Mashing grains right now. Beersmith told me to stoke with 166 degree water to hit a 152, which was right on. It's telling me to sparge with 186 degrees, which seems a bit high to me. Any input?
not enough info. What is your strike and sparge volume and what is your grain bill?
13 pounds of grain, striked with 4 gallons. Want to batch sparge twice with 2.25 gallons each rinse
both sparge vols @ 186?
Yes, sounds ok? Or too high?
That first sparge is going to take it up to about ~162 and the second sparge to ~172. Sounds about right to me. Maybe a little high.
Ok, I'll go with it... Thanks for the input. Collecting first rubbings now. Cheers!!
Runnings... Damn auto correct
