I'm looking to do another partial mash that I am mainly converting from the http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f67/aber...lone-ag-36912/
recipe. My concern is whether there is enough diastatic power from the 2-row malt to convert the specialty grains.
Here's the ingredients I'm looking at:
2.5 lbs. Munton's Extra Light Dry Extract
2 lbs. Briess 2-Row Brewer's Malt
1 lb. Flaked Maize
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Carapils
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Caramel 20
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Caramel 60
1/2 lb. Briess 2 Row Caramel 80
1/4 lb. Thomas Fawcett Pale Chocolate Malt
1/2 Oz. Target Pellets @ 60 mins
1/4 Oz. Kent Goldings @ 15 mins
Safale S-04 Yeast
I read somewhere that you would want an average of about 50+ lintner per pound. Is that accurate? By my count, the 2-row would give 140 lintner per pound and that's about all the power I would get. The grain bill is 5.25 lbs, so (2 x 140) / 5.25 = 53.33 which should get the job done, yeah?
Please edumacate me :P
