Beersmith question before 1st AG?
I am trying to figure out Beersmith so I can attempt AG w/ ease this coming weekend. I have entered my equipment - 7.5gal kettle and 12gal coleman cooler mash tun.
I will be doing a single infusion mash and I am trying to understand what it's telling me to do. I'm doing a Dogfish Head 60min IPA clone with a grain bill of 13.4 pnds.
It tells me to mash in 16.74 qtz of water at 169.4 to mash at 154 F which I understand.
Then it tells me to mash out 9.37 qtz at 198.2 F but the step temp is 168. Do I dump almost boiling water into the mash tun and then wait till it cools to 168 before letting it sit for 10 minutes? This is where I'm having trouble.
