  • Posted in thread: Cold Steep Grains - Crazy Efficiency? on 06-06-2014 at 09:02 PM
    After internal debate, I decided to dump the cold steeped dark grain extract into the kettle at

    used is from old bed frames - total expense of $3 and asa bonusi got to learn how to stick

    adjustable in heig...
