Default northern brewer all grain kit - patersbier

One of my friends bought me this kit for my birthday. I was planning on doing an oatmeal stout for my first all grain batch, but given that this will have milled grains, ill probably do this one first. Here are the instructions:

http://www.northernbrewer.com/docume...Patersbier.pdf

This uses terms im not familiar with such as protein rest, beta sacch rest, alpha sacch rest, etc.

Putting those terms aside, i believe i should be doing mash schedule B with my equipment (10 gallon MLT, 10 gallon brew pot) as i will be doing batch sparging. Im guessing their instructions translates to mash at 147 for 60 minutes, then sparge at 170 for 10 minutes? just want to make sure the saach rest isnt something completely different.


Also has anyone made this beer? This page says its ready in 6 weeks, but the pdf says 6 months. im assuming this is a typo.

Looks like a nice recipe.

Schedule B is a straight-forward single-infusion mash, and that's what I'd do if I made this beer. As you say, aim for a rest temp of 147.

"'Sacch Rest" means saccharification rest, which is a mash stage that converts starch to sugar.

Schedule A shows two different Sacch rests, which each aim to promote the two main types of enzymes that do the conversion of starch to sugar, alpha- and beta-amylase.

More info here, for starters:

Again, the main point is that you're right, and a single infusion at 147 should do a great job.
