    under-pitched but that is not likely the cause of your issue. Secondly, in my experience, that
    is a fairly typical ...

    Leave the seeds and membranes (where the heat actually lives) out this time. Remember - you can
    always add more heat later if its not hot enough, but once its in there...

  • Posted in thread: Help figuring out ABV. on 02-21-2014 at 02:17 AM
    My understanding is that the formula uses the degree of discrepancy that the alcohol causes
    between the two readings to actually figure out the OG and ABV. So not really an estimation.
    Every time I've...

    If you have a refractometer and a hydrometer, you can measure the SG and the brix value of the

  • Posted in thread: Adding yeast during 2nd fermentation on 02-06-2014 at 02:00 AM

    which have s...

    Good idea, I've done lots of those types of experiments, really helps you to get to know
    ingredients and what they bring to your beer.I'd start by trying yeasts that you think you will
    use a lot, so m...

    I think you were definitely right to add them - Yes, the calcium will help the yeast but you
    will also get the chloride:sulphate ratio which you were targeting in the finished beer
