Posted in thread: General question regards beer competition on 11-24-2015 at 03:41 AM
I haven't had to provide a recipe in the competitions I've entered (although that hasn't been
that many).You may be a little paranoid. Do they plan to print the recipes for the winners?
Maybe. Even so...

6.75 is just as precise as 6.63 :).I might to somewhere in between 6.5 and 6.75, not worrying
about two decimals.

I also like the price of the kit when I clicked on the link. $0.00 But it also says out of

you need ...
Posted in thread: Are rice hulls arsenic on 11-04-2015 at 05:13 PM
I can't imagine much arsenic makes it through the mash. It's not like you're eating the rice
hulls (and even if you were, no one is saying don't eat any rice). You use, what, a half pound
