No mash tun, I have the equipment for extract. I do full boils on a turkey fryer and have a 9 gallon pot. I want to eventually go to AG but want to get my feet wet with a mini mash.c.n.budz said:are you looking for stove top mini mash without using a mash tun?
For winter brewing I do a stovetop mini mash using a big nylon grainbag and my boil kettle for a mash tun.
Mash at 150-155* with about 1.5 quarts of water per pound of grain for 60min (all the grain goes in the giant nylon bag during the mash) Sparge in the boil kettle with 1 quart per pound of grain at about 170* for around 15 min. Then just continue brewing as if you are doing extract w/ steeping grains
