Jumping head first into all-grain brewing. Have done a few extract brews and now I am hooked. I built a HERMS system and would like to try it out with a Rochefort 10 clone recipe this weekend. The recipe calls for a decoct mash schedule. Is it possible to convert this to a mash schedule that works with my equipment? Sorry if this is a novice question, I am still in the learning stages.
Here's the original decoct mash schedule:
Step Time Description Step Temp
30 min Add 20.63 qt of water @ 143.5F 135 F
30 min Decoct 3.24 qt of mash and boil it 145 F
30 min Decoct 7.44 qt of mash and boil it 165 F
15 min Decot 3.71 qt of mash and boil it 172 F
Can I simply follow this mash schedule and instead of boiling would I bring the mash up the step temp and hold it for the specified minutes?
Thanks guys, learning a lot from this site.
