Mash-out

From HomeBrewTalk Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Mashing out is the process of raising the mash temperature to 170F. The goal being to halt any enzymatic activity and prevent further conversion of starches to sugars.

Mash-out is often left out of the batch sparging process as a large amount of 170F+ water will be added for the sparging process.
