Also consider your end goal. If it is to make great beer for you to enjoy in your own home, I'd

I wouldn't recommend the ferulic acid rest or a protein rest unless you are positive it is with
floor malted pilsner. If it is well modified, the protein rest has already been accomplished by

Agree with answers 2 and 3 above. For 1, even with recirculating and controlling for heat, your
efficiency will be off if you don't sparge, Even if you put all the water in at once. That is

any particular reason you'd be investigating this? It sounds like it will give you good
