Malt Bill
96% Your favourite base malt

4% Your favourite light caramel malt

If you want to build a slightly more creamy mouth feel, sub 5% raw wheat for 5% of your base. This is something we have played with in the evolution of Ace

Mill to desired consistency (according to your kit) 

Mash at 66C until full conversion (Iodine test)

Mashout to 76 (or sparge at 76) DON'T allow this to get any warmer than 76.

If you adjust your mash and sparge water a ratio of 2:1 (Cl:SO4) is desired. We use CaCl and CaSo4. 

Boil to preffered length (our standard is 60 minutes, very vigorously) As always take precautions to ensure your own safety.
