I'm curious about your addition of the pilsener malt in the IPA. Can I pick your brain?

I like the complexity it adds in an IPA. It gives a drier malt tone then the pale malt alone, which I get a richer flavor from. The higher kilning of the pale verses the pilsner.

I knew you had a reason for it. Something to think about for my IPA coming up...

I do just that.

Did you ever source more under-modified Pilsen malt? I'd really like to experiment with some. I'm not really a lager guy, but the Kaiser has shown me a bit of the light (some get saved cause they see the light, others cause they feel the heat...) and now that I have a brew fridge I'm going to whip out an Oktoberfest (yes, I know) with a similar mash schedule to your Coronado CAP.

The grain I was using is no longer being imported. It was Budvar's grain and was being brought in by St Pats, but not any more. It really is too bad and I wish somebody would pick it back up, but...

The schedule here is one George Fix ran that skips the 50C step and so works well with the modified grains. I actually use a different vessel to decoct in. It is a 20 gallon kettle and wheels around on its own.



I am glad you are coming to see the light, there is more to life then hops and esters.

Austin Homebrew has (or had) an undermodified Pilsen malt. The man has his foot on my neck at work and I can't surf there, but I might check it out later at home. I don't think it is the famed Moravian malt, but who knows.

Regarding the 40C step with fully modified malt...is it just for extra efficiency or ? I was under the impression that a b-g rest was primarily of use with under-modified malt. I did see a nice jump in efficiency for my Hefeweizen when I added an acid rest which I assume hydrated the mash better (amongst other things) before getting to the business steps.

I'm thinking pretty much the same schedule as you have, with a thick decoction to go beta->alpha and a thin decoction (runoff, basically) to go alpha->mashout.

It does help with efficiency and with the whole mash process, especially run-off and clarity. My feeble brain loses the details, I just know it works well and I like the results. It is also enjoyable to do a bit more with the process then just the old dump-stir-rest of your basic single step infusion.

Fix talks about this in the following: http://realbeer.com/spencer/FAQ/Fix-mash.html
