mash tun time
jay built our new mash tun this week. basically, he just attached a drain valve and manifold to a cooler that he already had lying around. now we'll be able to mash our own grains for our homebrew, instead of just relying on malt extract. the extract isn't bad, per se, but it takes away some of the flexibility since we can't make up our own grain bills... we're stuck with whatever type of malt was used to make the extract. for all-grain brewers, though, there are hundreds of choices: roasted malts, smoked malts, pilsner malts, rye malts, wheat malts, munich malts, vienna malts, maris otter malts, golden promise malts, belgian malts, etc.
