What were you going for with the lower temperature steps in the mash?

Re: Lockdown number 3

Excellent! Can’t beat a user-upper! Sounds like it’ll be a winner [emoji1303][emoji482] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I do hope so. I will be disappointed if it doesn't pack a hoppy punch. It seems to be coming toward the end of the violent fermentation now. A couple of releases of gas through...

Question: BB Code is off and I can’t post attachments, is that because I have only just re-registered?

Lockdown number 3

I decided to revisit an old recipe yesterday to get my stocks up. Boiled the carbonates out of the water the night before. Went from 230ppm down to 38ppm as CaCO3. First time doing this, and something I will be doing again. Prepped the malt and the hop mix also. The most stressful part of the actual...

Re: Wherry tweaking

I would go with dry hopping. Sometimes tea can pull out a bit of astringency or add more bitterness. Dry hopping might cover over, what I sometimes find a sweet malty aroma associated with muntons kits. However its probably about ten years since I tasted a wherry kit. Sugars? Maybe. But just think o...

Re: Strange pH readings in mash

Hence often on a lot of brewing software, an all pale recipe will need to be of a negative alkalinity to drop the pH low enough to compensate for a rise in pH.

Re: Strange pH readings in mash

The mash will naturally gravitate to a pH dependant on its variety of malts. This also takes in to account mash thickness, available calcuim and original alkalinity. Great information on it http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php/Beer_color,_alkalinity_and_mash_pH From what i have read, it is not abnor...

Brewlabs is up that way isn't it? Or have they stopped doing the home brew thing?

Re: AMS - 6 month 'use by date'

Alkalinity test before.

Use acid that was bought years ago and has sat in the shed.

Alkalinity test after.

Double thumbs up, brew on.
