I'm going to use my 5# of Pilsen DME for starters. I hope to start boiling down and canning leftover runnings from the mash tun in the future though.

Anybody have experience with this or think of a reason not to do it? I do all-grain and I plan to collect wort to reach my preboil volume as usual and then collect the rest of the wort (until the runnings are 1.010) and boil that down to 1.040 or a little under. Then I want to can the wort in mason jars and store them in the cellar and just grab them whenever I'm ready to do a starter.

I hate throwing out grain when I know there is still some usable sugar in there and then having to pay for DME.

Maybe the diluted wort from the end of the runnings won't have enough nutrients for a healthy starter?

I am not able to see the country malt link above to review the grains and prices. I click the link and type the password in and get an error page. Anyone else having this issue?

Yes,

I believe they made that password invalid. Luckily I saved the pdf. I have added a link to view the pricing on the order sheet document. Just copy the link in cell D6

or Click Here!

Out of curiosity, what happens if a split is still open when we go to finalize the order?

Trent your not being a pain. I've added and subtracted from my order.

Fred. If a split is open but the count is 84 the split wouldn't be ordered. When a .5 split completes to 1 it adds to the total sacks

Got my order in earlier this evening. Had to restrain myself, I don't think SWMBO would react well to the purchase of $200 of grain. Maybe next time.

Anyway I'm in for:
1 bag Canadian Malt 2-row
1 bag Thomas Fawcett Marris Otter

Can't wait to brew with this!

Anyone interested in a bottle cap split???

We could do plain caps or oxygen absorbing. 10,000 total that I figured we could purchase in increments of 1,000.

PLAIN CAPS: $11.50 + $0.50 shipping /per 1,000
OXY ABSORB: $18.50 + $0..50 shipping /per 1,000

If there is interest let me know and I'll add it. I would take a 1k split myself!
Keep in mind that we are not going to count 10k caps to make sure you get the exact amount. We can weigh all the caps and do the math to get it real close.

DMase - I just ordered a digital postal scale because I need one for weighing my own grain when it comes time. I'll bring it to the pick up location because I think it will be easier to dump grain in a plastic tote to weigh it out then put it in the hanging scale.

PJM, Fred, KPR, Rloc...don't forget zip locks or smaller containers for the DME when it comes time for pick up.

Do you have a preference of which type. I've only used the plain and have heard mixed feedback on the oxy absorbing caps as to whether they work or not
