Decoction
Some people will try to say decoction is a waste of time. But I think that this beer really benefits from a decoction. I canít give you my exact decoction specifics because I donít measure the removed portions. I generally try to take out 1 to 1.5 gallons of stiff mash, heat the portion to a simmer, return the mash and stir in. I like heating 2 or 3 decocted portions for the duration of the mash.
