Subject: Clever Hack to Mash Grain
Date: 1989-03-01 03:21:14 GMT

This evening, in order to add a little extra gravity to a canned
mix, I mashed a couple of pounds of grain. The standard
procedure to start: make hot water, mix with grain; stir; check
temp.

Now, it takes a certain amount of time for the starch conversion
to take place, and I was more interested in eating supper than in
stirring and fretting over a pot of grain on the stove.

Solution: stick the mess in the oven, which was still warm from
supper. Set the oven for about 150\(de. Eat supper. I got a
good conversion, according to the iodine test, and in good time.
Allow a little extra time to clean dishes.
