[quote=“Denny”][quote=“S.Scoggin”]i did my first partigyle a while ago. I did a no-sparge for the original beer like shadetree suggested. then i mashed the same grains again at 153, for an hour, while my other beer was occupying the burner.
I added a little extract to boost the gravity of the second beer. turned out great[/quote]
What was the purpose of “re mashing” for an hour if conversion was already complete? If you didn’t add any more grain you should have just been able to sparge out the rest of the sugars.[/quote]
at the time, my reasoning was to save time. my other beer was occupying the burner, and my cooler held temps better than my extra kettle. i guess i could have let the grain sit until my other wort was off the burner, but i hadn’t really thought about that…
I did a no-sparge on the partigyle, just the first (second) runnings with more volume. then added extract (i have a ton on hand for starters) to boost the gravity. finished out at 1.015-16. I’ll try to just sparge it next time. but it still turned out great
