If my mash tun can hold enough water after my mash has converted, would I be able to add and recirculate the entire pre-boil volume and then drain? I have been fly sparging but Santa brought me a new (bigger) mash tun so I am thinking about trying this out this weekend. Thoughts?
I once had a CO2 which had a first certification date older than I was...
"Steep" or better termed "mash" by steeping (there is that word again) by keeping the grains at about 152F (between 150-155F) for an hour". Don't worry about being exact, but the more you are the more repeatable your process will be.
The difference between being a mash and steeping this way is the presence of base malt that will provide enzymes for conversion.
another difference being that you should care about the water/grain ratio, right? Need the grains to be able to get the mash to the proper pH for the enzymes to do their thing.
My experience is that I had problems when using Iodophor on my fermenters.
What kind of problems?
I just joined as well. a birthday gift. but i did not get a member number via email. do i have to wait till the card arrives in the mail?
Thanks for the response. I know the numbers well enough, but wondered if I actually needed them or not.
