    the same time. It's not new, but not exactly common. I use this concept in my 2-vessel
    no-sparge eHERMS. ...

  • Posted in thread: Questions about taking PH Readings for the first time and other questions about water on 11-20-2016 at 09:42 PM
    s it ok to add small mineral additions to the mash or just before the boil if needed? If so,
    what are the small increments one typically uses to raise or lower the PH level (grams, ml,
    etc...)? I figu...

    Overall, it would not upset me to see the ratio fall out of use.I imagine you could help that

  • Posted in thread: Help with Mash Recirculation on 11-02-2016 at 04:08 PM
    I should have added in that I aim it slightly downwards, so it keeps everything in suspension
    and moving. Prior to recirc, at grain-in, I stir the mash like it owes me money to avoid
    doughballs.But no...

    I'm sure I missed it in the other big thread, but can you share the pressure rating you are

    Are you set on glycol? I tend to over-engineer just about everything, but for this I'm very
    happy pumping ice water from a 5-gal bucket.I tend to get about 10* drop per bag of ice per 11
    gallons. If m...

  • Posted in thread: RO water ppm rising on 09-09-2016 at 01:11 PM
    That is pretty mysterious. I collect water a day in advance and take a TDS reading on brew day

    notice. Still...
