Subject: Mash Water
Date: 1992-04-01 15:32:35 GMT
I'm brewing my first all grain recipe in a few weeks. We have about 11 pounds of grain (9 of those are pale ale). We are also mashing on an electric stove. One of the books I have suggests that you use at least 2 quarts of water per pound of grist on an electric stove. That comes out to 11*0.5 = 5.5 gallons of water. I usually try to have 7 gallons of wort at the start of the boil (which seems to come out to 5 gallons of beer after boiling and settling, etc.)
My question is will 1.5 gallons of sparge water be enough. I'm used to using something like 3-4 gallons with much less grain.
Any help would be appreciated.
