Posted in thread: What came in the mail for you today? on 03-03-2015 at 01:24 AM
A monthly calender from American Legion; two or three random junk mail pieces; catalog from
"The Glock Store"; and another junk mail advertisement. Why, what you get?

Usually run two+ months between brews, longest "dry" spell maybe 4 months. As to "why", well,
life's priorities can run beyond hobbies I 'spose.

A change of .25 oz here, five minutes later or two minutes sooner, .5 oz there... Most ANYTHING
remotely close to the original hops schedule or even a bit different will not be noticed by
most peeps. ...

[quote=ajdelange;6701503]Acrid taste is usually too much roast something. As he totals less
than 10% of the chocolate and roast barley he shouldn't have that acrid taste unless one or the
other of tho...

Just spotted your second post: the addition of the 5.3 mL lactic acid would supply 60 mEq of
the 74 potentially absorbed by the chalk addition. IOW, the two more or less cancel each other
out and mash...

5.25 gallons amberish red (or reddish amber) malt-fest with only enough hop bitterness to
offset any (hopeful) caramel sweetness.
