I had no choice but to leave the grains for my hefeweizen in my car all day, which got pretty hot yesterday. How bad does that affect grains? Does that count for an acid rest (it might have been hot enough in there for a protein rest....) Kinda kidding... kinda not.


KEG 1 - Griff's Amarillo Pale Ale
KEG 2 - Christmas in Ireland Stout
KEG 3 - Bee Cave Hefewiezen
KEG 4 - Orange Honey Hefeweizen
KEG 5 - Dead Guy Clone

Old Frothingslosh, the pale stale ale with the foam on the bottom, brewed from hippity-hops on the banks for the Upper Crudney in Lower Slobbovia.

No, no water to support the reactions. I would, however, brew immediately.

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

Hell, you may have even modified it more by doing that.

this sounds like the lazy mans way to toast his own grain without using an oven or power source to do it. sounds like a very green idea to me, the tree huggers would be proud of you.

I wouldn't worry about it, that grain has to get to us somehow right? Those shipping trailers are the same conditions as your truck or worse.
