i mashed the buckwheat, flaked corn, and minute rice with amylase and about 1/3lb of rice hulls in a steeping bag for a few hours at 155. once conversion was completed, i removed the bag and put it in a second pot with 175 degree water and left it there for about 15 mins. i squeezed the bag and combined both pots, and set off to boil. added extract and hops.

cooled to mid-50s and pitched a 85% packet of SAFLAGER S-23 (dry). reserved ~.5gal of wort in a separate sanitized container and refrigerated.

kept at about 53deg for 17 days until i did a D-rest (1.020) for 3 days at 68deg. at the start of the D-rest, i added the rest of the yeast (slurry this time) to the reserved vessel, let fermentation build up for 3 days, then added this to the original wort and stored at about 50.

i just racked this after a week and i plan on holding this around 45-50 this for another month at least. so far, so good. i look forward to another sample soon.
