Hi All
After reading John.P:
http://www.howtobrew.com/section3/chapter14-4.html
and:
http://morebeer.com/brewingtechniques/bmg/noonan.html
and looked at the weyermann grains specifications.

I still don't understand if I need single or double infusion.
my recipe for a Paulaner Clone will be (All weyermann):
Caramunich Malt
Munich II Malt
Pilsner (2 Row)
Wheat Malt

Can you please give me some guidelines how to decide if Single or Double is needed (For this recipe and also general as for other recipes I will do in the future)?
Because as I understand if I do Double and the grains are Fully Modified it can Harm this type of Beer and all the reading didn't helped me get some guidelines.
Thanks

Very few malts in North America are under-modified so a single infusion is all that is needed.

I used their malts in a similar style beer. One was done with single infusion, one with a step, couldn't really tell the difference between the two so to simplify things just go with a single infusion and you'll be fine.

I once asked someone at Weyermann this specific question.

His response was simple,
"Weyermann malts work with all common mashing regimens"

OK thanks a lot all
I think it will be a nice experiment to do both and try to taste any differences

duboman except taste did you noticed any difference in the OG, Efficiency etc....?.

No, everything in both batches went according to plan but I've been using my system for several years and it's pretty dialed in and I get great consistency regardless of the beer. YMMV.

Click on Weyermanns website for their recipes using their malt. Most recipes use a double infusion, some a triple infusion, some decoction. Weyermanns has a new malt out called recipe grade. I think they're going to produce 2 varieties. Standard modified and low modified. The low modified will be less modified than their Boh Pils light and dark floor malt.
