Osedax: Can you elaborate on why you aren't brewing an all-rice beer? I am having some
allergies to millet as well as barley and wheat. So, I am thinking about going to 100% rice as
a last-ditch effor...

Rice is a pain to mill. I would say a gap of about .025" would be fine. Honestly, .035" is good

Maybe I should shut off the tinkerer and just make a straight up saison with Pilsner some oats

temps. Using less enzymes will help reduce attenuation, but it may hurt efficiency. Guess you
have to hit that...

You could add it after fermentation. However, if the beer tastes good now, I wouldn't mess with
it. I'm saying to substitute some of the malt for table sugar. For instance replace 10% of the

The only liquid yeasts that are GF are special order ones. RVA labs hooked me up last time. As
stated White Labs is below 10ppm when diluted in 5 gallons. You can further reduce that by
creating a sta...

Interesting experiment.I often wonder why beer brewers almost never consider just buying a
small bag of amylase enzyme and using that in the mash when they are concerned over conversion.
A homebrew sh...

How much Clausenii did you pitch? Does 5151 actually have enough for a brett only fermentation?
