Im planning to try an experimental imperial stout. Its going to be really small (1.5 gal) but Im shooting for 1.100 OG. I have a plan, but Im wondering if I have the details straight in my head.
If I rock a really thin mash----> decoc (gallon or so) to bring mash temp to 168 (and reach my preboil volume minus grain absorb. loss), effectively combining mash and a mini batch sparge... what changes do I need to make to the recipe?
can I just drop my eff. a little, maybe to 55/60%?
