Yes -- but (IMHO) a plate chiller is just complicating the Pico process. Adding time to your
brew day for cleanup, sanitation, etc. The great thing about the Pico is that it's
self-contained -- and ca...

Bobbytuck, have you been using the Single Step Infusion mash or the High Efficiency Mash?
Notice a difference? My first couple of brews I used single infusion, but then tried the high

needs to go into cold water for half an hour or so, then get heated to 150 (until it's clear)

I'd say that this technique is based on the belief that the main reason that lagers are
traditionally lagered for so long is to clear them. But clearing the beer on a homebrew scale

Unfortunately, I don't think you'll get much aroma at all from the Hallertau. I would consider
