Posted in thread: How much Roasted Barley is too much???? on 11-26-2014 at 04:41 PM
My experience lines up with the BYO article. Using +10% roast barely can increase burnt off
flavors if you don't manage the mash pH. This will probably have very roasty flavors. I
wouldn't be worried ...

FWIW. HDPE(#2) can be an FDA approved food safe plastic BUT it has to come from virgin
