Posted in thread: Mash pH reading on 01-17-2014 at 05:16 PM
Has anyone checked ph at 1-2 minutes then rechecked at 15-30 minutes? It doesn't make sense to
check it at 15-30 minutes when most conversion is finished by then. I set mine after dough in

I check the mash 15 min and when I start the lauder. I also measure the last runnings and
pre-boil pH.Also be sure you cool the sample down to room temperature.
Posted in thread: Bottle conditioning lagers. How to calculate priming sugar? on 01-14-2014 at 04:28 PM
That is what I did with my lagers...bring them up to room temp and then bottle. I always had
proper carbonation that way.I would also add 1/4 of a packet of dry yeast at bottling time. I
don't know if...

After another 30 minutes of settling it's pouring a bit more slowly, but I got a good pour at

I'd wait 24 hours to let the keg settle and come to temperature.Also are your beer lines

Reading your thread title, I was going to suggest some type of protein film. But your pictures
look more like the start of an infection.Since you boiled the wort, what ever it was is long
gone. And it...

I second the others who said to use simpler recipes. If you like stouts and porters, I would
start there. In my experience, a relatively low gravity beer with at least a little roastiness
is the easie...

Tasted my first bottle of this yesterday, and it came out fantastic. This is by far the best
IPA I have brewed. I'm going to have to try to find some Two Hearted to compare.I used WLP051
yeast. My OG ...
