I read the whole thread for that posting and the beer sounds like what Im looking for...just a few questions though...
what is torrified barley?
and...what if I cant get my temp. down to 68-70 for the secondary? will it be fine at...lets say 72-74?
Im slightly new so I dont mash anything. I just use DME and put some grains in a mesh bag and steep for a bit...
