All Grain Brewing / direct fire mash tun
« on: June 10, 2011, 06:04:37 PM »
Has anyone had success doing step mashes using a direct fire mash tun WITHOUT using a pump for recirculation.  I understand the danger of scorching, but I was wondering if there is a low tech method (stirring, manual recirculation etc...) that may be used to do direct fire step mashing.  I just built a keggle with a false bottom, but I don't want to do a HERMS/RIMS system, so I'm thinking about options....Thanks !

THANKS TO ALL FOR RESPONDING TO MY QUESTION.  Obviously this topic is subject to further research & review !  I especially appreciate your insight, Denny.  You made me a fan of batch sparging, and now the MIxStir...
Cheers !!!

Yeast and Fermentation / PURE O2 vs. NATURAL AIR AERATION
« on: January 21, 2010, 09:53:01 AM »
Does using pure O2 offer any significant advantages over aerating with plain air ?  The only advantage I can see is that pure O2 only takes seconds to oxygenate the wort whereas natural air takes minutes.  Is that the only difference ?
Thanks,
Marco
