I might just have to go with single infusion due to lack of equipment and funds. The Steam infusion system would be the cheapest way around it. I will think on it, Thanks for all of your inputs.

No problem about the input, that is what we are here for.

However, if you are really wanting to do multiple rests, it couldnt hurt to read up on decoction. I have done a few and really like it...I typically get really good efficiency too. Anyway, if you go with a single infusion you will be fine too.

I just brewed a similar beer doing a rest at 122, saccrification at 152, and mash out at 168. Using a 10 gallon cooler and starting at .9qt/gal, it worked just fine.

Like Llarian said start with a lower grain to water ratio and it work fine. I have done several step mashes in a 12.5 gallon Igloo with no problems at all.

I do singles, except for wheat (which I never brew). If I am getting fancy I will do a decoction, but there again, I don't get fancy very often. I used to do steps when making lager, but the under modified grains are no longer available so forget that.

That sounds like a good option for me at this time. Thanks.
