I'm fairly new to all grain brewing, this is about my 8th batch. I've
always used a simple infusion mash but I just finished a batch recently
using a decoction mashing procedure and was extremely impressed with the
results. Its my own twist on a Munich lager and thought I would share
it with you.
- 2 Kg of Canadian 2-row malt grain
- 1 Kg of Munich Lager grain
- 3-4 cups of light DME
- 2 oz Hallertauer hops
- 1 Yeast Lab - Munich Lager yeast
I used the
decoction mashing procedure
found at sierra.stanford.edu in the
allgrain.faq. I tested the gravity before boiling and was just shy of
1.050 (what I was aiming for) so I added the 3 cups of DME to bump it up.
I added 1oz of the hops at hot break and the rest just 5 minutes before the
end of the boil. I did make a starter for the yeast and fermentation was
done on the 5th day. I racked it to secondary and lagered for 2 weeks.
Filtered, carbonated, relaxed and enjoyed!
