I think they call one 'pale ALE malt', one just 2-row. They also have a pilsner malt, also pale 2-row.

I have been using a one week primary and a three week secondary but have not had any luck with yeast clearing. I think that I will go to the three week primary and see if I get a little cleaner beer. I also ferment for about the first 48 hours at 68F and then drop to 65F or a little less.
This is the day after kegging, and only 2 weeks in primary... secondary, meh

I pitched at 64 an let it rip for about 4 days there, then let the temp rise to 68 for a D-rest over 4 days, crashed to about 45 for the last week, and kegged (shake method). It's truly delicious

Looks nice! Lots clearer than mine gets. Are you using anything other than Irish Moss? I for sure will try the D-rest. Put my yeast in the starter last night and will brew tomorrow!
