Before everyone points out my inefficiencies as well as my methods with doing this, please hear me out. I am trying a new partial mash with my new modded 5 gallon mash tun. I only have this and a grain bag. I am not worried about efficiencies right now, just the practice of trying a mash. My beer i am going after is similar to the Jalapeno Smoke Screen by Ballast Point (SWMBO really wants it).
So my ingredients are:
2# Peated Malt
1# Crystal 10L
2# Pale Malt
a heap of Golden Light DME
WL San Diego Super Yeast starter
1oz Fuggle for 60
1oz Northern Brewer for 5
So for grains specifically, I was going to mash 5 pounds at 143 for one hour and then again at 153 for 30-45 minutes, add DME after a boil, fuggles at 60, more dme, then NB at 5.
Just for a basic mash, will this work? If not, please bear with me and help me get the basic mash that I can do to get this to work. I only have a 5 gallon brew pot as well, so this isn't a full boil as well.
Wanted to get started soon, so a few beers down the gullet and Ill stop back by.
Ill send anyone who can help with this a freebie (within reason)
Thanks and Go Ravens,
