Rochefort is one of my favorites, this is definitely getting brewed. Keep us updated on how it ages

I am going to bump this recipe thread up with the hopes that someone sees it and can help me out. I would really like to give this a shot, as something I can brew at the end of this month and have it ready to give as a part of a gift pack at Christmas. Hopefully the timing on it would be right.

Can someone give me a step-by-step on the "Mash Type: Multi Step" procedure. I am new to AG, and my experience is to mash in with the given quantity of water at the given temp, drain, and then batch sparge, with quantities and temps as given by Beersmith. Is the procedure for this recipe different?

This will be my first attempt at a big beer.

Thanks!

I am surely not the expert on multi step mashing but I would assume setting up the mash schedule in beersmith just like any other recipe and that would tell you what temp your strike water would need to be for each step.

This sounds good too, I want to brew a high ABV and let it age a while. I will probably need to buy another carboy as my finance has dedicated my only carboy to full time apfelwine production

So, is the difference between step mashing and what I have been doing is that, instead of adding all of the mash water at the same time, I add it in parts over time at various temps?

yes, the water in all those steps = your preboil volume

I can't figure out how to get all of this into Beersmith, as there seems to be no "Multistep" option. I can choose to a regular infusion and add steps, but it wants me to list a water quantity with each step, and I don't see that info in the recipe.

I am thinking I may be in over my head here.

Okay, edited to add the following:

I figured out how to add the steps to Beersmith using the "double infusion" option, but it is giving me numbers that seem a bit confusing to me. The total volume of the steps is something around 8 gallons, which does not match the numbers in the recipe. Also, it tells me to sparge with a volume of zero.

I think that perhaps I need to find a recipe with a simpler procedure before I try to tackle this.

Personally, my feeling on the matter is that if you want to step-mash, the easiest way to do it would be to go my route and mash in your kettle with direct-fired heat. It requires a lot more attention during the mash because the thermal loss is great...but it's much easier than trying to figure out multiple infusions IMHO. My method is 133f for 30 mins, then sacch rest at 149-155f for 60 mins, then 158 for 20 mins or until an iodine test reads negative, then mashout at 167.

You don't absolutely need to do a step mash for this, but I like the results myself.

I brewed this about three weeks ago, and I've been out of town for a while so I'll only just be moving it to its secondary fermenter today. This was my first AG and I've got good feelings about the end result I'll let you know in a couple weeks what the verdict is.
