Welcome to the homeBBBrew board!
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not a club, just a place to talk about making beer. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? If we can find a few others who have something similar then lets do it!

NO SPECIFIC REASON FOR THIS LINK...
I just really like the work levifunk is doing!

Can anybody point me to some information about brewing using a "stuykman" (if it is spelled like that?).

AFAIK it is a vessel used for brewing witbiers in Belgium in the old days.

I have tried to google it and have been through "Brewing with Wheat" without luck.

Re: stuykman
Out of curiosity, where did you come across the term?

Re: stuykman
If I understood it right, it's a kind of "basket" that is pressed down into the mash, allowing the liquid part (still cloudy/turbid) to seep into the inner side of the basket. Once the basket is full, liquid is removed from the basket by the use of a smaller bucket (or siphoning). The whole process is part of doing "turbid mashing". Do a search on turbid mashing to find out more, or check this one out for starters:

Check out "Wild brews" for more info. It is used in turbid mashing for lambic brewing. Hope you have a good wicker chair to make a basket out of! :)

Re: stuykman
I never understood why doing it this way would be give you different results from just drawing some of the wort out through the bottom through the manifold or false bottom. That is what I did for my first turbid mash and it seemed to work fine.
