Fascinating story. I cant wait to see the documentary. Best of luck to you. Oh and I had to do it. I am now a fan of "Arctic Alchemy" on facebook.

I have always used the following chart with great success:

All Grain Brewing / Re: Flaked maize percentage for CAP
« on: November 16, 2009, 02:39:18 AM »
The last CAP I made used 25% flaked corn (3 lbs) and I thought it had way too much of a corn taste so I would think you should be in the ball park. Gail brings up a good question. What yeast are you using and what temperature are you fermenting at?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Adjunct mash procedure
« on: November 12, 2009, 04:37:01 AM »
Does a cereal mash really do anything that boiling the adjuncts doesn't?

Anyway, Palmer covers it pretty well (pg 174, doesn't seem to be in the first edition).

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't a cereal mash the same thing as boiling? I mean if you are using whole rice (not instant) then you will want to boil it. Same with whole oats. IIRC rolled oats and quick oats can be thrown right into the mash tun. The rolling process gelantize the starch. Same with corn. I believe whole corn needs to be boiled unless it has been rolled and/or flaked.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Malt conditioning rocks!

I wonder if conditioning the malt would cut down on the shredding of the husk when using a Corona mill. I know, a Corona mill. I am from the old school way of thinking so if it ain't broke then don't fix. That being said, I really am going to buy a real mill one of these days.

I use a 50qt rectangular coleman cooler with a ss toilet braid.  It has been working great for me. Oh and make sure you get the GREEN one  ;)

I am curious as to what yeast most people prefer for a Bock or an Octoberfest beer. I made an Octoberfest last year using wlp830 and everyone told me it was awesome. I have been wanting to try the wlp820 (Octoberfest/Marzen Lager) yeast but I am from the old school of thought. If it aint broke then dont fix it. So is the WLP820 worth a try?

Ah, so this is where you went.  I went to NB forum this morning looking for the link to this forum and couldn't find the thread.  I've moderated a few forums (other hobbies).  Moderating is necessary.  Overmoderating can be suicide.

I think the mass exodus has started. They shot themselves in the foot.

I would get a Saison going so you could have it ready by summer. Just my 2 cents worth  ;D

That is a work of art! Totally awesome. Your wife is going to regret letting you build that. She is never going to see you any more  ;D
