This says the temperature for fungal alpha-amylase tops out at 55C! Quite a difference from
grain alpha-amylase. I am quite sure the powder you get from homebrew suppliers is of fungal
origin. might ...

generating CO2 a mere 45 minutes after being dust. All the research indicates that it doesn't
work that way. And...

That guy could have at least credited Andrew Lavery, given that his mash schedule is almost
word-for-word from Andrew's 2006 PDF's with the units changed to imperial. Sure, they are
Posted in thread: GF grain malting and mashing help on 06-19-2012 at 01:48 PM
O'Briens in Australia brews with grain (as far as I know). I've never had any of their beers
