I was under the impression the DT was still a work in progress.
really? maybe I need to read it again. The impression I got from the 'last' book Dark Tower was a clear message that it was an iterative reality and everything was going to happen again and, in fact had happened many times before. I didn't think that he would actually keep telling the story. But hey, if it's good King it's a good thing (hey that rhymes, I'm a poet and I didn't even know it (hey that rhymes...))
I've found that too much Cents give my beer an unpleasant candy-like sweetness, so I've started to shy away from them. Maybe I just need to crank up the sulfates with some water treatment.
Really? Maybe it is your source? Mine are always bright, clean and citrusy. I do like to blend them with columbus at the very least because they can be a little one dimensional on their own.
I can only speak to batch sparging....it is possible to compact the grain bved if you start the runoff too fast, although "too fast" will depend on your own lautering system. The best way to make sure you avoid compaction is to start the runoff slowly. I just barely crack the valve during vor.lauf, which is usually about 2-4 cups. After I return the vorlauf portion to the tun, I open the valve fully without problems.
