uh, no thanks! i worked me arse off doingthe double decoction. i had only done a decoction once, and it was with another guy on his system. it would have been nice to have an extra set of hands.
here was my schedule:

mash in at 104 F for 5 min.
heat to 122 F in 10 min, hold for 25 min
pull 30-40% of the mash, heat in 15 min to 160 F, rest for 15 min
heat in 15 min to boiling, boil for 20 min, stirring to avoid scortching
add decoction back to main mash for a temp of about 145 F, hold for 10 min
pull 1/3 of the mash for a 2nd decoction and rasie temp to 160 F in 5 min
hold for 10 min
bring decoction to boil in 15 min, and boil for 20 min
mix back to main mash for a resulting temp of about 145 F, rest 15 min for saccharification rest
heat to 169 F and hold for 10 min
no recirculation, and sparge w/ 170-174 F water for 90-100 min
boiled for 105 min, added .5 oz German Perle hops @ 60.

long day!

So is this decoction mashing worth it to you guys, you think?

Good thing you did't change your Avatar, Orrelse. For a moment you got me confused here.

Or should I bow and say Dude.

I only have a 5gal cooler as a mashtun an decotion mashes make it easy for me to do a step mash w/o having to start with a very thick mash. But I only plan to use them for darker German style beers where I actually want to do a step mash. American and British beers shouldn't have a problem with a single infusion mash since head retention (and maybe acidification) isn't so important anyway.

i let you know once i taste the dunkel!

i've only done one other, and it was a group brew. it was doppelbock, and it came out good, but not a good comparison. i need a wheat vs. wheat.

it was fun, and a cool experience. i'll do it more often for sure.
