That's an interesting way of doing it. Never crossed my mind to do it like that.

Re: Overnight Mashing

Phil,

Cheers. That does put my mind at rest over a few issues. Especially tannin extraction (for haze issues) and over fermentability.

Re: Overnight Mashing

Cheers John.

Oh dear Dennis, I take it you don't have a false bottom/BIAB. Worth knowing that the mash compacts that much.

Overnight Mashing

Does anyone have any bad experiences of overnight mashing/long mashes?

Things usually quoted are a low fg, thin beer, no head, fizzyness and mash infections/sourness. Has anyone had problems first hand.

Also good to hear from those that use this. What are your timings, temperatures and method.

Re: length of mash?

Touchstone, do you ever find you get a low fg, thin beer, no head, fizzyness, which are the common concerns?

Re: Different pH estimates with different calculators

What is the ideal pH for the break? Or is it the range of the fall which encourages it?

Re: AG#4 BIAB Speckled hen Clone

Apparently, ferments down similar to the ratio of malt extract. That percentage of left behind unfermentable products must give some taste/body/mouthfeel.

Hopefully somebody will be along to say I am wrong.

I always thought it fermented down to near sugar levels.

Hows SA?

Re: Hiatus IPA (AKA Leedsbrew's return) + some PICS

Good to see you back brewing again. What was the reason for the big break? Just interested in what are the most common impacts on hobbies/brewing.

Re: Rye Hoppy Ale

Two weeks in and I had a sniff. Hoppy, very hoppy. Hmmmm.....

What the hell in went 50g of dry hops. I predict hazes!

Dropped the temperature down to 17C.

Thanks for the reply. What a weird system (but workable).
