    I don't know if it's better yet - but I goosed the malt bill slightly on my pico pale - subbed
    5% Munich for half the crystal, and subbed 5% wheat for 5% of the base malt. Kept the hops the
    same but w...

    I would not use Lacto for a sour mash in the Zymatic. There are just too many areas that you
    cannot clean well enough and you'd hate to contaminate your new shiny wort maker. I'm planning
    on making qu...

    I've been wondering about the berlinerweis myself - but will just pitch lacto and Sach yeast
    after the boil.

    The best advantage to me of few ting in the keg is the built in sanitation. If you started with
    a clean and sanitized keg, the boil recirculating in the keg keeps it sterile (in theory
    anyway). I know...

    Interesting. Which Gordon Strong book has his water recommendations? the new one - Modern
    Homebrew recipes - it list his water treatment for each of over 100 recipes. Of course, he
    brews on a three t...

    Thanks for the detailed answer. I know about salts and the impact on mash pH, but I didn't
    quite understand why adding them at one time v. another prior to the chilling phase would make
    any difference...

    Sorry for the stupid question - but what's the difference between adding salts at the start
    (mash) compared with in he boil? Do you mean you really add salts only once the boil is going?
    Since the sal...

    I see - so it's a hybrid method. I used to no-chill using a cube - helpful in the winter when I
    didn't really want to run a ton of water out onto my driveway in the MN freeze. I like the
    method in gen...

    Also I wanted to brew before the fermentation was finished to my liking on my first brew (6
    days). But, I figured it was pretty close - so I jumped the brew from my "brew keg" to a second
    holding keg ...

    When folks just do a "no-chill" style cooling, do you just end brew session when the machine
    pauses after the boil?Yesterday I just selected end brew, and I ran an additional drain program
    to be sure ...
