of use), I ...
Posted in thread: Fermentation Temperature... how long? on 01-14-2011 at 10:34 PM
IMO, don't cold crash for at least a couple (2-3 weeks) in primary at fermentation

Try letting them stand in hot wort for 20-30 minutes like the breweries do in the whirlpool.
There is some info on this on this forum, more on the Northern Brewer and Brewing Network
forums, and also ...

I have been meaning to start watching/listening to some podcast/shows.Why would pro mash give
the srm at 25.4 for those grains? If I was just following promash calculations it should have
