Posted in thread: adding dark grains at vorlauf on 01-22-2013 at 02:45 PM
So I assume the roasted malts will still have an affect on the pH. The grain will acidify the
steeping water or the mash water if it is added at dough in or end of the mash during the
vorlauf. Would w...

I worry about sanitizing the rubber band enough with sanitizer. Seems to me they are a bit
porous to sit right in your beer as your siphoning beer around/by it. Do you boil it first?

if no one has done this by then. It can't be that hard. I wonder what the minimum amount of
