Comments: Wheat beer mashing

I'm about to order a keg from Sabco so I can step mash using direct heat (my 7 gal. aluminum turkey fryer just doesn't cut it). I'm also constructing a mash paddle out of hard birch for just such a venture.

My biggest problem with step mashing to this point has been that my 10 gallon tun just won't hold enough water to step mash by adding hotter liquid. And I've yet to convince myself I could safely decoction mash. I'm not sure of the variables nor the method. I'd like to watch a video of someone doing it if one is available.

I'd suggest the book Brewing Lager Beer by Greg Noonan. It'll give you the best advice on decoction mashing.

Let me check for more info.
