Your best bet, if you wanna make the best beer, is to probably just spend the money. FWIW the amount of DME you would need to make your starter is probably about the same cost.

Aw, I totally missed that too! Funny!
Alright, play with this idea....what if...now just what if! ... you wore the vibrams inside of your regular shoes? Would that be, like, the best of both worlds?
There's a local brewery that is opening (supposedly) here next year and they are going to call it "Salty Nuts".
Mmmmmm ....no thanks!
But, but, remember what you said you do to your mash in that other thread?
I ran 6 miles in them once at a 10 mile per min. pace...
Holy crap! I gotta get me some of these shoes!
Tom: I used the Weyermann Dark Munich blended with their regular Munich the last time I made a bock... I use Best Malz now for almost all of my German grains, but I have not used the Best Dark MunichThanks!
Both Weyermann and Best light and dark Munich malts are ~7L and 10L. Other maltsters can be up to 10L for their light and 20L for their dark.
My last doppelbock was all 10L Munich.
Just to back up a little, I may be wrong but I thought Rostmalz was some type of roasted malt, not crystal. I don't have JZ's book, so I know nothing about his recipe for a bock. I'd appreciate some clarification on the topic if anyone has it.Keith, all I can find is that JZ lists it as Meussdoerffer Rost (200 ºL). From what I can find it seems as if Cargill distributes Meussdoerffer malts but I can only find the Pils, Vienna and Munich no Rost. Appears they used to have an internet presence at www.meussdoerffer.de but no longer.
I love my vibrams!! If I could wear them everywhere I would. They need to make a dress shoe!!
majorvices - If they are hurting your wife's heal she needs to pay attention to her foot strike. She was probably a heal striker in normal sneakers and since they are highly padded it didn't hurt. With vibrams you need to run on the balls of your feet.
These shoes have pretty much taken care of most of my knee pain from running but it took me about a month to get to 4-5 miles in them due to needing to strengthen my feet and calves because of a change in my running mechanics.
