    2 row malt
    Light wheat malt
    C-60 malt

    Fuggles
    Nugget
    EKG

    The hops are pretty old, I'm assuming they're ok but weaker. So let's shoot for something fairly hoppy and if they are weak, it'll still be beer.

    Recipe me something.

    I would go as follows:

    8# 2-row
    4# Light Wheat
    .5# c60

    Mash around 153-155

    Use nugget to bitter, Ekg for 15m, all the fuggle at flameout.

    This would make beer and is pretty much how my recipes go.


    I took a short one a couple hours ago. It was nice. --

    Oh, I don't know your efficiency, but I always err on the low side because I've never been pissed that I accidentally made the beer too strong.

    I'm not sure what my efficiency is either... But that would be a pretty good sized beer for 5 gallons. I like that mix, maybe trim it by 10%.

    Throw some rice hulls in too. Wheat makes me anxious without it.

    Since I don't have any of those..... Maybe I'll to the volumes you said and grind a little more course sacrificing efficiency for no stuck sparge.

    You'd probably be alright without them at this ratio anyway, but a coarser grind would be good insurance. Agreed.

    Oh, and I don't have any 2-row. I just added that because I'll need it anyway. I could use MO instead of 2-row since it has to be purchased.

    Soak the grain for a few hours before milling and you'll get more intact hulls. That will help a lot too

    Good deal. Try tasting some of the hops before deciding on whether to use them or not. They should taste. Well. Hoppy. Not soapy or grassy or otherwise gross or meh.

    Good call. I also have some leaf centennial. But I'm sure those are toast. They're older and well, leaf keeps worse than pellet.

    Taste test them too. If they taste good you can toss them in around 15 minutes or so before flameout.

    Use whatever you have left of the good tasting hops either at flameout or for a dry hop. Use up the old inventory.

    You Have MO?
    If so.... roast a pound at 320 degrees for a half hour or so.
    Let it sit for a week.
    Add to....
    10 pounds MO
    3 pounds wheat
    0.75 pounds C60.
    Mash at 154.
    Add 2 ounces of the nugget for 60 minutes
    2 ounces of the fuggles at 5 minutes.
    (This is assuming the hops are a little old, and the AA is not what it used to be.)

    Should have no issues with the sparge.
    Do a ten minute first wort boil, during the first sparge rest.
    S-04 would be better, but S-05 will be just fine

    A little wheat will make it "crisp," and impart a soft maltyness. With a flavorful barley malt, this can make an exceptional beer. Great for head retention too.
    I used to avoid it, until I began to delve into some of the historical German styles.

    If you really want to elevate the recipe I gave, add a pound or two of oatmeal as well.
    Boil it thick, and add to the mash.
    Still shouldn't have any issues with the sparge

    Don't spend the extra money on flaked oats from a brewing supplier. .. just pick up some "old fashioned" oatmeal. Boil it just like you were fixing it for breakfast. Make it fairly thick, and let it cool to the target mash temp before you add it, and your strike water. Otherwise you have to do some tricky thermodynamics calculations

    It breaks them down in some way that makes the good stuff more soluble and more possible to convert the starches. And they don't have a tannin content that makes 170+ a problem

    You will get a whole lot more out of them if you boil first. Technically, they are "pre cooked"... but don't add much if you just add to the grain the way they are.
    You used to be able to buy oat malt. That stuff was awesome, and is what should really go into an oatmeal stout. But it is no longer commercially available. Sad really.

    10lbs MO

    2lbs wheat
    4oz of c60
    4oz of c15.

    That's the grain bill. I font really know anything about special B so I'll leave it out unless someone says otherwise. Also have midnight wheat, but I can't see what that would add.

    Also, I tried conditioning by dumping all of the grain (13.5lbs) in a bucket then dumping about a quart of water in the bucket, mixing with a big spoon then putting the lid on and rolling it around to mix further. Then let sit for about 3 hours. I'm not sure, but it looks like a wicked good grind.

    Also, I tried conditioning by dumping all of the grain (13.5lbs) in a bucket then dumping about a quart of water in the bucket, mixing with a big spoon then putting the lid on and rolling it around to mix further. Then let sit for about 3 hours. I'm not sure, but it looks like a wicked good grind.



    I never did condition my grain, and always got a good grind. What drove you to start conditioning?


    I took a short one a couple hours ago. It was nice. --

    I'm using the cheapest possible mill. I can set it to leave 25% unground or set it to flour.

    Plugged it all in. This calculates to a 52% efficiency.... I think.

    That seems wrong. I was thinking it was the low side of my system, which was 75% or so. But I haven't calculated that in many years.

    it's about 56% efficiency using my estimates for ideal extraction and a batch size of 5.25 gal.

    Well damn. I thought the crush looked pretty stellar. And the base grain was newly purchased. And the mash wash in the 1.15 qts/lb range. 152 mash temp. I don't know pH. I batch sparged with room temp water because the end of the mash snuck up on me and screw waiting for that water to heat up. Next time I'll try stirring more and sparging with appropriately heated sparge water.
