Default Mashing R Us

Why did I need to go AG? Missed my strike temp (4 degrees to low), and had to let it sit 30 minutes while I warmed more water, then overshot by 4 degrees. Screw it...it's gonna have to do. No doubt in my mind I've ruined this batch...I should just dump it right now.

Stay tuned for more breaking news on this developing cluster f*&k.

I am at work. The only question is which client I'm gonna try to bill for the time spent mashing.

Welcome to the dark side El P.

Yeah, AG is a tough bee-atch. I screwed up on water quantities and sparged too fast, but hey...you live and learn. Just hold onto the thought that AG opens up an even larger playing field in terms of beer styles. It also adds another realm of dimensions to the hobby (water treatment, mashing chemistry, sparging physics)....I'm scaring myself!

I'm definitely not giving up on brewing extracts or kits though.

So, what equipment have you put together for your first AG??

Many German step mashes use 2 saccrification rests. One for the Maltose at ~63C...66C (145F..151F) and one for dextrines at 71C (160F). The body of the beer will be determined mostly by the length of the Maltose rest.

You may have done just that. Just wait for conversion and you should get a higher bodied beer. If you want to have a lighter body, just cool it down a bit and wait 20 - 30min after conversion.

You're an extract brewer? I thought you did (half-assed) partial masses

Sometimes I do half-ass mini-mashes, but only if I throw in 2-row. If that's not in there, I'm just doing anal-retentive steeping.
