How much grain do I need for beer?

Typically you want around 8-15 lbs (4-7 Kg) base malt per 5 gallons (18.9 L) (21 L), depending on the type of beer you're brewing. 2-row British pale malt is great to start off with. Add 1-2 lbs (0.5-1 Kg) of specialty grains (crystal, caramel, etc.) to get some good flavor.
