So tomorrow I've planned a brew day with a newbie, but wanted to move on from extract so planned a mini Mash.

Brewing a 10l Black IPA, wish us luck.

Any advice you'd have given yourself before your first brew which requires a boil?

An advise I gave myself was: a boil is a boil. No need for a vigorous boil, with Etna-like effects, just a mild rolling boil with the lid half on will do. And stir once in a while.

Thanks GerritT

Brew afternoon went really well and we are looking forward to the end product. Followed you advise and had it going but not mental, which is what I would have thought it needed to be.
