I think CMC malts would be a good sub for any American malt.

What malt is it?  For a domestic malt, I prefer Canada Malting Company to Briess.

Did a summer saison with spelt on Sunday.  After I get back from vacation, I'll be making more lambic wort.  I picked up about 20 pounds total of raw grain at the health food store for these batches.

I hear they throw feces all over your organic vegetables  :o

Yes, but it is ORGANIC feces!


Just wait till GMO feces comes out.  You'll have to pay Monsanto on a per-crap basis!

Fish bladders???  What, are they trying to make their crappy mass produced beer taste like traditional cask ale?

So does the gypsum go in before the mash, or after the mash? And is it desirable to use RO water and build because this seems pretty "light" vs my tap water?

I usually add the minerals proportionally to the mash ad the sparge water.  If you need to lower your mash pH even more, you can add all the salts to the mash.

I like some hop presence in my Saisons, so I also favor the sulfate.  After a gypsum addition, this is what my water looks like:

57.9   Calcium (mg/l)   
8.0   Magnesium (mg/l)   
21.0   Sodium (mg/l)   
83.6   Sulfate (mg/l)   
48.0   Chloride (mg/l)   
59.0   Bicarbonate (mg/l) *

If you have the 809, you can upgrade the impeller and you'll have the 809-HS, which has 12 feet of head and should be good enough.

That will clog.  Even a bazooka screen clogs pretty easily in a kettle unless you get a strong whirlpool.

Get this mesh from McMaster. I skipped the step where they sewed the edges with ss thread.  It's a PITA and crimping it twice works just as well.

Going Pro / Re: Going Pro Cheap - NJ Farm Brewery Licensing and Fees
« on: July 21, 2013, 07:41:19 AM »
The license here only says, "The beer to be sold and delivered under paragraph (2) of this subsection shall be manufactured with an ingredient from a Maryland agricultural product, including hops, grain, and fruit, produced on the licensed farm."  That doesn't preclude using wheat or another grain as 30% of the grist.  As long as you aren't violating the spirit of the law by, say, adding one farm grown hop cone per batch, it seems like it should be fine.
