Update: It's been a year now and it's just wonderful. We had problems with the keg and also have not had a group brew in months. Thus, we still have quite a bit left in the keg. It has smoothed out nicely. Quality stuff...

can you tell more about how you mashed the grain? I saw your other post where you asked New Holland Brewery and they gave their tips.

So.. How did you do it?

Poobah58 03-01-2010 10:40 AM

Protein Rest: Added 12 qt of water at 145 F (122 DegF for 30 min)
Saccrification: Added 16.00 qt of water at 190 F (150 DegF for 90 min)
Used LOTS of rice hulls.

so you mashed all 35lbs of grain all at once or did you split it up into two batches?

What volume did you use for sparging?

I just plunged into All grain last week and brewed three 5 gallon batches and I want this to be my next batch, today.

Is there anything you would do differently or change?

Yep, mashed all at once. Shoulda used more rice hulls. Was quite the time sparging. Next time I might split it up into two. If you want to drink it right away, cut back some of the late hops. If you can wait a few months, leave it as is. Keep me posted.

I wish I would have used more rice hulls.

How much did you use?

I used 1 gallon freezer bag full. I ran out of space in my 10gallon cooler.
