Anyone have experience with REITERATED MASHING? Been doing some research and was considering doing it for an Imperial Stout I’m making for next years Xmas gifts for friends.
I’m using 22.25 lbs of grains and was going to split the grains in half. Mash as usual with the first mash and then add 150DF water until I reach 1 gal over my pre boil vol. Run that volume into a kettle.
Mash in with the second half of the grains into that kettle and heat until I reach my mash temp; then hold for an hour. Then dump that back into my mash tun and recirculate and vorlof back into (clean) boil kettle.
Does that sound about right?
Is there still a need to lower my efficiency when using this mash technique being that I’m not actually using all 22 lbs in a single mash tun?
Or… lower my grain bill and fit it into one mash tun. Add DME as needed later in the boil to reach my desired gravity…AKA CHEATING
Any advise will help.
