Procedure

Two mashes were conducted semi-sequentially.  The primary mash consisted of 12 pounds of the base malt.  The seconadary mash consisted of 4 pounds base malt and 4 pounds of flaked oats.  

The secondary mash started first.  All grains added to a stock pot along with 2 gallons of water at room temperature.  That mash was raised to 155F over the course of 30 minutes, with the timer starting 15 minutes before the main mash.

The primary mash consisted of the balance of grains infused with water at 172F for a final temperature of 154F.  Infusion volume was 3.5 gallons.  The secondary mash was added at the 15 minute mark of the primary mash.

Mash out was performed by recovering 3 gallons of mash liquor, boiling it with an additional 1/2 gallons, and returning it.  After draining the tun, sparge with 3.5 more gallons of water.

 

Details:

Secondary mash temperature every 5 minutes: 69, 72, 105, 111, 130, 147, 155

First runnings, 27.5B; second runnings, 16B; start of boil at 19.8B
