Uncle Clyde's Dog Paw Brown Ale
Source: Keith Haessly
Recipe added: 01/19/98
This was my second batch using the partial mash method. The best way to keep the grains at 150 degrees is to preheat your oven to 150 while you are heating the water on the stove top. I found it worked best to bring water to 160 before adding the grains to allow for cooling when the grains are added. I used four muslin bags, each containing a little more than a pound of grains for maximum steepage.
For Bottling I reserved unpitched wort at boil time. This was my prefered method until I got me kegging system for Christmas.
