    I can only see one way out, and it's fairly messy. From what I've read in this thread and
    others, barring some huge change in Alabama politics there's a path to success, if homebrewers
    have the stomac...

    Homemade grant (a grant is used between the lauter tun and ketter so the pump isn't sucking the

    Brewing this recipe soon. Did you toast your flaked oats? I toasted some last night for the

    hear. This is...
