Looks pretty good to me. Is this your first decoction?

This has been fun so far.

I bought a braid, got home, chopped it and realized it was plastic, not SS.
Tried to mill my grain, but the wheat is too tough. My cordless drill couldn't crack one grain. Soo...

Bought a new drill!! Got a 6.5 amp Rigid corded drill. It pwned that grist.

Now I'm waiting for my mash water to cool. I way overheated it. It's at about 190 now...I figure 160ish should be good on a day like today.

That's what a decoction can do for efficiency (leaving aside the argument of whether or not it's worth the time to get the efficiency). I'm curious to hear how it turns out since biscuit and aromatic are more commonly seen in Belgian beers but should be an interesting addition if you're really going for the maltiness.

With the belgian wheat, I thought that it'd be a good addition (biscuit and aromatic) for a super malty flavor. It's a pretty big beer.

Bubbing like a mo'fo right now. I pitched a mason jar of slurry into the bucket while I was racking from my CFC.

Actually, I just noticed that it's been 14 hours. I'm thinking about re-aerating.

No need to aerate. I'm about to have a gusher. Already got krausen in the airlock.
