Taste Notes

One of the best Hefs I brewed yet. A bit more work on the mash but well worth the time.

Notes

1. Mashed in at 114 F for ferulic acid (a precursor for the molecule that gives the spicy clove character) using 2 qrts of water per pound of grain. 2. After 15 minutes - up to 125 F for a protein rest 3. 10 minutes- up to 144 F to start the conversion of starches into sugar. 4. 10 minutes into the Saccharification rest I pulled about 1/3 of the mash (thicker than the mash, but still with plenty of liquid and heated it to a boil over 30 minutes. 5.After boiling the decoction for 10 minute I added the decoction back to the main mash for a second, warmer, Saccharification rest at 161 F to finish off conversion. I let the mash rest here for 20 minutes before proceeding with the brew.
