Why Need Step Mashing In Beer Brewing?

Step mashing is a mash program in which the mash temperature is progressively increased through a series of rests. The ubiquity of well-modified malts has virtually eliminated the need to perform a step-mash in most situations. So why should you learn more about the process and science behind step-mashing? Simple, you can produce more variety and sometimes better, more distinctive beers when following a step mash program.

Step-mashing allows brewers to manipulate the mash to get the desired wort, dry or sweet, velvety or lightly astringent. You may also find that your extract efficiency goes up slightly-to-moderately when using a step-mashing regimen. Understanding the science behind step mashing can help all-grain brewers — and even partial mash brewers — decide on an appropriate mash regimen for their beers.


The most interested step mashing process is:

35-45°C (95-113°F) The Acid Rest
