  • Posted in thread: Why doesn't mash heating denature amylase enzymes ? on 03-03-2015 at 03:01 AM
    Yes, the enzymes are contained in the wort after the dough in. This is one of the reasons that
    the thick part of the mash is the part that is decocted. Most of the enzymes have been removed
    from that ...

    All the brewing sources mention that enzymes are easily deactivated or denatured by
    temperatures much outside their range. Ie 131 to 150F. ( So what happens when one adds heat to
    a mash via a flame u...

    I think the OP stated that her shed didn't require a permit, due to its size.But yes, good
    point in general. If a permit is needed, it's better to have it than risk getting ratted out
    later by a nosy ...

    NC regulations will require the sink to be hooked up to a permitted wastewater system. The shed
    will also require a building permit since there will be electricity in it. Of course what the
    county doe...

    I brew on my back porch or in my detached garage with no heat, water or sewer and barely any
    electricity including a recent session at 5 f. I will not get into the details how (unless you
    care) but th...

    MaxStout is from Minn.Nice looking brew shack! It's nice to have dedicated space for any hobby.
    I take it you'll just run a garden hose out there for water?I built a 10 x 20 shed for
    woodworking about...

    Forgive my ignorance, I don't understand building a brew shed in a place like Minneapolis.
    Brewing involves liquids, so are you going to heat the shed all winter so they don't freeze ?
    Are you going t...

    I don't know what to say about insulating the CFHX. I wouldn't bother right now. Before I did
    anything, I'd test your system with the plate chiller and see how you like it.I don't
    understand why those...

    It will work, its just not going to be very fast. Look at it this way. Once the temp on the HLT
    water drops a bit the HLT heating element is going to kick in. At that point what you basically
    have is ...

    The difference between using a counterflow heat exchanger to chill boiling wort and using one
    to do step mash heating is the delta T of the water to mash. When you chill wort, the incoming
    wort is 212...
