Doing a partial mash and using a trial version of BeerSmith. My partial mash technique is:
- Place the grains in 150-155F water for 60 minutes
- Drain the grains
- Place the grains into 170-175F degree water for ten minutes in brew pot
- Drain grains again
- Combine all water in the brew pot
- Bring to boil, add extract, etc.
Looking at BeerSmith, I'm not sure what Partial Mash technique describes mine. Single Infusion, No Mash Out, Batch Sparge, etc.
Also, I'm confused by the temps/times in BeerSmith. I selected "Single Infusion, Light Body". It calls for 2.5qt at 161F to step at 150F for 75min. Then 1.6qt of water at 200F (?!?!?!) to step at 168 for 10 min.
Can anyone help me represent my process in BeerSmith (and understand what BeerSmith is recommending because 200F seems nuts)
