Did you leave this one longer in the mash tun or did the shorter scheduled 60mins

Barely lot 2 method 2
Grind barley finer 1.025mm gap set off marking on malt muncher.

Soak rice hulls overnight.Add 40l water adjust ph to 5.5 heat to 95c add grain and hulls. Hold at 88c 2hrs to gelatinize. Add 20ml rye enzyme hold 2 hrs brix 12. Drop to 70c beta glucan rest(break up the gummy stuff) drop to 65 add amg enzyme rest 3 hrs (atentuation)? Drop to 63c add another 20ml rye enzyme after 3hrs 15 brix.. will post gravity and volume in fermenter tomorrow gunna let it sit in insulated tun overnight see what happens..

You done any mashs yet rcal?

Thought this may help someone. Its a excell spreadsheet to calculator new wort gravity when two different worts are mixed. Thanks to ezi tasting for doing the spreadsheet for me :handgestures-thumbupleft:
Wort SG Mixer.xlsx


Easy to use, v1 volume 1, sg 1 is gravity 1/ v2 volume 2 sg2 gravity 2 :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Just drained mash tun from first lot 100% corn using enzymes. 38l sg of 1.066 effeciency of 75.13%.
10 kg corn 15l rice hulls 4:1 mash thickness 10l sparge water. Sparged at 70c. Happy enough with that :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Thought I would add couple pics. Corn grind and pic of corn rice hulls mix. Make sure you soak rice hulls then drain and mix well with corn before adding to mash tun

Also gelatinize till corn swollen gloopy or better still near solid mess in mash tun. Add enzyme give it 15 mins or so for it to liquidfy then you can start recirc the wort :handgestures-thumbupleft: trust me you cant recirc while gelatinozing you will end up with a blown element and or pump..dont ask me how I know :laughing-rolling:

same place as the cracked corn. they are used for chicken bedding scratch fodder 80l slightly compressed bag was about $15 :handgestures-thumbupleft:

edit: to get crack on cracked corn I did one pass on smallest gap on twin roller malt muncher :handgestures-thumbupleft: apparently they are not designed for corn but I have put "a bit" through it :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Cheers bluc... there is a heap of duck sheds locally so they prob use the same for the bedding in them. :handgestures-thumbupleft:
So would you buy another malt muncher or go for a bit fancier one next time round?

Will see how long it takes to die... Proper one suited to corn is about $500 landed :o :shock: :sad: The malt muncher can be had for $60. If I can get two years munching corn I will prob just get another cheapy for now. Malt muncher has been going 4 years now but have prob only put 6 or so bags corn through it..Mostly malt barley..
