    I moved house, now my great tasting homebrew isn't so great anymore

    Water is about 90% or more of any beer and it is the most over looked ingredient. If nothing else, get a charcoal filter and some 5.2 ph buffer. I brewed with that for years and made excellent beers. I how have an RO system and build the water profile I want. The best brewer I've ever known when...

    What we're your mash temps. Excuse me if I overlooked it.

    What I did for beer today

    10 gallons of future single malt scotch. And before you say anything, it is beer first.

    Make a starter or not make a starter?

    What beer are you brewing, ale or lager, what's the OG, and what is the cell count in the starter vs required? It matters.

    Make a starter or not make a starter?

    A starter will propagate and increase cell count but it needs more than a day. It goes through the same steps each time. Five gal of wort with yeast is just a five gal starter. Shaking will work but a stir plate is better, it also draws some oxygen into the mix.

    Boil kettle condenser - no overhead ventilation needed

    What is your water pressure? It may be enough for the smaller kettle but not the larger one. BH sells a pump to increase water pressure.

    Sanitized with clorox bleach but didn’t rinse

    I'd toss it. Lesson learned. I don't know what equipment you have but bleach will pit stainless steel.

    Fusarium-Infected Malt. Salvaging by Picking the Bad Grains Out?

    WTF? Toss it and get some more. Vienna is Vienna, not much difference.
