Thank you for the feedback guys.I brew small batches (~5gal) so a motorised, sheaved mill

the ones using sheaves and large electric motors have the motors uncovered and I was wondering

If you're doing a recirculating mash, keep in mind there will also be starch conversion
happening in the boiler as well so if you set the boiler to 72F so the M/T is 70F, one could

of the bottles in a first run and then go back and top up the bottles in a second run in the
same order. I...

That Montrachet yeast might be causing some over attenuation in the bottles. ...So would a good
