Yeah,def don't want them stems & seeds. Cleaned the grain mill to crush 4lbs of grains for the Berlin Wheat freeby kit. Bottled the first one yesterday.
But gunna cut the Haulertauer flavor addition from 30 to 20 minutes. Trulemon crystal in the priming solution. I'm hoping for a smooth lemon spice kinda thing.
Mashed & sparged grains for the 2nd Berlin wheat. gotta wait for son to make Breakfast before going to work to start the boil. Darn mash temp started at 152F,then while wrapped up for an hour went up to 156F,1 degree higher than recipe calls for. not bad I guess. Gunna dry grains for later use. They kinda smell like banana bread.
Well,grains have been in a 200F oven for nearly an hour,pitched WY3056 on another OG1.050 wort 4 minutes ago. Brewday done,it's miller time!...better make that homebrew time! Nice to be done about 20 to three. Twice in a row I got the same OG on the same kit. Those spent grains ground into flour are gunna be great in pancakes.
Drove to my local Stone Brewery location, the South Park Company Store, and filled up a couple growlers of their new release, RUINTEN. I also bought 3 bottles of it, there wasn't a limit on growler fills/bottles! I can't wait to pop some open...
