  • Posted in thread: My idea for a mash tun-please dont laugh on 01-06-2013 at 03:34 PM
    Isulate the sink with a box of 2" rigid foam insulation. You can cut it with a knife or hand

  • Posted in thread: when to fly or batch on 01-03-2013 at 12:16 AM
    I now batch sparge as a matter of convenience, because it is a 4.5 hr brew day instead of a
    6+hr brew day. When I fly sparge, one thing I notice is that within a few minutes of a 30-45
    min sparge the ...

    I don't get bad flavors from batch sparging and neither should you.The red flag that I see is
    you building water. Use some well water or spring water or some other natural source as a
    control. I may b...

  • Posted in thread: Can I mix my water and grains and THEN heat to mash temp? on 11-11-2012 at 06:52 PM
    yes, I've heard of people doing this. the issue with doughing in cold I think is that the malt
