    If anyone here is seriously considering opening a production brewery or brewpub without having
    ever worked in the industry, I think you're absolutely nuts (and I mean that in the nicest way
    possible)....

  • Posted in thread: Mash temps for lambic? on 08-25-2012 at 11:54 PM
    If you have the time, patience, and inclination, I suggest doing a traditional turbid mash
    (good write-ups on the process here and here. If you want to stick with single-infusion, mash
    high. Really hi...

    everything increased ~15%.Exactly what I was thinking.

    clarity problems ;)I was thinking that if you can't lauter your wort, then your glass is going
    to be empty, a...

    1 lb Rice Husks (to help with the clarity)How do rice hulls affect the clarity of the finished
    product?
