Posted in thread: Hi Nelson! Nelson Hopped Saison w/Hibiscus on 01-28-2016 at 12:11 AM

How are you getting those numbers? Bru'n Water does not use teaspoons. How did you convert
teaspoon values to mass values? I'd have to say that you aren't using the sheet correctly.I
used an online co...

I brewed this recipe a few days ago. I didn't think much about the mistake on the amount of

debating on dry ho...

I am mashing and batch sparging with 100% RO water.I see the recommendation to skip acidulated

You can mash those grains with 1-2 pounds of two-row, no problem. You'll have plenty of
diastatic power for conversion.As far as mash pH, the alkalinity of the water has the biggest
