It would be more effective to go down in temp during the mash, allowing alpha to work first in it's ideal range, then move down into beta's ideal range. Your way should work fine too, but might not...

That stuff isn't as dangerous as all that. I tasted a drop undiluted, it's very tangy, i wouldn't recommend it, but it didn't burn a hole in my finger or tongue. Starsan is essentially the same...

Limit dextrinase enzyme is denatured above 149ish so some of the steps in a typical step mash wouldn't work in reverse, but if you keep it under 160, you should be fine if you're just depending on...

You have that backwards. Alpha amylase will break down the amylopectin very quickly, resulting in a negative iodine test, however beta amylase needs time to further break down the resulting amylose...

It's been a long while since I've had Jubalale, but when I was tweaking this recipe I was comparing notes against the real thing. I wasn't trying for a clone, but I thought the grain bill was pretty...

Personally, I don't view SS as an upgrade. Aluminum is lighter weight, conducts heat much better (faster to boil and faster chill), easier to drill, easy to clean (since I don't want it gleaming),...

Also the link between aluminum and Alzheimer's was disproven some time ago, so there's no worries about that. I think there's a sticky mega-thread about aluminum pots too actually.

Just boil water in it before the first use so it builds a grey oxide layer. Don't scrub that off or you'll need to boil water again.

Valves are easy to add. Aluminum drills like butter and...

It's the house yeast used in all of Rogue's beers. It works well with a wide variety of styles. I found it to be similar to US-05 but without the potential for peach esters, it attenuates a little...

Seems like most porter recipes call for the whitbread strain or similar english ale yeast. I prefer cleaner yeast like chico, pacman, or even kölsch. I might use Conan on my next one.
