What is the process of rinsing? We are brewing our first batch tomorrow and it says to rinse after the first boil. I am not sure what this entails. The directions do not mention the process only the act of.... This is an Abita TurboDog recipe.

Yes, I know it'd be tedious to type it out but without seeing what you're referring to, we'd only be guessing as the what the instructions ask you to do.

Place crushed malts in a nylon steeping bag and steep in 3.0qts of water at 152 degrees F for 30 min.

RINSE grains with 1.5qts of water at 170 degrees F. Add water to make 3 gal, stir in dried malt extract and bring to a boil. ect.....


~Question: I do not understand to rinse with 1.5 qts at 170 deg. Do I discard of the original 3 qts or am I supposed to add the 1.5 qts to the 3 qts?

No keep the original 3 quarts. Lift the steeping bag above the pot and pour the 1.5 quarts of 170 degree water over the bag and let the "drippings" fall into the pot. Once the bag comes close to not dripping, then discard the bag of grains.

A colander held above the pot is very handy for the rinsing operation. I had one that I could hang on the top of the pot and let it to drain for a few minutes. Have fun with your brew you two!

Oh yeah, Welcome to HBT danpatemobile!
