PM recipe

Recommended Posts

So I decided to try one of the PM recipes. It should arrive tomorrow in the mail. It just occured to me are the grains milled or will I have to crush them? If so any ideas on how to accomplish this without a mill?

Chew them up and spit them into your boil kettle full

of water. I call it the baby bird method. Takes awhile. That's why an AG batch takes 8 hours.

No worries! I did my first PM last weekend. Great fun, you are going to love it.

 

And the smell of grains mashing in the water.....if I were the type of guy who did the scented candle thing I would try to find a scented candle with that smell.

 

But I'm not. So there you go!

True story: The ptyalin enzymes in your mouth help with the break down of starches in the malts. There is a popular drink in South America made from corn that is chewed then spit into a fermenter. The enzymes in their mouths break down the unfermentable starch into fermentable maltose. It's called "chicha". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicha

OK.  Looks like a chance for you to start the Mr.Chicha company, build it up, and then get a rich Aussie to buy you out.....or would it have to be Senor Chicha?
