-5 lbs of med roast chestnuts, boiled in 5 gallons of H2O for 5 mins in grain bag. Shut off heat and steeped the chestnuts until temp came down to 150.
-Added 2.5 tsp. of amylase and 2.5 tsp. of pectic enzyme.
-Mashed for 24 hours at 140-150 degrees. Kept it on the stove for this. I found that my old electric stove was weak enough that keeping it on the lowest setting kept the temp almost constant. Overnight, I left the burner on the lowest setting and it only got down to 133.
- Removed bag and rinsed with an additional 1 gallon of water, bringing total volume to 5.7 gallons.
- Add fermentable sugars, hops and other ingredients according to schedule.
