  1. Add about 1.25# of your 6-row to the cereal adjuncts. This malted barley will provide the enzymes needed to aid in converting and breaking down the sugars, as many cereal adjuncts don’t have sufficient enzymes by themselves.

  2. add 10 quarts of water to produce a fairly thin mash. This is a simple infusion, but you want to target 151. Hold the gelatinization temperature range for 20 minutes.

  3. Slowly raise the temperature of the cereal mash up to a gentle boil and hold it for 20-30 minutes. As you do this the mash will go from a grainy mixture to a pretty sloppy gelatin mess that should coat the back of your spoon. When you reach the liquid goo phase, the cereal mash is good to go!

  4. Finally add the gooey mixture into your main mash. If you are working directly with the hot liquid, you can often use a decoction calculator to figure out how high your starting mash temperature needs to be when adding the boiling cereal mash to hit your desired sugar conversion range – which is usually between 148-156 F (64-66 C). The other option is to use cold water to bring your cereal mash down to the target temperature before adding it to the main mash. After that you continue your conversion phase and sparge as you would with any regular all grain mash.
