Notes

Mashing: After 15 min of Protein Rest, take out 40pst of the mash leaving as much water behind as you can. Maintain the temperature of the main mash for now. Rise the temperature of the decotion mash to 68C stirring constantly. Add water from main mash if it's too thick and dry. Keep at 64C for 5 min. Rise to a boil stirring constantly. Boil for 5 min. Add back to main mash one cup at the time. Monitor temperature, it should never pass 64C. Cool remaining decotion mash to 64C and add to main mash. Test for conversion with iodine by placing several drops of the mash, with no visible particles of grain or husk, in a small puddle on a white porcelain dish and letting it cool. Then, placing a drop of iodine into the middle of the puddle, observe any color reaction along the edge of the iodine. If you observe the colors blue or black, then there’s still starch in suspension and the mash needs to continue. However, if brown appears or there is no color change, then it’s safe to prepare for sparging. Day 10 of primary fermenting: Meassured gravity to 1.012. Rise temperature to 20C for to days. Reduce temperature to 8,5 on the morning of the third day. Transfer to secondary in the evening or next morning. Day 13 of fermenting after diacetylrest: Meassured gravity to 1.008. Racking to secondary and leave for 20 days. Then transfer to keg for ageing and carbonating for 60 days.
