-There was a discussion Here about-mash in around 70C and letting the mash cool to the 60's or Less. This will get the Alpha amylase(Fast acting) going strong, without denaturing the Beta amylase(slower acting). Then, when the mash cools into the 60's the remaining Beta amylase, can work as long as...

In case your water is on the low range AKA soft water you need to compensate this because dark malts dur...

A good rule of thumb used with good results is 0,75 grams per liter for batches up to 1.060 og and 1 gram per liter for og 1.060 and above this is supposed to be the pitching rates the pro use.

''THE SWEET LIQUOR SHOP'' is the best explanation for BIAB VS all other mashing methods I have read BY FAR :champ: :champ: :champ: :champ: .
Consider to use this if you are planning to write BIAB instructions .
I am looking forward the part three!!!

Hey nik, I've looked into both the 'Rotokeg' and the 'Keg King' both of which are not sold here and due to their size would be hellish pricey to ship to Oz. We have a trip back to the UK planned for next year so I'm planning to bring a Keg King barrel back. I reckon they'd be pretty good. They're c...
