Water Adjustments (Optional):
Use low-mineral water; ensure at least 50ppm calcium to convert the mash correctly.
- Mash In - Do your normal mash regime (say 3 Litres of Mash Water to 1Kg of Grain), mashing at around 64C for at least 60 mins. Allow for a couple of extra litres if you have a false bottom in your mash tun. Approx. 17 Litres for Mash.
- Mash off - Infuse mash with near boiling water while stirring or with recirculating mash system raise temp to mash out at 76C for 10 minutes.
- Sparge slowly - once again the brewer should do normal sparge regime in terms of water (around 14 litres) at around 77C added to hit pre-boil volumes of 26 Litres and post boil into fermenter volumes of 23 Litres.
- First wort hop addition - add 25 gm Saaz CZ Hops - Alpha: 3.8% – for 12 IBU.
- Boil - vigorous boil for 90 mins, with second hop additions at 15 minutes and the final third hop additions at 5 mins from end of boil.
- 10 minutes from end of boil: Optional here to add yeast nutrient and a tab of Deltafloc or a tsp of Irish Moss (not included in kit)
- Cool the wort and transfer to the fermenter pitching Yeast and adding the Mangrove Jacks | Dry Glucoamylase Enzyme | 3g sachet at the same time.
- Ferment at 11°C until the beer attenuates fully. With healthy yeast, fermentation should be complete within 2 weeks, but do not rush it. As you approach the final few degrees of specific gravity raise the fermentation temperature to 15°C for a for a few days to ensure that yeast reabsorbs diacetyl, removing the butter-like flavor from the beer.
- Rack to a keg and force carbonate or rack to a bottling bucket, add priming sugar, and bottle. Target a carbonation level of 2.5 to 3 volumes.
- Be spot-on with your sanitation, yeast health, and temperature control. This beer will not provide you any room to hide.
