The easy way is 2-row and flaked maize. Stirling will work great. Crystal will add a little American hops aroma, which would be nice.

Thanks. I will check out that link for sure. Just kind of threw the recipe together so it will likely change considerably. I saw a recipe by Jamil on byo that gave me the idea.

BRD is new to me. Is there an english version, or just DE? There doesn't appear to be an english download page, so I'm hesitant.

You can change the language of the software from the menu: Einstellungen / Sprache / Change to English

Edit: I believe .net v4 is required for BRD

All Grain Brewing / Re: Introduction to Low Oxygen Brewing

Oxidation is definitely an interesting and relevant topic to be sure.

It was always said, "Drink it young."  For good reason.

Years ago, I had been experimenting with malting my own grains while using SMB and hydrogen peroxide during the steeping phase (used to enhance sprout rate... see Malts and Malting, Briggs, et. al.).  These two additives definitely gave the fresh malt an almost overpowering "soft malt/soft peanut butter" smell.  Of course the malt made excellent beer and unknowingly I was applying some of these same principles as I was boiling/cooling my strike water while using campden tablets in the mash and sparge water to combat chlorine and then krausening in the keg.

After reading the low oxygen papers I have many more unanswered questions about my "fresh malt" and it's contribution to the flavors and smells of fresh beer.

Thanks to those who have pursued this to the N'th degree with their time and money and made the knowledge available to the masses!

From the AHA website:
"The members of the Governing Committee are elected by the members of the AHA and charged with shaping the policy and activities on their behalf."
I can see how someone would think that the GC members would be conduit that brought ideas like this from rank and file members like us on the forum here to the AHA.
It would be interesting to see a chart of organization for the AHA. What I'm hearing from the GC members and some wording in the by laws is that the GC and the AHA are two entities rather than the GC being part of the AHA. It explains that the GC members say things along the lines of "well we could talk to the AHA...". I had previously thought that the GC kind of was the AHA, in a sense.

If that's what you thought, I can see why you'd be confused.  The GC function is pretty much advisory.  We can bring issues to the AHA and advocate for them if we want to.  They can bring issues to us to get our thoughts on them.  But we have no power or budget to actually enact anything.  We do take on some duties, like me with this forum, or the subcommittee work we do.
Yes, and I see the website calls the GC "advisory".
I assumed it was more like a Governing Committee on a board of directors. I work for a non profit and our BOD has a GC that is responsible for the most essential decisions: hiring an ED, large purchases of land or building projects, moving money around etc.
Denny sums it up well, the GC is an advisory board. The AHA Staff (what, 8 people?) have a buget, assigned work with objectives, and lets face it, performance reviews. It is a hobby for us, it is a job for the AHA staff. What we propose needs to come out of the budget and manhours. The AHA is also a division of the Brewers Association,so the AHA operates under the auspices of the BA.

This can be brought to the attention of the AHA staff for consideration.

Thanks for the link, Denny.  I had been looking at some of the information, as well.  I think that the Briess blog link on how crystal malt is made is super informative.

That and more info is in Experimental Homebrewing, also.

Thanks. I don't plan to use/find 6 row or cluster though I realize those are traditional.

I wish I could do these batches as fast as everyone here. Guess my avatar should be a turtle. It takes me 8+ to do 20 gallons.
