Beerkrafter's Hell Raising Helles

This recipe was originally designed as a 10 gallon batch, but our extract rate was greater than we thought we would get, so we decided to go with a larger batch after running it up on our brewing computer. The mash tun ended being quite efficent, with an extract ratio of about 74%. We did this brew as an all grain brewing demo for our club, The Puget Sound Beerkrafters of Tacoma, Washington. We had a brewing time of just under 6.5 hours including clean up. If you enjoy this recipe please let us know at
