Note on brewing techniques
I mashed the grains in a 33 quart lobster pot, and regulated the
temperature by adjusting the two gas stove burners that the pot covered.
I fitted the pot with an "Easy-Mash" system (piece of copper screen
hose-clamped to a copper tube attached to a valve on the outside) for
sparging. Wort was chilled by running it through a coiled copper tube
immersed in a bath of water and ice cubes. I'm migrating to mashing in
an insulated drink cooler. The strike water does not need to be quite
as hot with this technique, and should be about 10 degrees higher
than the target mash temperature.
If you try any of these recipes, please let me know how it turned out.
Suggestions, questions and comments are welcome.
