Great write up. I've been playing around with partial mashing and this was a perfect how-to to more or less let me know that I'm doing it right (I kinda just started doing what I thought was correct and logical). Thanks for taking the time.

most of my partial mash recipes take 3-4 lbs of DME. i believe this one was about 4 lbs, but i don't have my notes with me.

i don't mash more than 6 lbs with this method, so if i want a higher gravity beer, more extract is necessary.

and as for color, this was a nice clear red color. rye and munich gave it the red. a decent conditioning time gave it the clarity. even with the small amount of extract you use partial mashing, you beers will usually be a little darker than all-grain but not a big deal.

First, great write-up; missed it when it first came around.

Second, do you still have the recipe for the rye you brewed in this write-up?

Thanks,

Rick

just a quick question, what's the conventional/easiest method for testing conversion/efficiency?

i actually can't find it...it was one of those "hey, let's brew and bbq after work" kinda deals it wasn't my greatest recipe anyway. American pale ales and IPAs are not my strong points.

you can do an iodine test:

take a very small amount of wort (no grains) and put it into a small glass (like a shot glass) so it just layers on over the surface.

set the glass over a white piece of paper in a well-lit area.

take a dropper and add a few drops of iodophor (iodine solution used for sanitizing. your LHBS should have it.)

it changes color with starches, so if it turns black or purple, you don't have very good conversion. if there is no color change, your mash is finished.
