Well - We did it.

We heated up the BMC to about 175F then let it cool before mashing in with it. No joking or sarcasm, it smelled like piss.

The pH was about 4.2-4.4 or so after doughing with 17lbs of pilsner the pH was about 5.2!

It smellled like somebody pissed in the mash!! It had a stale beer, piss, and sweet malto-meal aroma for about 90 minutes.

We then dumped another 50 cans or so (~5 gallons) of BMC got that up to 175F. Numb to the smell and due to half a mini-keg of Heine in me.

Lautered & Sparged. We acheived 78% mash efficiency.


Then we boiled it for 90 minutes so we would cook-off all traces of DMS.

We pitched about 5 packs Saflager-23. It had a slow start but is cranking away now.

I got a lot pictures. I'll post them in the next few days.
