I'm done. You sir, can have your moment online and bask in your glory. I must be stupid and
should relegate myself to extract.I had always thought this forum to be a friendly and open
exchange of know...

I respect your experience but I also think it's incorrect to say the grain thermal load doesn't

I like grain to water because you can measure the water in the tun.I don't necessarily agree

Shockingly it's still bubbling away in the primary with a soapy white krausen. It's starting to
smell a bit sulphury (not surprising with the yeast strain) but does surprise me that there

So I mashed in at 152 which wasn't too bad- I pre-heated the tun with some water in the bath
