    I usually try not to grind it to a flour but sometimes (especially if you used groats) it just
    isnt possible to keep it from happening. I give it a nice Beta-glucan rest at around 40 C for
    25 mins wit...

    it's still a bit fresh with a strong buckwheat smell and taste but it turned out nice. I cold
    crashed it at 35 F for 4 days and then raised it up to 40 F for about 2 more and it ended with
    a nice swee...

    I am teaming with jealousy and envy. Congratulations!

    So I tweaked the pale ale recipe I used from my last post by adding more pale malt and using
    buckwheat. The buckwheat i used as specialty malts because i have noted it makes nice crystal

    Was this a 5-gallon batch? If so, your grain bill was waaaay too small. I use that much grain
    for a 3-gallon batch. Were you going off of Andrew Lavery's recipe? I'd recommend using
    Brewtoad or Beersm...

    Mash thick with millet. Around 1.25 qt/lb. It needs it for the lower enzyme activity. I saw a
    drop in efficiency when I went thinner. Add a mash out step to help lautering. A bag is great.

    maybe I am mashing too thick..I'll try a few things and report back after my next couple
    batches show improvements and I'll see if I can get the same efficiency without grinding to a

    This is a five gallon batch and I have always had issues with lautering/sparging. I usually
    ground my grain into a flour for better efficiency and with a grain like millet there isn't
    much choice but ...

    I recently tried my hand at brewing a gluten free pale ale around the beginning of the month
    and it went decently. I brewed this with malted millet only, I just hope it tastes as good as
    it smells. I ...
