that is exactly what I was talking about. I thought I was doing it right I didn't know the technical term for it. I just read about it and try my best to follow what I read.
My mash ended up being to high of a temperature averaging around 160 but going as high as 170 I hope this does not have detrimental effects on my stout. this is the first stout I have ever made, and I really want it to be tasty.
