I am trying to prep for my first PM and I’m looking for some input on my ideas. Here’s the plan:
Want to do the Tripel and split it into two batches. (don’t have equipment for 5g’s nor the desire to drink that much of the same thing)
first question is, I can hold 152 degrees on the stove…would that be better than/worse than/indifferent to wrapping it in blankets or putting it in a cooler?
Second, how long do you hold mashout temp? instuctions did not provide time.
next, after sparging I (in theory) have 5 quarts of wort (probably closer to four considering boil off) it says to add water to achieve normal boil volume. I THINK that means to add enough water to yield 2.5 gallons after the hour long boil. So, maybe bring it up to around 3 maybe 3.5 gallons.
Thanks for your input…so far this site has been awesome
