I began brewing back in 2005, my wife got tired of hearing how I was going to start brewing my own beer someday. She bought me a starter kit, and I've been hooked ever since! Extract for the first couple of years, then I moved to all grain. I now enter several competitions a year, not only to hopefully win something, but for the feedback. Malty beers are my favorite, Oktoberfest, Alt, and Maibocks top the list. Member of MashRunners, Sherman,TX.

Triple decoction mash: After protein rest, pulled ~6 qts of thick mash, heated to 156 and held for 15 min. Brought to a boil, then added back to main mash, temp stabilized at 147. Held for 20 min, then pulled 3 qts of thick mash, boiled, and added back to main mash, temp stabilized at 156. Held for another 20 min, then pulled 4 qts of thick mash, boiled, and added back to main mash, temp ended up low @ 165, but I was ok with it. Held for 10 min, added Carafa II to mash for color adjustment ...

Made a mistake when measuring out my grains. I was going for 2 row, which I had stored in a tote along with my Superior Pilsen, but had the sticker turned around. Shouldn't be a problem, since it is also a 2 row grain. Mashed for 60 min, then recirculated for 15 before moving wort to boil pot using a march pump.
