I’m late posting about this, but waaaay back on June 28th, I brewed Grove Street Summer Wheat. I finally got around to bottling it last Sunday, July 26th. Oops. It was my first foray into stovetop partial-mash brewing, which went surprisingly well.
This past Monday, 7/27, I tried it again, making Grove Street Big IPA, which I expect to be bottling in about another week and a half.
Both recipes used a mash of 4lbs grain, and I calculated the volume and temperature for the strike and sparge water with the very handy SpargePal app on my iPod. The whole procedure required the use of all four pots in my 2/3/4/5-gallon stockpot set, and I’m sure that with a better sparging method I could get much clearer wort, but overall I’m very happy with the results so far (but ask me again once I’ve tried one of the beers!).
