PeteB Posted August 12, 2011 Share Posted August 12, 2011 I am using a lauter tun to make 100% rye. Rye mash is well known to have very long runoff times because of its viscosity. The lenght of time allows a greater chance of an infection taking hold before the yeast starts. If I put a UV steriliser in the line where the wort comes out of the tun this should greatly reduce the chances of getting an infection in my fermenter. Any experiences, comments or theories would be most welcome. PeteB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
