    Corn Mashing Temp

    Why wait until 185 to add the HTA? Is there an issue I am not understanding with skipping the pre malt and adding HTA at room temperature as you begin to mash in? That way as you begin to heat to 190 (whether by steam jacket or the adding of hot water discussed here) the liquefaction can begin as the corn begins to gel in the mid-170’s. Seems more efficient for heat transfer from the steam jacket as well as less strain on your agitator trying to move that thick mash until reaching 185 and adding HTA.

    SG of an all rye mash

    I just did my first 100% rye mash, and determining the SG with a hydrometer is not working in the thicker mash. Before attempting to take a reading, I strained the mash through a kitchen strainer to remove the solids. I also performed an iodine test and confirmed that all starches had been converted. I can try getting a reading with a refractometer. I used SEBflo TL during mashing. My question is- do I need to adjust my mash procedure or increase the amount of enzymes, or will an all rye mash always be too thick/gummy to take a SG reading with a hydrometer?

    TTB Certified hydrometer

    Can’t we just be helpful, or not respond at all... I recently ‘searched the forum’, and of the recommendations from posters interested in helping others, Kessler had the best pricing. Here are some of of the prices I was quoted in November.
