For those that are doing a decoction on the wheat's, are you going single, double or , I shudder, triple?
I do a double, but I think the critical factor is to do at least one decoction prior to conversion. The single post-conversion decoction doesn't have near the effect, IMO.
so decoct from say a ferulic acid rest to sac rest? (if that's possible 111 to 150+ seems impossible).
Very possible. I've done the "Enhanced Double Decoction" from Kai's decoction wiki page for a Hefeweizen, which goes from 111 to 152 using a thick decoction. It required maybe 50% of the grist to be pulled and boiled.
