Howdy, i am fairly newer to the brewing hobby, I am brewing this all grain 5gallon batch on Wed night and i had a question about the mash. I am thinking of mashing it at 160 or 162. Your receipe says the following
Single-Infusion, 12QT water, 60 miuntes @ 154*F
What are the Cons to brewing a little higher? Don't higher temp bring out the sweetness? pardon me for my noobish
Also i want to take some SG readings... when i start my mash and another reading @ 30 Mins and another @ 60... my final SG should be around what? 1.044? or 1.009?
