I use Best Wheat malt and don't have any of the issues you guys speak of. Kernal size is same as most 2 row. I do usually mash a little lower and longer to assure maximum ferment ability and conversion.

I'm not too keen on turning my hobby into something that becomes a drudge to perform.
I also work for a fairly large corp. While there are definite advantages to this the main suck about the job is my fellow employees. I studied and trained for many years to do what I love to do. It's the shocking behavior demonstrated by my "colleagues" that'll drive me from the industry and not the repetitive nature of my work.
I might end up sweeping floors in a brewery before long
Sorry for the double post but I intended to use oats to get a bigger mouth feel how does that compare to adding lactose
I have also had a Pils that was over 40 first round, but was given a kind score of 28 in the second round, as I got hurried in the bottling, and it had Diacetyl, as did the control bottle That prompted me buy a beer gun.
I don't understand why a beer gun would prevent diacetyl.
I've read of people setting up basic keg washer for $5k, but I think they usually cost a lot more than that.
That's about right for the automated units, but a "basic" keg washer can be put together for about $200-300. All you need is a coupler, a pump, some tubing, and a jerry-rigged stand.
