I use an Infusion Mash for all my beers. I also batch sparge too. I use roughly 1 qt. per lb. of grains in my mash. Heat 5 gallons of water to 162F. Add crushed grains and wait 90 min. The mash usually settles at around 150F. The rest is up to you as to your sparging method. Collect 14 gallons and boil for 60 min. Aerate and pitch your starter of yeast. As you see I am not a hop head. I prefer the taste of grains instead of hops. Use more for your taste. Next time I may add 1 lb. of Amber Malt for more flavour. This is an easy drinking bitter.
