All Grain Brewing / Re: Original Schneider mash schedule
« on: January 22, 2014, 05:43:16 AM »
I decided to keep this batch, but boiled 0.55 kgs of sugar in 700ml of water, cooled it and added to the fermenter.

The gravity was already at 1.010 (i pitched 48 hours ago). After adding sugar with water it went to 1.020.

Remember that the OG was 1.024.

My thought was that since it is all done, let's learn what happens from this.

Take care! :D

Hey denny.

I got it about beersmith. What I did not get is the total volume of water. Two runs of 14.8l is too much!

About the protein rest, I decided to use it because I read some places that wheat makes good use of a protein rest.

Thanks!

Wheat may need a protein rest, but judging by some research Drew Beechum has been doing for our book, it kinda depends.

As to water, try this....mash with whatever ration you like.  I use about 1.65 qt./lb., but if you;re going to do steps by infusion then you may want to start with less.  After you've done your steps, run off your mash.  Measure how much wort you get from it.  Subtract that from the amount you want to boil.  The answer you get is how much sparge water to use.  After you do it that way a couple times, you'll know how your system works and you can use that information in calculations in the future.

Nice!

I will try this!! :)

Thanks!

Hey!

Do you really think it's worth keeping it? Maybe boiling some sugar and adding to it will do it good?

I was thinking in rebrewing it and tossing this batch away.

I bought beersmith and already have set up all my stuff there! :D Very organized. Can't wait to brew a new batch. I created a step mashing profile:

protein rest: 30 mins at 50C
sacarification rest: 45 mins at 66C
sacarification rest: 45 mins at 70C
mash out: 10 mins at 77C

I read many stuff around and concluded that it's a good begining point that i can test and tune in future brews.

Another question i have: i will do a batch sparge and beersmith says i should do batch sparge in three steps (drain mash tun, 14.82l, 14.82l of 77C water). Does it mean that i drain, then put 14.82l, drain and then put 14.82l again? Or just 14.82l once?

Thanks guys!

Thanks!

Hi!
I think my problems were many!

1. Not the correct time for low and high rests
2. Maybe the grain was not milled properly.
3. Miscalculations on my volume.

Thanks for the insights.

I just bought beersmith. Was using different calculators. No good.

=)  will brew again and let you know what happened!

Well, I'm a beginner anyway! Haha

Take care!

Checked it again. I will brew it again this week and dump this one.

What you guys think?

Thank you guys for your insights! I will try it next time! =)

I actually did my mash this way (because I'm inexperienced)

30 mins at 50C
15 mins at 66C
15 mins at 70C
10 mins at 77C

Then did a batch sparge.

The expected OG was 1.043 but I messed something and my OG was 1.024.

Is there an easy way to fix it?

Take care!

All Grain Brewing / Original Schneider mash schedule

Hi guys!

I found a recipe for the original Schneider somewhere and could not understand the mash schedule very well.

It was printed this way:

Step Rest Start Stop Heat Infuse Infuse Infuse 
Step Name Time Time Temp Temp Type Temp Amount Ratio 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Strike 5 15 93 93 Infuse 97 7.58 1.00 
Protein Rest 5 125 122 122 Infuse 212 2.93 1.39 
Low Mash 95 65 152 152 Decoc 212 4.60 0.65 (Decoc Thickness) 
High Mash 40 30 166 166 Decoc 212 3.01 1.50 (Decoc Thickness) 
Sparge 5 30 168 168 Infuse 180 2.01 1.65 

How long does each part last? Is there a step time and a rest time?

Thanks for the help!

What are good sources to read about growing yeats? Can you share any good readings about that?

The new book called "Yeast" is a great resource. Probably has everything you want to know.

Is this the one you mentioned?

Yes, you can repitch indefinitely but over several repeats it may be hard to keep the original yeasts character or not get too many wild yeast in it. I probably will limit mine to under ten generations before starting from a fresh batch.

Nice!! Want to try that! :)

What did you read about that?

Hi guys!

Also, can you do what you did for as many generations as you want?

Thanks!
Cheers!

Euge, i will try it!!

It's still there, half is bottled, half is not (probably will toss this half).

Thanks!

Hi Euge.

I bottled it and it is not drinkable. I have lost 40 liters of this weizen. The fruity flavor made it kinda acid, something like that.

The important are the lessons learned! haha

The bag will work for me to brew some ales, test recipes. I will use the freezer to brew lagers and larger batches of ales.

Thanks! Take care

Hey guys!

I got a bag like this one made for me: https://www.cool-brewing.com/

I use frozen bottles of water to get the temperature i want. When i have results i will tell you if it's all fine.

Soon i will invest in a freezer with a Thermostat controlling temperature.

Thanks a lot for your insights.

Take care!
