    I think the mash schedule is fine, not sure how much the protease rest at 122 helps though. I
    would guess the problem is elsewhere, did you really have 15 lbs of grain total? Could you have
    forgotten ...

    Man that is strange - does it have lactose in it? The amylase should break down most of the
    remaining starches.If stirring doesn't help - I'd avoid adding DME, if you think it needs more
    alcohol and t...

    You are probably fine, precipitated protein (aka break) is supposed to fall out and settle.

    this recipe, wh...

    Fyi - barley and wheat used for malting is not supposed to be desiccated with roundup. The
    amount of Glyphosate that remains on cereal grain hasn't been shown to have detrimental health
    effects, but i...

    I think that your cherry flavor is low for two reasons.1. Using Crystal instead of Flaked
    rice/corn. The crystal adds stronger flavors that reduce your perception of the fruit.2. Not
    enough cherry. 3l...

    6 ft of line is short in general not sure about nitro. For my standard setup I need 20 ft at 12
    psi or I get loads of foam.Maybe try increasing the line length and see how much it improves.
