NotesSteps to this recipe
* Clean and Sanitize everything.
* Start heating just under 6 Gal of water to 158 F for the mash.
* Add PH stabilizer to the water.
* While mash water is heating mill all the grains (don't mill the corn flakes).
* Add the mash water at 158 F to the mash tun (adding grains will reduce this to 148 F).
* Add the grains includig corn to the mash tun stiring to release air trapped in the grains.
* Cap the mash tun and let the grains steep at 148 F for 75 min.
* Start heating about 3 1/2 Gal of water to 168 F for sparging about 45-50 min after starting steep.
* Add the sparge water at 168 F to the sparge bucket and secure hose for fly sparging.
* Take first runnings from the mash testing sugar content to ensure completion
* Fly sparge the mash adding the wort to the brew kettle at the same rate sparge water enters the mash tun
* Stop collecting wort when you have just under 6 1/2 Gal or when runnings measure 1.010 specific gravity.
* Start heating the wort to a boil.
* Add honey to the wort while heating.
* Add bittering hops to the wort once it is at a rolling boil and start timing your 60 min boil time.
* Add aroma hops to the wort 45 minutes into the boil (15 min remaining)
* Add irish moss (clarifier) and yeast nutrient to the wort 50 minutes into the boil (10 min remaining)
* When boil is finished remove from heat and crash cool the wort using a chiller or external ice
* Once wort has reached approximatly 78 F transfer to fermentation bucket
* Take a specific gravity reading and record this as yout original gravity
* Pitch both yeast types and airate.
* Seal the fermenter with an airlock and wait for it to transform itself into the nectar of the gods.
