General Homebrew Discussion / step infusion mash for german pils
« on: March 23, 2015, 03:58:19 PM »
I was looking at some of Kai's notes on german pilsner, and came across one of his mash schedules for german pils. It involves a two step mash, with 1.3qt/lb water at 145F for about 45minutes, then an infusion to bring mash thickness up to 2.00qt/lb and 160F for another 45 minutes. followed by batch sparge of 4.00 gal.

I have not done this before, and curious about how this might impact the fermentability / body of the beer....i would normally target 1.010 or lower for my pils with single infusion around 149-150F.

recipe is 95.4% pils, 2.3% carafoam, 2.3% melanoidin.

I'm also going with his soft water profile:

Equipment and Software / New growler

Picked this growler up on ski trip and visit to EBC brewery. Filled it with their black hops IPA.

Anyway, very nice, rubber coated and they are double wall insulated, and you can get a cap that has co2 and pressure relief and valve for tap. This one is 64oz but they have 1gal coming and on kickstart.
