Yes, you can do a single decoction to get to your mashout temp. This will still give you a fair

Posted in thread: Sparge After Decoction on 04-05-2016 at 12:40 AM
I haven't experienced but I also haven't done many decoctions. You might try adding in rice
hulls when you add your decocted grains back into the mash tun before sparge. This will likely

YFor kicks, I tested the mash from above, rather than the stream out of the spigot. What I
found is that the mash was 148F. I expected there to be some stratification and the heat would
mostly be abso...

for 60 min bittering?(Not ctz/Columbus, but ones like chinook, ahtanum, fuggles?)2) experiences
Posted in thread: What to do with the trub/sludge post-boil on 01-12-2016 at 01:43 AM
If so, I thought the purpose of fast chilling after boil was to precipitate proteins, so that
they wouldn't make it into the fermentor, and this would seem to be at ends with
