All Grain Brewing / Re: Step Mashing? Important?

I do it once in a while so I can see if maybe I missed something when I decided it doesn't make much difference.  So far I haven't been able to convince myself I'm missing something by not step mashing.

But it's not the only way to get the kind if result you're talking about.

No way! This is the Internet and only one person at a time is allowed to be right.

Let me know when it's my turn! ;)

Truly amazing how tight you can set the mill and the improved conversion.
At least somebody gets it.
I get that it reduces dust. And also that it may help with lautering. I have absolutely no faith that it produces a superior conversion.
A finer crush will almost certainly improve conversion.  What's your current conversion rate?

Jumping in here....I get 99-100% conversion efficiency regularly.  I crush very fine and don't condition the malt.  I think what euge is getting at is that you can achieve the same results without conditioning.  Now, if you've tried it both ways and conditioning works better for you, so be it.  But it's not the only way to get the kind if result you're talking about.

Looks awesome gentlemen!  We will roast a turkey (may brine it this year).  Everything else is kind of up in the air still since we are not having very many people over this year.

I'm a huge fan of brining turkey.

 Spatchcocked turkey on the grill with an ancho/smoked paprika rub and an apple sage glaze.  Fresh cranberry sauce, as I do every year.  My wife will be making cornbread dressing and a chocolate pecan pie.  Guests will be bringing the rest.  But mainly I'm looking forward to having furniture in the house again since our renovations will be done on Tues!

Well, I didn't like how everytime I loaded the forum on safari on my iPad it logged me off and prompted me to buy Tapatalk - which I finally did because it was so annoying being prompted and kicked off so there is a major strike against it.

I didn't notice that, but I usually use Mercury (iPad version of Firefox) on my iPad.

Thanks! Not used to working in Tapaptalk. I got it fixed right after you did! I f'ing hate tapatalk!

I think you'll love it once you get used to it.

I always use a hydrometer for the FG. I can never get a correct reading even with the correction on my refracto. In fact, I've gone back to using my hydrometer full time again. I was starting to get high readings every time I used my refracto, and it was calibrated correctly.

Yeah, I've got 2 refractometers but I've given up on them and gone back to a hydrometer for everything.

Ingredients / Re: Munich and Wheat

I wanna make a wheat beer but I'm out of Pils. How do you think 50/50 wheat and Weyerman Munich 1 would work?

Pretty much a dunkleweizen.

Except I will be using wlp007.

Missed that.  I guess when I see the word "wheat" I just tune out!  ;)

Oh well, even Denny had to try a few times before finally getting something passed out there in Orygun... Maybe it will be reintroduced in the new session and passed without much fanfare...otherwise we will need to get the letters and emails started to get some information flowing to allow the homebrews to do the same at some of the 2013 events.

Not to brag, but the law got passed the first time around without a single vote against it in any committee or legislative body.

Only 2 more weeks til my garage/brewery has my furniture out of it and I can brew again!  Assuming I remember how!
