Default Maintaining Temperature for Partial Mash

Almost forgot... The kit had a muslin bag for the grains, and the instructions said to hold the bag up and pour sparge water through it to rinse the grains.

Lastly, I have since made a cool mini-MT/LT for partial-mashes using a 2-gallon cooler from Lowe's. I did a one gallon micro-batch to test it out – worked great!

Oh, those instructions... typically so outdated.

Next time don't even bother with a secondary. Unless you use fruit or other late adjuncts or need to bulk age for a few months, there is no benefit. To clear the beer, cold crash the primary for a day or 2, 2 weeks after fermentation is totally completed. That gives the yeast some time to clean up after its wild partying. Then bottle away.

Thanks for the tip! Cold crashing is not an option for me as there is no room in the fridge for a 5 gallon carboy :-/
