Just a few comments: Three Cheers to John for coming to the defense
of aluminum( hip,hip, hooray!) One of my brewing associates has brewed lots
of batches in an aluminum stock pot( about 5 yrs. worth) and I see no evidence
of pitting, which would indicate dissolution of the metal. I have recently
invested in a 6 gal heavy walled Al pot and have not noticed any of the
dreaded off flavors either.
On the question Gary had about grain husks; the first,and probably foremost,
reason for not getting rid of the husks is there essentiality in your sparging
filtration bed.(wait, is that a word?)

Happy Fermentations,

Stephan M. Koza
