Posted in thread: Corn Cobs instead of Rice Hulls? on 11-26-2015 at 05:24 AM
Big Ed, November, I use a Braumeister and don't have many problems except for Weiss and Wit
beers using oats and/or wheat malt. Even then, can work around by removing the top sieve and
stirring a coup...

Thanks for the quick responses guys. Good advice to test a batch. Actually when I managed to
get some rice hulls once I washed them thoroughly first as they had a most terrible aroma.
(This was on adv...

Can one use roughly ground corn cobs instead of rice hulls to loosen the mash? We do not grow
rice in this country and importing it is costly (like bringing in a container of bubblewrap!).
Corn grows ...

Thanks Jon, I will do a test. When reading your reply I saw at the bottom of the page some

want to do 1ga...

I have the same 'going on holiday' issue and want to know if I can low carb an ale and leave it

I'm smiling as I just had the identical experience (posted somewhere on this thread a few days
ago). First time with US 05, quick-cooled wort to around your temperature, aerated the **** out

Great feedback, thanks guys. Never heard of Fermcap-S. Definitely going to get me some. Also,
thanks for the heads up re hop utilization.It just seemed logical that less water yields higher

I think you should get that beer somewhere cooler. At 74 degrees it is likely to become an
explosive fermentation and leave you with fusel alcohol and off flavors. Put it in a tub of
cold water and us...
