Batch Sparge Sticky?

Postby camelfilter » Mon Jun 25, 2007 4:46 pm

Is there a STICKY of how to properly enter into BeerTools a batch-sparge mash schedule? with as popular as this technique is, you'd think it would be a its own topic,...or at least a STICKY!

I'm sure there's been several posts that have covered it,...could someone point me to the best/better ones? Thanks!

Batch Sparge Setup

This is a good and seemingly up-to-date post on setting up a Batch Sparge Schedule. There's some helpful screenshots on the second page. Basically you can start with a 2-Step Infusion Preset, delete any steps you don't need (e.g., the Protein Rest, if you don't do one). You'll want to add a second sparge step to the Separation Step to account for collecting your First Runnings and doing you sparge.

If you want to get accurate predictions for strike water, you'll also want to create and callibrate your Mash Tun.

It's also important to set up your MashIn step by correctly choosing your Mash Vessel and Heating Vessel so that the calculation is made for a cooler mash tun or directly fired mash tun, as appropriate.
