Help...need more color for porter mid mash

Hi All,
I am making an all grain version kind of like the Midnight Wheaten porter.

6# 2-row
6# wheat
1# flaked wheat
1# chocolate wheat
.5# caramel wheat
.5# rice hulls
OG 1.062

I just mashed in, and it looks kinda light brown, and my recipe says SRM 24. (yes, I should have noticed that).

now I’m off to work, leaving the mash for about 5 hours. (have been doing this for last few batches with great results).

Question is…
if color still seems NOT BLACK ENOUGH, how do I add color mid mash?

I could run to NB and get some black patent? about .5#?
add to mash before drain first runnings? how long?

it’s at about 155* now, I usually only lose 5* in 5 hours.

thoughts anyone?

thanks!

4oz of carafe should do the trick. Just add to mash right before you sparge.

I think Dan nailed. Run your SRM numbers if want, but that’s exactly what I would do (and it has absolutely nothing to do with my affinity of Die deutsche Fußballnationalmannschaft).

Less chance for astringency with this approve as well. Works really will for CDA’s.

Cross Dressing Amateurs like doing it pre-sparge, huh?
