I've been using a BCS Controlled 2 vessel 240V RIMs system (MLT and BK) for the last year. RIMs let me hit my strike temp dead on every time. Efficiency is much greater. Step mashes are a piece of...

Treat it like mead

I can't believe your LHBS won't crush grains. Who cares the amount as long as you buy them from them. I'd talk to the owner. If I lived by I'd gladly loan you my crusher.

The top pics look like the start of a lacto pellicle. The two pictures on the bottom with the "ropiness" definitely looks like pedio .. not lacto. Seems odd that you'd have one infected with lacto...

To be quite frank, if you pitch them into a starter it'll probably take them atleast a week or longer just to show any fermentation. 3-4 weeks should work out well in my opinion. I wouldn't even...
