  • Posted in thread: Final PH of yeast starter. Infected? on 01-30-2016 at 09:14 PM
    Actually I was wrong, the starter turned out to be fine and not infected. I reached out to
    White Labs and also Wyeast with the same email expecting differing opinions. Turns out they
    replied with the ...

    I was wondering if maybe milk alternatives would work for something similar? Like vegan milk
    substitutes such as soy or almond milk?They're sweetened with cane sugar...so yes...no need for
    lactase obv...

    Assuming your meter was calibrated properly...probably lacto or similar, yeah

  • Posted in thread: Do you measure wort or air temperature during the diacetyl rest on 12-20-2015 at 11:28 AM
    I keep mine attached to the fermenter. I'm not sure what the point of using ambient is.

  • Posted in thread: protofloc problems on 12-20-2015 at 12:29 AM
    I'd never heard of them, Bob - when I googled it, what I read is that you add it to the boil,
    so I would think they would settle out completely during fermentation. Is that how you're using
    them?Afaic...

  • Posted in thread: How is PH effected by reverse osmosis? on 12-19-2015 at 08:29 PM
    You set your softener for 2 grains? Hmm...You mean you told the softener that your feedwater
    has 2 grains of hardness? That doesn't make sense. You wouldn't bother to soften your water if
    that was the...

    Ah but you're forgetting the end result that we are measuring: beer flavor :)It can be measured
    that those things DO unequivocally improve yeast health, but the experiments are designed to
    test whethe...

    I would hardly call anything Marshall does dangerous as he explicitly states his statistical
    significance and always reiterates the fact that a single experiment is always inconclusive.
    It's hard to i...

    I knew I saw the term "vitality starter" somewhere before. It wasn't on Marshall's Brulosophy
    site, which is actually a very nice source of information, I think it was actually in the Water
    book. Now ...

    Don't know about you, but I think it's pretty much the same amount of time and energy for me to
    make a 500 mL "vitality starter" (?) as a 2 L "full blown" starter. Also unclear how pitching a
    bunch of...
