I am getting ready in a week or two to brew my first all grain kit ( dead ringer ipa).
Some instructions I see call for a mash out and some don’t. I did just get the latest John Palmer how to brew book and will start reading about it, but I was just curious what you guys do.
I have the two 10 gal coolers set up for mash and sparge as well as a 10 gal boil kettle ( and my trusty old 5 gal as well to have on hand to heat extra water if necessary ).
My intent is to set the flow so I can sparge and fill my kettle very slowly. Just not sure about the mash out requirements.
Thank you for any insight,
