Mash Schedule: Single Infusion, Light Body, Batch Sparge
|Name||Description||Step Temperature||Step Time|
|Mash In||Add 4.38 gal of water at 159.1 F||148.0 F||75.0 mins|
- Began brew day around 8am. Heated up ~4.5G of water to ~200F then transferred to the mash tun using the pump.
- Temp became around 175F after transfer. Let sit in the mash tun while I had breakfast.
- Added the grain with the water around 163F and stirred until it got to about 150F then let it in the mash tun for 1 hour.
- Added my sparge water (just under 5G) to my other kettle and began heating with 20 mins left in the mash.
- Vourlaufed for ~10 mins while the water heated up.
- Mashed out through the pump to the brew kettle. Collected just under 3G.
- Re-arranged the hoses and connected the sparge head to the mash tun.
- Pumped the ~170F water at a slow rate through the sparge head. After all the water was moved I removed the sparge head and stirred gently.
- Re-arranged the hoses again and mashed out through the pump to the brew kettle.
- Collected just under 8G @ 1.048. This was slightly under, so I am going to boil for an extra 15 minutes.
- Turned off heat and added whirlpool hops after starting the whirlpool (forgot to let it cool to 190F). Whirlpooled for 20 minutes.
- Chilled to 68F then pumped it into the sanitized fermenter.
- Ended up with ~4.6G @ 1.060. This is low, but better than last brew.
- Took gravity reading as it looked mostly done and it was 1.012. Going to let it sit until Saturday then keg to clean up any fermentation byproducts.
Kegging day, hydrometer reading is 1.011
- Racked on top of dry hops. Got about 4.2G.
- Purged with co2 3 times.
- Added 1 tsp of gelatin to 1/4 cup of cold water. Stirred and heated in 10s increments until the temp was about 145F and it was fully dissolved
Added to keg then purged with co2 3 times.
- Set to 20PSI to burst carbonate for 24 hours, then will dial down to serving pressure, ~12psi
