Lag time is mostly meaningless for predicting how a beer will turn out.

This thread makes me wonder about the actual practices that go into making high quality conventional malt....
do you get a better malt when the grain is obtained through using less fertilizer? Just as a quality winemaker wouldn't want to poison his grape-growing soil with fertilizers that may influence the character of the grape...does the same go for the grain that a malster would select for market?
I assume that is points/pound/gallon...Mash efficiency: 29.4 ! whohoo (1.050 OG, 5 gallons exactly, 8.5 lbs grain)You might want to double check your math.
Do you have any other recommendations Narv? I've always held it up as a shining example of the style, maybe I've been wrong the whole time!
I also snagged a Saison du Buff to taste the best example of the style that I know.
