All Grain Mash Instructions: 

Mash with a water to grain ratio of about 1.25qt per pound at a target Mash rest temp of 152 for 30-60 minutes (stirring your mash occasionally can help with your efficiency). Sparge with enough water to collect about 6.5 gallons into your kettle.

 

Useful All-Grain Equations 

Mash Water Volume: 1.25-1.50 qt of water per lb of grain (adjust based on equipment)

Mash Strike Water Temp: 10-12 degrees fahrenheit above your target mash temp.

Sparge Water: 1 to 1.25 x your mash water volume (calculated above). 

Results vary. Every brewhouse is unique. Take notes, and adjust. You got this!
