Rich are you using ProMash? The procedure outlined on the GreenBoard appeared to work. I say appeared because this was only my first successful AG. Being that there is a, at first, confusing procedure to figure it out in ProMash I was not sure if things would work out, but I did get the right amount of water....

I did use ProMash but I figured the water needed as if I were fly sparging. Another consideration was sparge volume. I didn't want the volume to be so much that it couldn't be boiled in a 20 quart pot.

Man Rich, Thanks for doing this. I see by your sig it's in your secondary. I'm also wondering how Chimones has been going, but maybe it's another thread... I'll look....

That makes total sense. It's all about getting the max out of your grains and getting the best efficiency you can right?

You are quite welcome. I've enjoyed it and I hope it helps a few folks.
When I racked the beer, it was at 1.016 and it tasted great. I can't wait to try the finished product.


It looks like Chimones got the bug and went all grain. Check out this thread.
