the most part. Brewing procedure should be mostly identical, although it will probably take less time to heat and bring to a boil.
