It is actually sad when you have the skills that you are often tasked to translate
"engineerese" into EnglishMy wife's an engineer. Sometimes I think she married me because she

If you're doing BIAB you can skip the rice hulls. Those are used to prevent the grain from
clogging up your manifold. Since you don't have one, you don't need the rice hulls.75 minutes
sounds like an ...

Definitely make a starter, but I think you should be fine. Airplane holds tend to be unheated,

He hasn't said anything to me directly, but through my supervisor, I know he keeps an eye on

considering you'll be ...

I've only made a starter three times, and twice I've pitched the stir bar with the yeast.I am

I play guitar and piano well enough to amuse myself, and loud enough to annoy those around me.
I think we've got seven guitars, acoustic and electric pianos, a violin and I just picked up a
