0.25 lbs 2.49 % Black (Patent) Malt 60 mins 1.025
0.25 lbs 2.49 % Chocolate Malt 60 mins 1.034
0.25 lbs 2.49 % Roasted Barley 60 mins 1.025
6.00 lbs 59.70 % Wheat Malt, Ger 60 mins 1.039
Would these be boiled the 60 min? I thought you steep the grains. I was going to steep these for 30 min after bring the pot to 165.
What are your thoughts?
For the grains in this recipe, this is the standard procedure :
- Place the crushed grains into a mesh bag.
- Add the grain bag to the water you will be using at about 100*F (this timing isn't so important).
- Heat water and remove grain bag between 168*F and 170*F. Typically this gives about 15-20 minutes for steeping depending on your heat source and water volume.
- Bring the wort to a boil then add the extract and start your timer.
Good luck and happy brewing!
