    That certainly is some giggly bs. I hope you have a decent lawyer to hold them up as much as they do to you if it really is those small town games. If it's the same lawyer in two cases you might be...

    If your already changing the beer by that much, why bother worrying just yet on the bio-transformation? Why not just harvest and then do the dry hop? Depending on the yeast you use, how much and...

    The FG is perfectly reasonable too, but you would be measuring the efficiency based off the total potential, instead of the total potential you could potentially get. Doing it with the CG as-is...

    What brand(s) are you using? Brands like Castle and Ireks provide enough on their websites to figure it out. You need the FG (Fine Grind), the FG/CG (Fine-Coarse difference) and the moisture...

    Your sparge rate should be enough to put 1-2 inches of water above the bed, if your able to maintain it. I do a continuous sparge though, and start low at 8-10 LPM and then progress to 15-16 LPM...

    That all looks right to me. You shouldn't need to bother with a stone though, all you'll want to do is push some CO2 into the kettle from the man-way at the end. Blanketing the top of the kettle...

    It depends more on what that 390 consists of. I'd say run it through the RO just to make sure you stay consistent. The well will change and the beer will change with it if your not doing monthly...

    Wonderful, thanks so much. I'm not in a position to drill into the wall yet, but I'll definitely pursue that once I get the rest sorted. I have a 3 ton ac in a sealed brewery with no air exhaust or...

    Unfortunately this is India, if I found a similar auger here I doubt I'd get an SS screw. I'd also be concerned about milling rate matching flow in such a small tube. I have a rad with a 5hp motor,...

    I've got one actually. It's a pretty decent DME mash tun, with a hydrator assembly. Problem is that they designed the place with about 3 feet of room above that hydrator. So I fill the mash tun...
