I've written about this in a couple books...here's my method...

For Grain...Heat 4 oz. of water to about 170F

Stir in 1.5 oz. crushed grain (about 4 heaping tablespoons)

Let sit for 30 min. Reheating for 30 seconds at 10 min. intervals to hold temp

Strain through coffee filter and taste

Try a combo of grains to see how they work together

For hops....Heat 4 oz. of water to about 170F

(about a minute in the microwave)

Add 2-3 grams of either whole or pellet hops (1/3 cup whole or about a dozen pellets)

Steep for 5 minutes

Filter through coffee filter

Drink, gag, spit

Most useful for comparisons
