Was that guy saying they mash in with only the flour? As in the flour sperated from the husks and other bits.
Just saw another part and it looks like there are husks.

Off-topic: I read a good article on Scotch a long time ago in Playboy. I think David Mamet wrote it. He was in Scotland and ended up at a Scotch tasting that was a bunch of old guys and it was a private thing held in the basement of some building that housed a bunch of aged scotch.  They would all get a sample of this or that scotch, discuss it, talk about the character, rate it, etc. and they eventually moved to a scotch that was very, very old and everyone got a very small sample.  They went around the table and one guy said, "It tastes like mud" and the lead guy running the whole thing said, "You've been very fortunate in the mud you've tasted".  :lol:

actually very on topic, they made a point to say most scotch peaks between 10-18yrs, beyond that its heading down hill and folks buying 25-30yr scotch are just buying it for show

Yeah, interesting.  This article had some good information about the various flavors that come from the different grains grown in the different regions and on islands in the area.  "You can taste the Orkney in this one" or "the Islay in that one" or whatever.  Scotch does nothing for me but the article was good.

Right.  I fired one off and then went for the Scotch article.  :lol:
