Default how mash parameters affect fermentability and efficiency

I finally completed, or called it complete, the series of experiments that had been working on for a while. The results are posted here on my wiki and also here as PDF.

In addition to that James interviewed me about that series of experiments for Basic Brewing Radio. The interview is this week's podcast I haven't listened to it yet, but James does a good job editing, so I trust him.

Check it out and let me know if you have questions on that subject that may be worth investigating.

Kai

Thanks for the support.

BTW, I fixed the affects vs. effects misspelling. I also kept a copy of the PDF that still has a file name starting with Affect… to keep the links working that I sent out. Someone from the AHA techtalk pointed that out.
