    There should be plenty of enzymes in the barley mash without adding the amylase. I never boiled
    the chestnuts and just treated them like a regular all grain mash (with the extended mash time)
    and had ...

    Good question on the mash. Always wondered it myself, but when it came to brew day, I just did
    what was told. On another note, my chestnut lager turned out great! Very clear and tasty.

    but I am sur...

    OPM,Sounds promising! I've found that in order to get my gravity up there, I add honey. For a
    ten gallon batch (we knucklehead Americans are still using the imperial system, so don't ask me
    to convert...

    Nope. I've had great success heating them to 150 the night before brew day and cranking it back

    usually fall...

    10 more gallons chestnut ipa in the fermenter. Still amazed at these chestnuts.

    Just poured a Chestnut ipa myself and switched to a new keg already. Lee. Expect a call
    tomorrow or Tuesday. I'm ready to brew again. I meant to call a few weeks ago but got busy
    trying to keep all th...
