higher mash temp w/007 to mimic 002?
« on: June 14, 2012, 06:43:11 PM »
I'm brewing a Special Bitter this weekend, recipe calls for 002, approx 70% attenuation, but I have a vial of 007 laying around I need to use. My question is should I mash higher (recommended is 152), say 156 or 158 to drop the attenuation a bit to account for the 007? Does that make any sense or am I messing around with the body and not going to end up with the beer I want?

That's my plan for my Foreign Export Stout as well.
