Notes

Brewed 1/6/22

O.G.
Hydro
Tilt

A step mash is ideal for these beers. A good protein rest can happen for 10-15 minutes at about 122°F/50°C. Mash in at 144°F/62°C and rest for 40 minutes, jump up to 160°F/71°C and rest for 40 minutes and finally go to 170°F/77°C and rest for 10 minutes. Single infusion mashes aren’t uncommon in the American varieties of these beers, particularly when using American pilsner malt. I would target 148°F/64-65°C for a single infusion mash on this beer.
