Notes

Added Melaloidin malt to avoid need for decoction....

Single decoction mash: “Initial strike temperature 120° F (49° C) with 3 gallons water at 130° F (54° C). Raise temperature to 140° F (60° C) with 1.5 gallons water at 212° F (100° C). Pull 4 quarts (3.78 L) of thick mash to second pot. Raise decoction to 154° F (68° C) for 15 minutes with heat, then raise temperature to boil for 20 minutes. Combine decoction with main mash, which is now at a temperature of 136° F (58° C). Resulting temperature of combined mash is 150° F (66° C). Raise temperature with heat to 154° F (68° C) for 15 minutes. Raise temperature to 156° F (69° C) for 15 minutes. Raise temperature with heat to 168° F (76° C) for 5 minutes and mash out. Sparge with 6 gallons (22.71 L) 168° F (76° C) water.”
Primary fermentation for 2 weeks at 50° F (10° C).
Diacetyl Rest for 2 days at 68° F (20° C). Lower temp 2°/day to 34° (1° C).
