Default That just sucks!!

Bought some grain for a BIAB Irish Red about a week ago. Threw in the pantry and got busy with life again (building deck + hunting season).

Tonight got everything cleaned up for brewing tomorrow night. Got my grains out to find out the damn weevils took over. Spent the last hr. trying to filter them out. Thought about making the batch but afraid might be eggs or infection or something.

Just gonna dump the whole grain bill and begin again Next time gonna throw my grains in a sealed fermenter.

Meh, extra proteins. Nothing that mash temps and a subsequent boil wont kill.

But if you usually make bread or dog treats with your spent grain, maybe skip this batch.

I have experience in this matter. Make beer with the grain.

The weevils would want you to do this.

Right, because 170 degree mashed weevils are way worse than eating the occasional turd.

I know it won't hurt, just a joke. Wait, who said anything about eating turds? I feel like I'm in Happy Gilmore right now. "You eat pieces of s*** for breakfast?!"

Hey that's pretty cool! I didn't get that through the app, had to open the browser. I wonder what else I've been missing.
