  • Posted in thread: Does anyone follow some temp schedule during prim ferm? on 09-15-2014 at 07:50 AM
    Since I usually have 3 or 4 beers fermenting at the same time (2 gal buckets) I leave the

    For some reason specialty grain are "steeped" biab is mashing. Same- same. The major difference
    is that without LME or DME you need salt and yeast nutrient. They are both in the extract.
