It’s Monday morning, which means it is time for some personal improvement. How about you, beer enthusiast? We can see you need motivation. A big personal step for a beer enthusiast dreaming of going pro one day is moving from extract homebrewing to all-grain brewing. With only one to two hours longer in the brewing process, the all-grain experience offers a much wider range of ingredients, better control over the brewing process and satisfaction of getting closer to the brewing process. You will be using new equipment — the big boil pot, outdoor propane burner, immersion chiller — and new techniques — mashing, sparging and prayer. You get to learn the magic of making wort, and the video above should help. It’ll take you straight into the beer-making heart of all-grain brewing.
In this video, the all-grain brewing method is called single-step infusion mash. That basically means you’re going to hold the mash at one temperature the entire time to convert the starches into sugars. There are more advanced mashing schedules out there where you hold the mash at different temperatures for different amounts of time, but you can learn those after mastering the single-step infusion mash approach.
