After 19 brews with my electric brewery, I will do my first step mash. Will step mash at 144F for 60 minutes, raise temp to 158F for 15 minutes and will mashout at 168F.

Any input, suggestions, etc?

Thanks.

It's very simple: After the 60 min mash at 144F, simply press and hold the "UP" button on the HLT until you reach 158F. That's it.

You're already doing a step if you're mashing out at 168F, so an extra step (or 2 or 3) is no different.

Good luck!

I understand. I realize I should have asked for anything out of the ordinary.

Nope. It's just soaking at different temperatures. No different really than any other temperature.

Now what temperatures to use, what steps to use, and so forth is of course a completely different question as there are a ton of temp ranges that all do different things and different grains may also react differently.

Check out my recipes for some ideas as to what I do for different styles/recipes and why: https://shop.theelectricbrewery.com/pages/recipes
