    So maltabella is ground pretty fine, but it's not a FLOUR. I can compare it most to something like a maize meal. It's a meal, not a flour. It...

    Why not just buy some Maltabella? It's milled, malted sorghum. Mix it with cold water and then slowly with hotter to prevent it lumping up. It...

    Agreed with langchop. Also, hops isomerize at around 80C anyway, so that's also fine. I don't care much for the different temps and altitudes and...
