Default Think this will work??

Hi all! Is it possible to get a decent efficiency with the following recipe? I ask because there is only 2 lbs of 2-row and almost 6 lbs of other grain. Is that enough to convert the starches. I have some PH 5.2 to use and I mash in a 5 gal round cooler w/ SS braid for lautering and then batch sparge. I usually go pound for pound but only have the 2 lbs of 2-row right now and will soon be leaving for a month so need to use the stuff soon! Everything is mixed in a single bag except 3 lbs of munich (will it last a month??) . Please comment on the recipe as well. It is the fire-in-hole from B3 but I didn't like their hop schedule so I'm gonna change it. If you guys think it will work then this will be one helluva strong beer! That's ok because it can age in the secondary while I'm away.

You should be OK. IIRC that Munich Malt should help your mash a bit as well, not as well as the 2 row but it has some enzymes in it.

Now if I could only fidn the lnk to the chart I read yesterday to confirm it . . . I know it's on this site somewhere

You will probably be OK but I would either add another lb of pale malt or do a fairly long mash, say at least 75 minutes. It's the pound of flaked wheat that needs to be converted with excess enzymes from the base malts. Munich malt has enough enzymes to take care of itself, crystal malt doesn't need conversion, rye malt has enzymes and British pale will safely convert 15% of its' weight in starchy adjuncts.

Thanks guys! I didn't know Munich would convert itself so I'll just save that for the next brew and mash it solo.

Please share if you happen to find the chart.

If your worried about it why not try something out of the single infusion. The last one I did was a decoction and I have to say that outside of an opinon that they are hard, it did not seem all that hard to me. Do a thick rest, single infusion to get you in the 150s and a single decoction to get you at mash out. This realy was not hard... you can't leave the decoction alone, but it was not hard at all.

That's a good suggestion as well. I was thinking of a decoction in the future.

Munich can convert itself (but not other grains), so you only need enough 2-row for the wheat & caramel.
