So I am looking to try an Alt recipe but one the highest rated recipes in the database https://www.brewersfriend.com/homebrew/recipe/view/219836/bakke-brygg-altbier-25-l has some helpful and lengthily instructions that look to be in German and even with Google's Translate, leaves some open questions in my mind, which is par for the course with that app which is OK, it got me in the ball park when I'm looking for my seats behind the dugout but I digress. "The amount of pulp and rinse water you should use depends on the equipment and method you use. As an estimate, we can say that you can use 20 liters of water and 13.6 liters of rinse water for this beer. Some brewing machines (eg Speidel Braumeister) may require larger amounts of mashing water. Always check the manual of the equipment you are using. Blade at 66 degrees for 75 minutes. Exfoliate at 77 degrees for 5 minutes if you have the opportunity to increase the temperature of the blade. Cool down to 16 degrees before pitching the yeast. Fermentation of 17 degrees to storm fermentation begins to decrease (typically after 3-5 days). Then increase to 20 degrees and hold for the rest of the fermentation period (a total of 14 days). Yeast options: WLP011, WLP029, Safale K-97 " 17 degrees to storm fermentation ??? What the heck is that? I've heard " storm's a brewing" but I don't think that's what they mean! I'm thinking it means "to start and bring about". I also thought I would has seen something about decoction but nope, nothing. Based on what I have read so far, there are methods that use decoction mashing and ones that don't and I am completely open to the harder decoction method but I just need some step by step instructions since I have not found a good description or YouTube to tell me the "how to" to date. I'm looking for suggestions Forum Folks!
