Just about time to mash in...

I always use Buffer 5.2 in my mash... the MW crush also looks a little finer than B3's. On top of that I am also trying out a 2qt/lb mash to see if I get any apparent rise in eff.

I will be pumping over 6.0 gallons of 183F water to the MLT, to preheat and strike when it reaches 164F in the MLT as depicted on the MLT through the wall thermometer.

Transferred... the MLT soaked up 11F, so it is sitting at 172F... taking the lid off, adding my Buffer5.2 and wating a few minutes to reach 164F to mash in.

Added my final 1 gallon of water to my HLT, it is sitting at 158F ready for the recirc.

EDIT: One benefit to such a thin mash is that it is REALLY easy to get a nice mash in... breaking up dough balls is much easier in soup than it is in oatmeal. It is recirculating nicely at 155F, at a rate of about 1.5 gallons/min.

This is how we mash at CCB. The mash temp varies between 154.8 and 155.1.

This is how we fly sparge at CCB...

Grain bed never went below 166F

Wort actually cooled to 150F in the kettle, garage temp. 57F

Reached a rolling boil at 100% on the 5500W element. Dialed it back to 65% to maintain a nice strong boil.

Collected 7.4 gallons for the boil... the HLT was DRY and the MLT only contained ONE QUART of wort at a SG of 1.008!!! This is what happens when you nail down your water requirements

This system allows me to do A LOT of messing around while brewing. So, I have been able to keep up easily posting as I brew.

Thanks!
