Mashing - Tuns and Accessories


Brewing beer requires a lot of steps before achieving the final product. An essential step in all-grain brewing is mashing. Mashing refers to the hot water steeping process. It is necessary not only to hydrate the grains but also to activate the malt enzymes so that the grain starches convert to fermentable sugars. Without the process of mashing, the grain bills will not produce enough sugar for the liquid wort to ferment.

There are two methods of mashing, and these include (1) infusion and (2) decoction. While the former involves heating the grains in one vessel, the latter consists of boiling a proportion of grains then returning them to the mash. You can perform this task more than once, raising the temperature incrementally each time you complete this step. You can do infusion mashes in an ordinary brew kettle. An insulated brewing container (called a mash tun) with a false bottom is where to do a decoction mash. (more info below)

The mash tun is a dedicated piece of equipment used in the decoction process. This specialized vessel comes with a thermometer to help maintain the desired temperature. It may also come with a mash rake to stir the liquid, thus preventing the bottom from scorching.

While investing in a mash tun may seem necessary, you can improvise by turning an ordinary brewing pot into one. We have a wide range of accessories that you can use for customizing a brew pot. Our selections of items include false bottoms, bazooka kits, ball valves, trub busters and strainers.

Here at Ontario Beer Kegs, we also have a wide variety of dedicated mash tuns. We carry different brands like Brewtech and Mash King.

We make sure that you have everything that you need so that you can mash successfully.
