Thanks for sharing this recipe--definitely going to give it a shot.
For those of us without the ability to increase mash temp easily, would a 148 reg mash suffice vs. 145x 60, 155x10?

Cheers!

I mash in a cooler, just planned to run off some wort, bring it to a boil then put back in to raise the temp.

I just dump my entire mash out of my cooler and into my kettle. Bring it up to your desired temp and dump it back into your mash tun and seal it up...easy peasy!

Also, Beersmith can calculate it for you. In a 5.5 gallon batch (of Union Jack) it just has me add 4 quarts of 207.8 degree water to my 10 gallon cooler to bring the mash up to 155.

Good intel! To be honest, I did not know Beersmith would give me that. Where do you find it on Beersmith?

In your mash profile, add a step and enter the target temp. I also entered the amount of water to add, and it calculated the infusion temp based upon my equipment profile.

I haven't tried it yet, but Beer Smith ALWAYS nails my mash temps dead on, so I trust it in this case too.

I just discovered Wookie Jack a month or so ago and as someone else mentioned, it was love at first smell (then taste). FW is a great brewery and I had the pleasure of stopping there last summer on our vacation ( a wine country/brewery tour up the southern CA coast).

After finding so much to like about FW beers, I found that the little bottle shop up the hill from me was selling FW sixers for 6.99 - all the time (except Union Jack). So now I get my Pale 31 on a regular basis, throw in a little Velvet Merkin and now that summers here, some Solstice. As they say, it's all good (especially at 6.99)!

Oh, and Wookie Jack will definitely be my next brew. Thanks for posting the recipe (and the update)!
