StrangeBrew Elsinore FAQ: utilizing mash profiles

What are mash profiles and how do you utilize them in StrangeBrew Elsinore?

Mash profiles prescribe the temperature of your mash during the brewing process. In many cases, mashes have multiple temperature steps in order to activate and deactivate key enzymes. The most basic mash is a single temperature for the entire duration of the mashing process. A simple modification of this that can potentially raise mash efficiency is the use of a mashout step in which the temperature is raised at the end of the mashing procedure to stop enzyme activity and increase mash fluidity. Additional mash steps may be used when a grain bill consists of under-modified malts or in the pursuit of wort with very high fermentability.
