Posted in thread: How do YOU convert BRIX to SG on 06-12-2013 at 11:47 PM
This calculator is as good as any for estimating. use it, and while it may not be 100%
accurate, I care more about how my beer tastes then what the FG or ABV is.

yep and to get that ph back into somewhat normal range you would be using way to many salts to
even get close.I'm not sure what you mean by this? pH of the source water doesn't make any
Posted in thread: filtered water undrinkable after mineral addition. on 05-31-2013 at 08:54 PM
pH isn't really relevent when you are talking about water that has virtually no minerals in it.
The pH meter used to do the testing probably isn't capable of making an accurate measurement in

To be honest, I can't say for sure, but knowing what PH does to a mash, it could be possible.
By the way, wasn't trying to step on your comment. Just adding my thoughts.I agree 100%. If
your pH is far...
Posted in thread: What is your BEST Batch Sparge Efficiency's? on 08-31-2011 at 02:23 PM
The maximum eff. you can get batch sparging is pretty easy to calculate. It is straight forward
math.Here are the equations: have broke 90% many times on beers smaller than 1.050. I am

I'm using a march 809 food grade pump. Most big homebrew shops have them. I think I bought mine
from northern brewer.

This really isn't any different than doing a no-sparge. This is what I do on my RIMS system
with just one cooler and one boil kettle. I've been doing it this way for a couple years. On a
mid size 1.05...

First, I don't think your bazooka screen is ideal for fly sparging. If you're going to fly
sparge, you may want to consider a false bottom.Secondly, instead of checking your gravity of
the runnings wh...

Yes, but the original poster said he boiled the extra volume off. After the boil, there was no
extra volume, only the extra sugar.
Posted in thread: Help me figure out what went wrong re: efficiency on 08-19-2011 at 10:50 PM
Celtic is correct. The last gallon pulled @ between 1.024 -1.012 gravity brought the total
volume gravity points down. No that is not correct. If you sparge longer you get more sugar in
your kettle an...
