Re: Lost my distilling buddy

Then several years ago I got MY DOG. His puppy picture is my Avatar. He would insist on riding everywhere wit...

Re: Corn grits vs Whole Corn

Not sure how "natural" grits are - or are not - in Australia. Mostly a cost thing. Around here 50 pounds of corn - whole or cracked - is around $8 - $10 compared to as much as half that cost for a 5 pound bag of "artisan" grits or polenta. Then just grind it yourself. And that's not rocket science, ...

Re: Conversion of Corn Starch to fermentable Sugar

However my guy at the homebrew supply is swearing to me that any non malted grains will not convert to sugars, regardless of what else is in there (thus non-malted rye or wheat included in the recipe would not convert, but would only add flavor etc). I believe you have "qualified" "your guy" :mrgre...

Welcome to HD. The hobby is nothing like the tv series. It's lots more fun then that. Enjoy the forums.
And a lot more expensive and time consuming...
Perhaps. But I used to play golf.
As frustrating as this sometimes is, NO comparison.

Maybe I missed it Dies anybody have a scaled down version
Maybe 5-10 gal mash
Thank you
I see that you are NOT a noob.
One of the first things I learned it takes just a little more effort to make a large enough mash for 3-4 stripping runs for a good spirit run.

Plus, it'll keep for a while.
