    Autolysis should taste "meaty", and not acidic,right?How much time does it takes autolyze
    yeast?

    First batch done and it came with pronounced acidic taste. I guess my sanitation wasn't done
    properly and I've got some Aceto bacteria or/and Lacto bacteria infection. The taste is
    somewhat tolerable,...

    During my soak/air rest phases I didn't really stir it around to much. Had a bucket with holes
    drilled inside a bottling bucket that I would fill for two hours then leave drained for 8-10
    hrs. Wonderi...

    Second day of sun-drying going fine, day is warm and sunny, the ambient humidity is 39%.I have
    a important question for you malters here. Can I freeze the malt?Will the low temps

    Rotation along with consistent moisture and temperature throughout from soaking to the end of

    Outside temperature is 95 degree Fahrenheit ATM, 4:30pm. Ambient humidity is down to 15%.So
    far, so good . I had to move the drying bed a bit, to follow the sun (the terrace looks north).
    Seeds look q...

    Some of the seeds are over-modified, but overall most of them seem OK. I hauled the whole thing
    upstairs and spread it all on some plastic sheet to dry on the sun. It's 11am here, sun shining
    and no c...

    I could postpone/cancel the trip but I'd rather not to. If the dried barley can survive a
    month.Meanwhile the germination continues. This is the third day since I've put the barley in
    it's germination...

    Humidity is 52% ATM, would that do?That's as low as it gets here.Letting it dry at 90-100F for
    longer time, will that make for sufficient sugar conversion?I don't aim strictly for authentic
