This is our technique for making a corn mash. We describe the method we use to steep our flaked corn (you can use corn meal) with 6 row barley to use the Barley's enzymes to convert the starches in the corn into fermentable sugars. After conversion we also demonstrate how to test your success in converting the starches. After all is done and tested we added it to our fastfermnet and finished up by adding the yeast nutrient and yeast.
I can do this process with a mash tun correct?
Man thank you! I know this from 2015 but frill THANK U, ima "kid" 28 n I dont know NO one who does this (And Im from KY!!!! lol Louisville ) but ya just thanks man, u a life saver id been to scared to try w/o this
Hi George, noticed you didn’t add Glucoamylase, if you had, would you have pitched it as the same time as you pitched the yeast? Thanks
Can you use stsrsan which is 95 % iodine? Just wondering
Thanks for your vids learned a lot.

Hey there! great video and could be a potential life saver for a project of mine. Could you point me in the direction of this plugin please?
Well, Is this plugin 'convertinstanceUE4.py' right? but nothing happened when I dragged this file to my scene. either other files (pyc, ui).. Does this still work? or did I used this wrong?

Nice video Larry and a great build, Cheers!
Nice work. When I made my mash tun I went copper with the Coleman 48 quart cooler. Pretty similar design to yours except I had used copper. Also I had did slits on mine. When I was in the debate on doing slits vs drilled holes, I had read that since the grain is more cylindrical shaped slits were less likely to clog when doing slits rather than holes. Weather it's significant once its loaded full of grain not sure but never had a stuck sparge on mine.
Thanks Larry, great instructional video as always. Say, for a larger cooler, do you recommend a proportionally sized design or would this false bottom size work just as well? I’d like to use a huge cooler for larger no sparge batches.
Is brass safe?
I did a quick google search and got mixed answers
Your domed lid cooler is why your volume was off, the lid is included. Thanks for sharing.
