Mashing Temp for Denny Fav 50?
« on: Today at 08:20:21 AM »
 I usually mash at 67c when fermenting with US05, as that yeast has pretty high attenuation.

Should I lower it for the DF50 to 66c? Since it seems this yeast leaves a body, and I want to finish slightly dry than sweet for a B.IPA. OG-1.066 and aiming to finish 1.012ish.

Honestly, there's no set mash temp for a yeast. It's more related to your grist makeup and what you're trying to achieve in a given beer.

I respectful disagree. Same grist and mash temps with dif yeast will yield dif results. I find the US05 attentuates more than the liquid version of the same strain. Just checking if the others keep their mash profile the same as when using say the chico strain or do they make any slight changes.

Of course different yeasts attenuate differently in a given grist, I get that. Just saying that recommending mash temps just based on yeast strain leaves most of the variables out of the equation, ie., grist, beer style, your goals. But to answer your question, I don't mash differently for 1450 than I would for 1056 .

Maybe, but not much. Mash temp makes much less difference than it used to with most malts.  There is no reason to target any specific mash temp using 1450.  I use it with a wide range of mash temps.  Truthfully, the best way to control body and attenuation is through the recipe.

Agree with you both.. Just that I've got a recipe that I'm happy with and don't wish to tinker with it.

Thanks, I'll see how it goes!

While 1450 leaves a full, silky mouthfeel, it doesn't do it by leaving you with a high FG.
