Kenny's Irish Red round duex

    I brewed a PM of this last year. It was ok. I did something wrong. Since I feel bad about that and I strive to live up to Kenny's expectations, here's another shot.
    I'm doing a 10 gallon AG batch. Due to equipment restraints I'm planning a 1.5 qts/lb mash and a 5.5 gallon sparge. Otherwise I'll follow the original recipe instructions.

    The S-04 is better for this .... the Windsor tends to under attenuate

    Awesome. I'm planning next weekend sometime this will be my first all grain 10 gallon batch. I've done 10 gallon PMs but not legit AG.

    13.5 gallon MLT. I'm going to mash thin. 1.5 its/lb, I've read up to 2.0 qts/lb is acceptable. In order to get the volume out of one sparge I think I'm going to need 1.75 qts/lb.

    Hey, new thought here. First runnings into a bucket like I've been doing for the last year anyway. That will eliminate the equipment constraint and I can do this as Kenny says with two equal sparges and mash at 1.25 qts/lb. I feel better now.

    Cool.
    remember ... 20 minute sparge rests, with lots of stirring

    I like the esters that Windsor puts out .... but S-04 is a beast, and is a little cleaner, more appropriate for the style

    One minor tweak to the recipe... .75lbs of crystal 60 and 15. I measured out a bit much of the 15 when I was cussing about not getting the 60 from Farmhouse. BUT everything is ground and in a bucket waiting for brewday.

    Also, @Kenny what are your thoughts on water for this recipe? My well water is irony hard that we soften the heck out of. Should I go get some RO?

    Iron bad.
    Carbonates are good.
    better soft RO than iron.

    Dang. Ok. It's not irony after its softened. But I don't know Crap about water chemistry.

    it's full of other shit after it's softened, full.

    i would get good bottled/RO water and start from there.

    and i would get your softened water analyzed.

    How's that for hitting target temp?
