Hi, just joined because I have found this site useful over time.
I am sure I will have questions eventually, but there is enough info already posted to sink a battleship.

My interests are primarily in malted-corn based all grain mashing.
The sourcing of suitable corn to malt yourself, and a valid / reliable process.

I am curious about aging product.
I am starting to try that.
But I want to age the very best of what I make.

Sampling Buffalo Trace White Dog, which (IMO) is not very nice, i will be more picky in what i attempt to age.

I all grain mash and ferment on grain.
Do not have the equipment to still on grain, but will work up to that.
I never seem to have enough horizontal surfaces, clean, sterilised containers or time.

I use a power controller on an electric still, that allows me to run slow where necessary.
Copper Alembic, with metallic coating added by the yeast when running hot.

That's an intro, i am not a bot.

Happy home-brewing.
