Here is the rest of my plan. I have no idea of efficiency. This is a scottish ale (will do MLPA after this one). These water quantities are just guesses. I'll be mashing in one of the electric rigs (think generic grainfather). It does have a recirculation pump. Forgot to add, i will use my refractometer for readings. However it appears my hydrometer is missing ....
Target is a 5 gallon batch
Bring 5.5 gallons of water up to 155º
Add grain slowly while stirring to prevent clumps(6lbs 10 oz total)
Mash @ 153º for one hour
Sparge with 1.5 gallons
Remove grain, bring to a rolling boil
Add 1 oz Kent hops for 60 minutes
Drop chiller in the last 5 minutes of the boil
Chill as low as possible (target 65º)
Fill primary with wort -give it a few shakes to aerate
Add yeast (Propper starter that will be started 24 hours earlier with the shaken not stirred method--mix propper starter, 16 oz distilled water, yeast, cover with tin foil)
any concerns there?
