**At 30 Minutes, remove 2 cups of grain and 1 cup of liquid to a separate skillet on med high heat. Stir this constantly until it noticeably darkens and the liquid is gone.

Add "decocted"(not a true decoction) grains back, trying to maintain 154F.

Boil for 30 minutes adding all hops for the full 30 minutes.

Add all DME after 15 minutes.

After youve mashed out do you just remove the grains and add the 3 more gallons for the boil? Or is it more than 3 to account for what's boiled off?
