Re: Return of the wheat flour mash
- I posted it here before but here's a repost.
4kg wheat flour + 1kg malt. Mix flour + some 200g malt to 8 liters of
50C water. Should settle to 40C. Add 9 liters of striking water and
mix well - should turn to liquid and settle at 65C. Heat to boil
(stirring) and let boil for some 15 minutes. Cool to 65C and add the
rest of the malt. After it's cooled to 30C or so pitch the yeast.
