Hey I was just wondering the other day if someone here has made beer using ongrain fermentation. Ie ferment ongrain, lauter at about 72 horus or so, boiler after launter, add hops during the boil, filter and bottle ?? I know ongrain fermenting is mainly used for whiskey, and I am a big believer but I was wondering if anyone here had tried it for some home brew.
It would get infected if you boiled 72 hours after mashing.

Boil post fermentation is also kinda funky. I don't know anyone who makes beer on the grain. Filtering the grain-bed is a skill in itself for single vessel brewers.
you would lose all alcohol during the boil, correct?
I haven't done it, but thinking it through, I would:
mash as usual, skip hopping entirely, ferment.
Rack off, dry hop the hell out of it with a solid aromatic hop, secondary fermentation
Rack off and condition as you please
I might do this now haha
Well i think i will give it a go. What do I havd to lose. I am locked down anyway. Watch this space.
Bitter flavor and tannin from grain husk is the main issue I think.
Yeah I'd probably steer clear of the black malt
Mmmmm lactic acid and dirty diapers!
