Pils is lagering, I'll keg it in a couple of weeks.  But I'm confident enough I brewed another yesterday with the same 153°F/170°F program.  Once again, excellent yield, same iodine test result.  I think I gave both a couple extra minutes at 170, and this time I didn't even keep the sparge temp up to 170 and everything looks good.   I'll report back here when I tap it!
Hey JT,  finally drinking that first simplified Pils,  and as I expected (from observing this and two subsequent in the pipeline) no ill effects, maybe confirming (not enough data points yet) the advantages I hypothesized. I'm sticking with the single conversion rest-mash off program, and moving my attention to other areas to tweak my process. You?

I definitely like the Kölsch just fine.  With or without the hochkurz and with or without the carahell.  It's no problem for me to run a hochkurz, but not sure it's adding anything that I can detect (without performing a triangle test or even side by side).  I might try a shortened hochkurz next brew day.  Or I may just go single infusion. 
It has moved me away from long mash times.  Don't see the need.

The "clean" version of my saison split batch experiment. That beautiful head disappears quickly but thanks to the folks here and on HBT I've got the issue sorted out. Oats have lipids that will collapse an otherwise beautiful head of beer. I went waaay overboard on the oats with this one so just use restraint and add foam positive ingredients like wheat or flaked barley.
