Posted in thread: Millet Mash - Infusion vs steps on 03-09-2015 at 09:11 PM
For what it's worth, I cannot represent billl's results. I mash out and sparge hot (180
degrees) every time and my runnings never test positive for starch. However, there was one time
I did a batch sp...

The stuff from EC Kraus works fine.
Posted in thread: Millet: the grind on 03-05-2015 at 05:41 PM
I grind at around .63mm, or around .025 inches. Single pass. I used to crush finer and slowly
backed down to this level without seeing any drop of efficiency. This is not quite the closest
gap on a mo...

I did my first, possibly last, all grain effort with terrible results.Used:7lbs pale millet,
1.5 lbs rice hulls, 0.5lb biscuit rice, 0.5 lbs crystal millet. Pretty fine grind, but not
flour.2.25 gal s...
Posted in thread: Would this perhaps work with a millet mash? on 02-25-2015 at 11:14 PM
Completely unnecessary. Decoction mashes with millet malt are a waste of time. If you don't
believe me, try my method and try the decoction method and compare your yields. I used to do it
the hard way...

No cereal mash with the buckwheat, correct. The mash liquefies within 10 minutes, usually
within 5. I aim for around 1.5 qt/lb of strike water. My batch sparges usually fill my MLT
about 75% of its ca...

The gelatinization thing is flat-out wrong. The starches in Grouse millet malt will gelatinize
and convert at normal barley temperatures. I have mashed as low as 148°F with no loss in
efficiency. I **...

I should also note, on the pilot system I wrap the Blichmann button-louver fals bottom in a
nylon mesh bag. Learned the hard way on the first brew day that Chugger pump inlets are easily
clogged by st...

I can confirm that single-infusion works. For best results, use an amylase addition as
directed. At Ghostfish we do a 2-hour mash from between 152°F to 158°F, and I honestly can't
say that I have note...
