Directions

protein

125.0 F

infusion

30

Mash in with 3.2 gallons US of water at 137.0 F



Notes:


Distilled water / 1 gallon regular water blend.

Double decoction process used: 125 @ 15min, 40% grain rested at 150F for 15 min before boiled for 30 min. Rest for 30 minutes. Returned to mash (approx 154F), remove 40% grain and boil for 20 minutes for mash-out @ 170F, normal sparge.

The mash manager schedule is strike and sparge only.

Water choice: Deer Park

Yeast should be White Labs: Czec Budejovice (WLP802) when available

NOTE: Fornicator mash schedule has correct one :) 3.4 gallons initial mash, 3.1 gallon sparge, 135 strike

New mini-decoction method:
Infuse grain @ 140F, rest 20 minutes
Take out 40% of the grain (thick mash), bring grain to a boil
Boil the grain no longer than 30 minutes, or as long as it takes before the grain gets sticky / potentially scorchable.
Return grain to tun -- should be 156-158F. Rest another 20-30 minutes
Draw out about 1 gallon of wort -- bring to boil
Add back to tun -- should bring mash temperature to 170F. Recirculate, then sparge.
