Posted in thread: Gravity readings and losing CO2? on 05-15-2016 at 11:57 PM
I've never worried about oxidation during gravity tests, and for a couple of reasons. First,
there is CO2 present in the beer as a result of fermentation... it rises and maintains a layer
over the bee...

for note taking etc.It's an uber light version of the PC version. I bought it, played with it a
bit, then ...

You'll need to plug your recipe into a calculator to make that determination. If you are not
using a software, like BeerSmith, look at John Palmer's book, "How to Brew". He includes the

Posted in thread: A Multi-Rest Mash Somewhat Pointless? on 05-01-2016 at 02:57 AM
I had a similar experience with my multi-rest experiments. The higher multi-step mash rests are
good... the 143*f - 145*f as JimRausch says are worthwhile for dryer beers. I'll do a 10 minute
rest at ...

I've just started SMaSH brewing... but I've been brewing for 5 years, developing my own recipes
for 4. I've moved from infusion mash to temperature mashing, and I've done 1, 2, 2.5, 3.5 and 5

So what I think you're saying is, the measured Original Gravity of your IPA was 1.070, and the

give you a sense...
