Kinda see I was wanting to try steeping the grains like sun tea . I thought It would give it different. Characteristics to the flavor . Am i right since it would take a few days to steep . I was going to try it this weekend. Cause here in NJ its going to be like 90 all weekend

I think you will be surprised at what would be growing in your 'grain tea' after a couple days in the sun....

Well it would be sealed. Plus I was going to boil the water first before I added anything to it. To kill any bacteria.

To my knowledge that's a way to start a sasion...having the sweet wort and grains be in contact with the elements would either cause a wild fermentation or a sour wort beer.

Grain goes funky REALLY quick. Leave some spent grain out for 24 hours sometime in a "sealed" container...yuck. Smells like rotten milk.

I wouldn't try it, but if you do, do it with very little and see what happens.

Even with a sealed container..having wet grain in a Luke warm bucket for a cooked days will allow the grain to mold. That's why they dry grain after malting

Those grains are not sterile and could contain any number of bacteria.

That's saison,a Belgian farmhouse ale. They like fermenting at higher temps than normal.
