High folk, I havent been able to put a brew down (untill a couple of days ago) for just on a year due to ongoing family issues. I have a 50 litre four vessel system, with the the rims being an independent unit to the HLT. The problem is I'm not too young any more and handling heavy gear (for me anyway) and cleaning up and disposing of wet grain just about killed me. I don't want to stop brewing, but definitely going to have to go differently about it. I understand you can't avoid cleaning up some of the gear but I would like to take a bit of the heavy work out of it. I thought maybe going extract and mini-mash, but worried I'm going to end up with that fairly recognisable extract flavour. I haven't had much experience with mini-mash either as I went pretty much straight from extract to all grain. Some say mini mashes + extract can be pretty good. So any thoughts on this, and am I too worried about the extract flavours.
