Re: 1st corn mash w/enzymes

This mash yielded .5 gallon @90p with a 100ml cut off the front end on the strip.a teaspoon off the tap tasted like sweet creamy buttery oatmeal with likker in it.I like!! Cant wait to see if I can replicate the flavor but with a bit higher conversion I'm doing it on grain this time too
