So I'm gearing up for my first all grain batch and would like some tips on my projected process. Any advice would help.
First, my equipment:
(1) 8 gallon aluminum pot
(2) 2 gallon pots
"zapap" bucket style lauter tun
I'll be using the big pot as both my mash tun and brew kettle and the smaller pots as HLT's.
1. Bring appropriate amount of water to 120 F (water amount dependent upon recipe) add grains and stir for dough-in/protein rest for 20 min
2. Heat to 148 F for saccarification rest for 60 min or until conversion complete.
3. Dump pot into "zapap" lauter tun, vorlauf and start fly sparging with 170 F water from HLT's.
4. Stop when desired pre-boil volume is reached.
See any problems with the process? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
