    Recipe calls for mashout at 158°F?

    I brewed a RIS last weekend (BIAB, brew #13) based on this Old Rasputin clone recipe. I followed a lot of the process it calls for including a 60 minute mash at 152°F and a mash out at 158°F/70°C. I have been really interested in reading about the science of malting & mashing so I've done a lot...

    Need BeerSmith Equipment Profile for 20 Gal InfuSSion Mash Tun

    I recently got a 20 gallon Brewtech InfuSSion mash tun. It's bigger than I needed (so I think now...), but the 10 gallon wasn't big enough for my occasional big batch experiments where I split wort off into fermentors to test different fermentation parameters. Anyway, I was brewing a 5 gallon...

    How much does mash temp really effect mouthfeel?

    I have been brewing for about 4 years now, all grain from the beginning. I have always heard 146-150, for a thinner, more fermentable wort and 150-155 medium body, and anything higher for a thicker, chewy brew. I don't know if my mouth just isn't that sensitive, but I don't notice that much of...

    Holding Mash Temperatures

    Greetings Fellow Brewers, I'll be doing my first BIAB all grain in a couple of weeks and after reviewing a lot of threads and videos it looks like most of you insulate (in a variety of methods) to keep your mash temps close to desired state. However I've seen a few folks simply measure the temp...

    Long Recirculating Mash Question

    Has anyone experimented with the idea of mashing for 2+ hours? Long story short, I can't lock myself in my garage or basement for a proper brew day so I've been brainstorming ways to modify my brew day to accommodate my family and children's needs. My HEX (standalone HERMS) will maintain...

    Low F.G. from overzealous S-04/low mash temps(?). Thoughts on a fix for the future?

    So I brewed what I think is a delicious British-style special bitter, as close to style guidelines (2008) as I possibly could. The color, flavor, and IBU level are all spot-on to what I was going for. The problem is the F.G. Minimum for the style is 1.009, I'm sitting at 1.006. The grain...
