"Pilsner malt is a 6-row variety (the number of rows of kernels) and 6-row has a lot more SMS, the precursor to DMS than 2-row malts."

Nah..

Weyermans, Best, Dingemans, Pilsner malt are 2 row.

Pilsner malt is less kilned which is why it has more SMS.

I'd say if you know you'll get more DMS with pilsner malt in the winter, just avoid pilsner malt in the winter. That seems like a much cheaper, and logical, solution than getting a new burner or doing anything drastic.

That was kind of the point of my post. I have a great burner. Cold weather and the tank freezing up are what killed me.

See, learn something new everyday! I had thought I read that all pilsner malt was made from 6-row barley.

Set your propane tank in a tub of warm water and it won't freeze up on you.
