    Not every homebrewer has stainless steel components but just about any commercial brewery will.
    Most stainless is about 10% nickel and you're going to find stainless steel prep tables, mix
    tanks, plum...

  • Posted in thread: Corn Cobs instead of Rice Hulls? on 11-25-2015 at 08:49 PM
    You shouldn't need to use rice hulls unless the grist bill is high in starchy adjuncts. For a
    typical all malt mash or even one with 10% flaked grains a rice hull addition is probably not

  • Posted in thread: Can I use Dettol for sterilize ??? on 11-16-2015 at 03:56 AM
    No! That is not a product intended for use with food products. Ingredients like pine oil,
    castor oil, and soap have no place on your brewing equipment. BTW you are not sterilizing even
    with the approp...

    All great and fast answers, but quick follow up question on this last one; i had a vague idea
    of reading something similar to this before. Is there also a chance this beer will result
    watery and thin?...

    A-B = Anheuser Busch brewers of American mega-beer Budweiser and now part of InBev. Re the
    ramped infusion, some years ago I asked questions about the mashing during a brewery tour.

    Quick question: i have an electric mash tun/boiler all in one system. The heating element can
    be regulated to a percentage of max. I have been playing with the idea of slowly heating i.e. a
    german whe...

  • Posted in thread: Has anyone done a decoction mash with smoked malt? on 10-23-2015 at 03:42 PM
    What kind of beer and what kind of malt?A German rauchbier is made with 100% German wood-smoked
    malt and a decoction would be appropriate for that brew.

    It's hard to know exactly what the origin of the Burnt Rock malts are but if they're using
    German specialty malts it's not a big leap to assume they're using German base malts too. With
    that in mind I...

    I'm going to ask the same question as JKaranka, "What are you trying to do?" Are you using the
    Munich to bump up the flavor of bland pale malt? If so I'd opt for a more richly flavored base
    malt like ...

    I like to use decoction mashing for these beer styles because I enjoy the subtle enhancements
    to color & flavor it gives to the beer. Bear in mind there are plenty of folks eager to tell
    you this isn'...
