It shouldn't be that big of a deal because the mashing process is pre-boil. After an hour boil,
any bacteria potentially picked up from the tun will be long-cooked. Still, take care to clean
the tun a...

a look at that. You'd want to use a combo of rubber and steel washers on either side of your
hole to make a good seal. Yes, you need to mod your manifold a little, but this ought to give
you a nice ...

I did some more research on it this afternoon, and indeed it seems that alcohol can be

One additional note to add is that I think it really depends on your relationship with the

Interesting! I hadn't heard of 2-Methylisoborneol (MIB) before. From some of the (very brief,
not-at-all-coming-from-a-place-of-experience-so-tell-me-to-shut-up-if-I'm-wrong) reading I've
