Water to Mash Ratio

Started this discussion. Last reply by Tonz Jul 26, 2012. 18 Replies

I’m doing my 1st Extract / mini mash brew today  : - )  Can anyone advise how much water I use for my mash? My grains fill a 2.5 – 3.0 litre pot, so am I right in assuming I use 5 – 6 litres of water? My actual mash pot holds 8 litres.Also with the grains making up only 33.3% of the fermentables is it still worthwhile sparging before I do the boil?Continue

Export Gold Recipe ?

HI All, Has anyone got a recipe for DB's "Export Gold" ? I wanta make it via the kit method plus add a bit more malt for flavour and bittering and aromatic hops. Any su I also wanta up the alcohol to around 5-6 % I have previously used a Black Rock Lager kit before with #20 beer enhancer along with saflager S-23 yeast and a super alpha finishing hop bag. My Alcohol % was 3.5 - 4%.  Can anyone give me improvements on this to achieve the above.Cheers for any adviceTonz.Continue

Hey Tonz, not sure I did anything worthwhile.
I think I did something more like the Hoprocker recope that was doing the rounds at the time - and resurfaces every now and then.

If its any help I think Steiny is hopped with green bullet and if I recall Steiny Pure uses some nelson sauvin either would require a very light base malt and carefull use of hops combined with a very clean ferment with a well managed lager yeast

Cheers Chris

I reckon the Pils, a little caramalt and maybe some carapils.
Pacific Jade and Sauvin sound good,
I've got no idea on yeast, maybe someone else can chime in here?
