Step by Step

Heat 14.7qt (13.9L) of strike water to 165°F (74°C). Mix with grains. The mash should stabilize at about 152°F (67°C). Hold at this temperature for 60 minutes, then raise temperature to mash out at about 168°F (76°C), either by infusion of boiling water, decoction, or other means. Vorlauf until wort runs clear then begin the sparge process. Collect 7.0 gallons (26.5L) and bring to a boil. Total boil time is 75 minutes, adding hops as indicated. After boil is complete, turn off the heat, give a long stir to create a whirlpool, then add the final additions. Steep spices for 15 minutes and remove.

Chill the wort to 65°F (18°C). There should be about 5.5 gallons (21L) of wort in your fermentor. Add yeast and aerate wort. Place your fermentor in a temperature stable place that is in the 68-72°F (20-22°C) range. Bottle or keg after fermentation is complete.
