    my Frigidaire LFPH44M4LB conversion/build

    Is red wheat malt the same as dark wheat malt?

    So - I had this very problem today. I'm curious myself and almost wonder if the OP is brewing Jamil's Dunkle. I have white wheat I'm going to use. I'm considering toasting it in my oven to increase the lovibond from 2.4 to 9. suggestions on oven temp and time?

    Kab4 stand Modificaation

    I had a fabricator/welder buddy of mine do this. You need to torque the wing nuts on pretty good else the shell will want to fall. I mainly made this adjustable so I can use various pots. It's the highest it can go right now because i primarily use keggles.

    recommended brew stand?

    It appears i can have a single tier system with 1 pump. Is that correct? So I can transfer from HTL to Mashtun (either batch or sparge) and then pump to boil kettle?

    Rectangular or Round Cooler for MLT?

    I have the homedepot 10 gallon that jafo28 suggested. Got it for 39 bucks + tax. It holds heat very well. The only downside to this it can only hold ~23lbs of grain with a grain to water ratio of 1 (and that's very full). If you plan on doing very big beers @ 10 gallon batches the rectangular...
