Posted in thread: Partial Mash Advice Needed on 04-25-2012 at 02:56 PM
Well, first if you are doing a partial mash (usually is only crystal malts) you don't need to
do a mashout. Second, just keep the pot on the stove and manage the heat the best you can. If
it gets too ...

Sorry for not being more clear . . .What I meant was that the gelatin is going to cling to a

This looks pretty good. I've never used Citra for bittering, so I can't speak to the bittering
