I wouldn't fault you for bottling now. It's the Lazy Ant way isn't it?

I've had good results with Castle (Belgian Pils). I also like Simpsons for crystal malts.The sack of this I bought was full of chaff. I felt the need to winnow it before using. I took a box fan and poured the grain through the breeze. It didn't seem right to buy so much imported material that ended up straight in the compost. Perhaps I got the bottom of the grain elevator, but I've been afraid to buy another.
Why? At the temp of the HLT there's not going to be anything in there. Seems like more hassle w/the foam to me, let alone the cost.Good idea. If you get it hot enough it will be sanitized too.I would still follow up with starsan personally.
