My experience with Windsor was slightly different than many report. I knew esters could be an
issue, and tried to keep the fermentation below 65 for the first few days. I didn't notice a

I don't have a mill, but . . . .Why not do what is often done with cast meat grinders and store

If it were me, I'd at least get it up to a mash out (if not right to a boil) before letting it

drier end ...

conditioning phase. During the conditioning phase, diacetyl is consumed by yeast and
