I was transferring from primary to secondary and noticed a white buildup below the krausen

I heat my mash kettle with a burner does that matter? The false bottom sits about 4 inches off
the bottom so I figure it's ok. It's the best way I've found to hit and maintain my mash

I have two 16 gallon stainless kettles one for my mash and one for the brew kettle. I typically

While I like the idea of cooking with grains it seems like a lot of work AND I'll have a ton of
