I will soon need to buy some more equipment, but I want to think it a little bit what I really need to buy and in the meantime I will try some workaround.
I was thinking of brewing mash/extract recipes, so my idea was (for a 1.050OG beer, 10l volume):
- Mash at a "normal" OG around 1.050s
- Boil th wort for 45 minutes (5l of wort more or less)
- Add the malt extract for the last 15 minutes (to achieve almost double gravity, let's say 1.100)
- Dilute high gravity wort with 5 more liters to get final volume of 10 litres.
Bitterness extraction could be different (but I will assume effect is negligible).
My real question is, will it be a bad idea to mix malt extract toward the end of the boil? Will I get bad flavors from shortly boiled extract?
Any other possible issue, or maybe a better method for that?
