If their brewhouse allows for decoction (separate mash boil kettle), they can easily do that. They let the mash settle and pump the desired volume of decoction from the bottom of the mash tun to the mash boil kettle.

Okay, so you have that layer of protein goo that settled on top of your mash in the video.

Would you sparge onto that? Spoon it off? Stir it up, then vorlauf and hope it all stayed behind?

Is it good to remove or do you lose something (FAN/lipids for yeast food, body, head retention?)

Nathan,

Don’t worry about that protein. I’ve just shown it as an FYI and there was even more after the first run-off. But that got mixed into the grains when I stirred in the sparge water. It’s the same stuff you leave behind in the boil kettle when you rack the wort into the fermenter.

It's because you boil a part of the wort. The stuff you have in the lauter tun will be missing from the trub in your boil kettle.

Ich wollte nur sagen, danke schön für die ausgezeichnete Video! I have been wanting to make a classic Bamburg rauchbier for some time and the best recipe I found called for a double decoction. I read the steps in Palmer several times but watching you doing it made it crystal clear. And the accent and music were icing on the cake - took me back to my last Reise nach Bayern!

Don't know if it was mentioned already, but video 3 is saying it is no longer available.

It worked for me when I just tried it. Even after I logged out of Youtube. I'll check the links.
