Zymurgy / Re: Pilsner Urquell triple decoction
« on: January 19, 2012, 08:36:50 PM »
Someone mentioned earlier; a substituion for decotion, not being decotion dependent and other ways to acheive a decotion flavor profile without hours of labor. I would be very interested in this as i am a slave to decotion! I do it all the time; Bock, marzen, pilz, Lambic, hefe allways and i have even tried it with american styles; brown, porter, and it makes a damn good hoppy american red.  I find i get a highly fermentable wort from a double or tripple but not with a single. By highly fermentable i mean 75/80 percent. I find the beers to have an unmatched body and sweetness compared to other beers that dry using infusion.  This continues to mystify me and i continue to be a slave to decotion.   I have however been doing 2 hour boil, single infusion IPAs mashing at 158/160 and getting a similar flavor but with a lower att. 65/70 percent. I would love to brew up a side by side taste test faux decotion vs real decotion. If anyone has a method or methods please help, Im a slave to the slow, slow, slow decotion!

I have been doing this a lot as of late. I would recomend US04 and 1968. The 1968 brings up the point of diacetyl rests. I think this is important to bring up when talking about rushing things. 24 or 36 hours at or just below 70f after primary is complete can finish a beer up quickly and quite nice. I try to get all my hefes in the keg before 7 days, i think it is the secret ingredient! I also think IBUs amd hop oil contents play a big role in a beer tasting green. I have found any thing over 50 or so IBUs to require a month to come around.
