Im going to do my first PM tomorrow and have a few questions. First off I will be mashing 2 lbs of American 2 row, 2lbs of Flaked oats, and .5lbs of crystal 60L. Basicly I just need to be sure I can just add the flaked oats to the mash without dong anything to them.
Also I am planning on doing this with a dutch oven and using the oven. I will let the oven get to 170 (lowest setting, and then click it off when I put the pot in it. I will get the water to 170 before adding grains. I will use 6.75 qts of water. I will sparge with 170* water.
When I sparge with the water do I collect the first amount of water and run it back through the grains? Also how much water shoould I use to sparge? Thats about it.
Does everything seem right? I dont want to screw this up. Thanks.
