Yup. I'm on my blackberry a lot of the time, and this is the best way to mark threads I want to come back to later when I'm on a computer.

Great writeup deathbrewer, I'll be attempting my first PM brew this weekend with this method. Thanks.

Water profile is MUCH more important for mashing than it is with extract.

I use filtered water from safeway. I just fill up two 5 gallon water jugs and I'm ready to rock. It only costs $1.50 for 5 gallons.

I'm beginning to use the 5.2, although my beer turns out fine with just the filtered water.

I'll eventually get my filter installed, but I really don't trust the pipes at my house.

For top-off water, I always use bottled water, either in 1 gallon or 2.5 gallon size. A little extra cost, but much less of a PITA than boiling and cooling water.

DeathBrewer I have been using your method with great results and have been getting braver with every brew. The last one was a Blonde and I only used 1.5 pounds of extract, the rest was grain. The OG was to be 1.042 and I got 1.041, I missed the OG by .001 so I was very pleased about that. Dont know how it will taste but time will tell.

I have a 5 gallon pot and a 7.5 gallon pot. I have been thinking about using your method and doing a very simple Pale Ale all grain. Can it be done this way?

7.5 pounds of two row malt
1/2 pound Crystal Malt
Hops
yeast

Can this be done with good results or do I have to aquire a mash/lauter tun?

It'll work fine as long as you can get that much to a boil or split the boil between two pots. I use this method regularly to do all-grain with the same size pots. The 5 gallon will work perfect for mashing ~8 lbs of grain.

I have a thread on Stovetop All-Grain in my sig below.

I have a question about the mashing portion of the process. Once you place the grains into the boil pot and cover it do you turn off the heat and let it sit or do you turn the heat down to maintain your temp?

I turn the heat off. It should maintain temp fairly well and if there IS a drop, it's not a big deal. If you want to maintain heat, I'd suggest wrapping it in blankets or towels, not using direct heat.

Good, looks like I did it correctly then. Always like to hear that. Thanks again for the tutorial it really helped a lot. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
