Posted this in the "What's brewing this weekend" thread:
My first beer with Brewtan B today, a Munich Helles. Ditched my "low DO" process I've been using lately and did my old method of dumping the water into the mashtun, etc. The foam on top of the mash was an orange color...interesting. Wort was really clear in the second runnings, but the first runnings looked normal. I did notice a crazy amount of taige in the mash though. That isn't anything new to me though, it was maybe just a little more than I'm used to seeing. The wort tastes smoother and maybe not as bittersweet as usual. I am planning to rack it to a keg when it's a few points from expected final gravity though. I've been noticing major improvements from doing that alone.
