Hey folks, just wanted to let everyone know--we've only got a few hours to go on this and we're
SO CLOSE to our goal! If you can help at all, even $10, it might mean the difference between us

Long time no see, fellow gluten-free homebrewers! Some of you may know me, some of you may not,
it's been a while since I was posting obsessively here. The reason: I've turned pro, and my
brewery is a...

So guys, I've run a series of tests recently, and while I've concluded that I need to improve
my equipment setup to achieve proper temp control (mashing 0.5 gallon batches on the stove or
in the oven ...

I think you've got a few things wrong here, mate.This thread has some misinformation in it. The

peptide it migh...

A hydrometer measures the relative density of a liquid in comparison to water. As brewers, we
use a saccharometer which measures the amount of sugar in solution. Starch is mostly insoluble.
If you had...

Nothing in these trials is meaningless. If unconverted starch pushes up the SG compared to wort
that has achieved close to full conversion, then that tells me something important, namely that

If no one knows how conversion amount affects hydrometer readings, my next test will be just
straight gelatinize some malt in solution at temperature above saccharification, collect the
starchy wort, ...
