I recently ordered the more beer Octoberfest all grain kit, and I am unsure what the optimal temperature to mash the grain is. I cant find it on any of the recipe sheets, or on the site. This is my first all grain recipe, and I am looking for something quite malty, so I am assuming I want to mash high, around 158 and then sparge out at 168/170, but I also dont want to really guess with my first all grain kit!
Also, we are having a bit of a hot streak where I am at right now, so it will be hard to keep this beer cool (around 50), so I am wondering if I can hold off on brewing this for 3 weeks or so since the grain is already milled. It is all sealed in plastic, so I am assuming I can get away with this if I store it a dark, cool place.
