Boiling Maple 80 Shilling wort

Boiling Maple 80 Shilling wort

  1. Mash the grains at 158°F for 60 minutes. Aim for a mash thickness of around 1.9 quarts of water per pound of grain.
  2. At 30 minutes into the mash, collect 2 gallons of wort and boil down to 1 gallon.
  3. Sparge with 170°F water and collect enough wort for a post-boil, fermenter volume of 5 1/2 gallons. This is a 1.5 hour boil, so be sure to account for boil evaporation losses. Include the 1 gallon of kettle-caramelized wort.
  4. Bring the wort to a boil.
  5. Add the 0.5 oz Magnum bittering hops when 60 minutes remain.
  6. Cool the wort to 58°F, aerate, and pitch the yeast.
  7. Ferment for at least 14 days at a consistent low temperature, around 58°F.
  8. Continue fermenting until complete and yeast has dropped.
  9. Rack to a secondary fermenter and cellar at around 38°F for about 2 weeks.
  10. Bottle or keg. Aim for a carbonation level of 2.5 volumes of carbon dioxide.
