I have been full grain brewing for quite some time now and I have always mashed 2-row grains separate from the body grains. For the body grains, I get a 2nd pot with about 1.5 gallons of water. I heat the water just until bubbles start to form on the bottom of the pot, then I turn it off, add the body grains and let it sit for half an hour and then I strain and sparge and then add to the wort.
My question is has anyone mashed their body grains with the 2 row grains? If so did you notice a difference? Is there a difference?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
