    Got my water profile from Ward Labs. Got my PH and lactic acid additions nailed down. I've used
    gypsum for my heavy IPA's butQuestion, when I'm shooting for a balanced water profile for
    example a Wit ...

    You're right, those test strips are crap.... thanks for all the help guys.

    All mash pH adjustments should be preplanned and made with acid in the strike water at the
    outset. Making pH adjustments on the fly during a mash is not possible to do with any level of
    accuracy as on...

    Doing AG BIAB, wanting to adjust my mash PH but reading around can't find a definite answer. I

    Tasting notes: Beer is a little young, cracked open at 1 week. Amazing, despite my problems I

    Not trying to hijack this thread but I wanted to post my similar experience for some opinions.I
    also recently did a 5 gallon BIAB, my first AG, and had some issues with mash temps. From this
    thread an...

  • Posted in thread: How many batches have you ruined and how?? on 09-21-2011 at 04:17 PM
    Figured I'd chime in since I officially just lost my first 5 gal batch. Did an "Old Speckled
    Hen" clone. It was in the secondary already, clearing to a nice reddish brown as it should be.
    I wasn't abl...

    Much agreed, I just started brewing again after 6 years. It was far cheaper then, but still
