Posted in thread: Titration with 88% Lactic to Calculate Alkalinity? on 06-27-2015 at 11:07 PM
I recently ran a few titrations on my tap water to bring the pH to 5.5 as indicated by Sierra
Nevada et al. I like the ease and repeatability of this method for treating brewing liquor and,
for the fe...

Brewed this up about 5 wks ago following the recipe exactly. After only 2 wks at lagering temps
in the kegerator, this beer is drinking beautifully. Excellent recipe, wouldn't change a thing.

Yeah, I would go with what the website says. I've only been there once and just filled two
growlers and purchased 3 bottles. Enjoy the trip!

Fiddlehead and Hill Farmstead are best visited on weekdays. Fiddlehead has an awesome pizzeria
attached (Folino's). Expect lines at Hill Farmstead on weekends. Don't bother with the
Alchemist as their...

I'd be willing to trade fresh Heady (culture your own Conan) for Fat Head's Head Hunter if you
can get it. PM if interested.

Awesome hop combo. My house AIPA uses those two exclusively (well, a bit of Columbus for
bittering). Good enough to nab a 39 at the NHC this year. Do it!

You are spot on WRT the process for determining alkalinity but note that the end point pH
depends on the ISO if you are using their procedure or your choice if you are using AWWA's. IOW
it doesn't mat...

In doing some research online, it looks like alkalinity can be determined by titration with any
strong acid. However, being a water chemistry novice I'm having difficulty in determining the
