  • Posted in thread: I never calculate mash/sparge water volumes but I think I should on 08-02-2016 at 07:03 PM
    You could try the following steps to get in the ballpark with volumes:1) Determine desired
    pre-boil volume based (mostly) on evaporation during boiling. Let's say 6.5G for a typical 5G
    batch.2) Determ...

    Despite Sean Lawsons recommendation to use the clean fermenting American ale yeast listed
    earlier in this thread, would you guys recommend using the Vermont/Conan?Use whichever you'd
    like. I've always...

    Gordon Strong judged one of my entries and said he would pay money for it. I nearly cried.

    Please approximately define "ridiculous gypsum addition" in regards to a 5 or 10 gallon
    batch...I am curious. Understand starting water chemistry would affect this number so assume RO
    water. Also curi...

    Hmm, yes, OK, I am thinking like a no-sparge full-volume BIAB'er. I can see what you're saying
    about adding 1/2 your final volume as untreated sparge water, and that therefore there must be
    some sulfa...

    Interesting thread necro here. Surprised I haven't seen this thread before.If you look at the
    conversation in posts ~42-50, it looks like g-star is adding enough gypsum to get calcium
    levels around 30...

    Wow, you couldn't do much better with RO water!

    Thanks! Maybe I will meet in the middle and use 4 oz just so I can feel better :mug:So this
    topic is surely the subject of many other posts but I have to say that because of the whirlpool
    additions, t...

    What did you ferment at?50F for the bulk of primary, gradually raising to ambient (66-68F) to
    complete primary and eliminate any diacetyl.

    SoS is my buddy's favorite beer and I will be brewing this on Saturday with him. I have had the
    pleasure of having it once years ago from a trade. I know the OP used a water profile best
    suited for hi...
