Hello,
I have been wondering why many resources state that the strike temperature is critical. When in step mashing the grain can be put in at room temperature and raised through many different temperatures. I am aware that step mashing is used on under/non modified grains but is there any problem with putting modified malted grains in at room temperature and then raising to 68 deg for a 1 step mash. What would be the down sides if I did this?

Thanks
Colin
