    Bleach kills but because its alkaline ( rather than acidic) it takes a longer contact time. In
    my lab we assume sanitation after 10min ( starsan is like 3min)

    1) I wouldn't suggest ingesting PBW, don't put it in your beer2) A couple of ounces of Star San
    is no big deal for a 5 gallon batch. The acid breaks down in to phosphates in the wort, which
    will actua...

    I like using wine coolers for my ferm chambers. You can usually find them without a compressor
    hump which I love. There are a couple of cheap Avanti options out there, their 28 bottle one

    Boil a cup of water, cool it a little down to like 180F, then toss in as many marshmellows as
    will dissolve. Ive done it with jolly ranchers in a wheat badddd effect. But I think
    that had mo...

    I just did a starch test and it is negative! SIDEBAR:From what i recall the iodine test to
    check for starch conversion to sugar can be a little misleading. The reason it comes out
    positive is that the...

    It does also depend on the yeast strain. I've noticed my weizen yeast are crapped out after a

    I use EZ personally, but all the software calculates the acidic contribution of kilned malts
    slightly different so any numbers they come out with are only estimates

    Calcium = 11I'm assuming you're missing a 0 here, 110 is right in the middle for Ca so that's
    good. Mg2+ levels being low could have an impact on the health of the yeast over the course of
    several gen...
