Okay, without being too wordy, I need someone to help me settle a partial mash (One step infusion, ghetto sparge) recipe (particularly how to sub 2 row for some LME) I will brew a 2.5 gallon batch and also need water help as well.
here is what I have:
(Iron Rat Oatmeal Stout)
3.3lb dark LME
(I have 5lbs surplus 2 row that I want to use SOME of for the mash, this is where I need the help)
4oz Crystal 90
8oz Roasted Barley
2oz Black Patent
1oz Williamette (@boil)
0.5oz Williamette (@30 minutes)
The specialty grains were custom measured for my half batch, this was originally an extract-grain recipe. I recently acquired the surplus 2 row and would like to take first steps into partial mash (want to convert any sugars possible here) Looking for a higher OG than the style profile and want to step up the ABV to something like high 5's or low 6's. Can anyone make this easy for me? I don't have to use all the LME for this. I do, however, want to use enough 2row ro convert itself, the specialty grains and the oats. HELP! Will be brewing this on Monday night (4/2/07) Thanks in advance!
