Our first whiskey mash (100% single malt barley) and fermentation is nearing completion (SG @ 1.01). We ferment and plan to strip grain on. The krausen on the top of our fermentation is about 8" thick. Any recommendations of how to handle the krausen? Do I use a shovel and remove it before I pump to the stripping still? Do I wait for krausen to fall - it is so thick I don't think it will. Thanks for any advice.
