Mash Guidelines:
3 qt Beta Glucan Rest Temperature 110 F 20 min
-- Protein Rest Temperature 125 F 25 min
-- Starch Conversion Rest Temperature 160 F 30 min
Maintain target rest temps, use a cooler or insulation around kettle if it helps. This step is important with GF grains. Agitate lightly. Calc strike temps/volumes as needed.

Increase kettle volume to 4 gallons prior to boil.

Add Fermentable extracts before boil and stir to help prevent scorching. Continue stirring 3 min after boil starts.

Important to use Yeast Nutrients or DAP! GF brewing contains fewer FAN (Free Amino Nitrogen)

Follow hop and adjunct schedule:
0.4 oz Chinook Pellet 12 Boil 60 min
0.3 oz Mount Hood Pellet 5 Boil 60 min
0.5 oz Cascade Pellet 7 Boil 15 min
0.5 oz Mount Hood Pellet 5 Boil 15 min
0.5 oz Cascade Pellet 7 Boil 7 min
0.5 oz Mount Hood Pellet 5 HopStand at 210 °F for 30 min
1 oz Mount Hood Pellet 5 Dry Hop 7 days

Hop stand for the entire 30 minutes after flame-out. Needed for hop forward nose.

Add distilled water to meet 5.5G primary volume.

Starter for yeast should be 2 cups of 75F boiled or distilled water, 30 minutes before pitching.

Don't forget to pitch the ClarityFerm just before yeast!

Pitch yeast when wort has been transferred to primary and is approx 72F.

Secondary after 10 days, dry hop.
Bottle/Keg after secondary, condition 6 days then cold break.
