First of all, you are a brewing badass.

If I didn't have a thermometer, I'd be tempted to do decoction mashing. By starting with "blood temperature" water/grain and then pulling out roughly 1qt of thick mash per pound of grist, boiling it, re-adding it to the mash, and then repeating 3 times you are effectively step mashing up through protein rest, sacc rest, and mash out. Lots of beer was brewed that way once upon a time without a thermometer or "modern" brewing equipment.

Keep us posted.

Cool, can't wait to hear what comes out. Might be an acquired taste, but I'm sure it'll be interesting. You have bottling equipment up there?

Never been to Argentina, but in Peru it's mostly "beer like substance." How does the beer there compare?
