Perform a single-step infusion mash at 147°F. Use a thinner mash (approximately 3.75 gallons) to avoid over sparging and adjust the sparge water accordingly. Minimal splashing, avoid mash agitation.
Boil for 60 minutes, following the hops schedule.
Chill the wort to 65°F and pitch the yeast. Place in a 60°F fermentation chamber for 7 days.
After 7 days rack the beer into secondary, add the frozen peaches and age at 45-50°F for 21 days. After 21 days remove the peaches, rack the beer and keg or bottle. If bottling, add priming sugar accordingly.
