Notes
-----
Brewer's notes: This beer may also be dry hopped post fermentation with 1/2
ounce each of Cascade and Centennial hops for 5-8 days at room temperature
.
It's bigger than most American Ambers but has complex malt character with supporting hops.

Notes
-----

The large amounts of water ratio to grain is because this is a decoction mash.



Decoction method:



After 15 to 20 minute rest at 99F, pull a decoction and heat to 150 °F (66 °C) and let this rest for 15 - 20 minutes.

Next, heat the decotction to boiling and boil for 15 minutes stirring constantly so not to scorch grains. **Add a pinch of calcium — either gypsum or calcium chloride — to the boiled decoction, to help the boiled mash achieve a desirably low pH.



After the first decoction is boiled, it is returned to the main mash, establishing a mash temperature around 125 °F (52 °C). (These days, we’d describe this rest as activating beta-glucanase. Older sources would likely call it a protein rest. With well modified malt, you may choose to proceed directly to the next decoction.) After a variable amount of time — from roughly 15–30 minutes — a second decoction is pulled and boiled. Like the first decoction, this should be the thickest one-third of the mash. This decoction is boiled for 15–30 minutes and returned to the mash.




Once the second decoction is returned, the mash temperature should settle to around 149 °F (65 °C). Traditionally, the mash was allowed to rest for about an hour at this point. At this temperature, of course, starch is being converted into maltose and other sugars. If you are using a modern, well-modified malt, you can shorten this rest to 30 minutes (or shorter, if you
confirm conversion with an iodine test).



After your conversion rest, a final decoction is pulled, boiled for 15–30 minutes and returned to the main mash for a mash out temperature around 170 °F (77 °C). A mash-out makes lautering easier — and lautering would likely have been more variable with historical malts. These days, we also know it brings most enzyme activity to a halt, “fixing” your carbohydrate profile. Now, what may be six hours later, you are ready to begin re-circulation and lautering.

Notes
-----

You want a fairly soft water so use Calcium Chloride.

If you shut the mash off at 140F it should rise to 145F naturally. You don't have to mash out beyond the 158F but feel free.

The key is making a true light beer, not a small beer. Feel free to use a different hop for bittering and flaked maize works, too.
Maize = Miller Lite
Rice = Coors Light
