I'll be adding to this Tek in the future. I want to get it going along to help anybody who'd like to try an easy grain prep method. Simply put Step 1. Add cold water to the grain soak vessel youre using. Pick an apprpriate size vessel that you will only fill half way with grains. You can use an ice tea container or beer cooler as a vessel if youd like. I use a beer cooler. The vessel is what youre hydrating your grains in. Step 2. Add an appropriate amount of Powdered Food Grade Gypsum to the soak water. If its a small container use a large pinch. I use a tsp for 5 gallons of soak water. Step 3. You are going to add your grains to the water. Immediatley before you put your grains into the soak water be sure to mix up thoroughly the water and Gypsum. Add the grains while the water is still swirling around to distribute all the gypsum, Be sure the soak water covers the grains completely with a few inches of water. Top up with water if you have to and give a quick swirl. Step 4. If your using a small container place it into the refrigerator for minimum 3 days with no ice. Grains can soak for a week and are still fine to use. If your using a beer cooler add ice. I use milk jugs filled with water and frozen. Two liter soda bottles filled with ice work great too. If the ice melts then add more ice. Once again a week is ok. I find this gives me more time in case something comes up and i cant get to the grains right away. Step 5. Empty your cold soaked fully hydrated grains into a wire strainer,rinse thoroughly and let drip dry for 15 minutes. Step 6. Load your grains into the jars or bags and PC.
