  • Posted in thread: Saison: Keg or bottle age? on 12-20-2014 at 03:19 PM
    My first attempt at a Saison is going well so far. Successfully managed to get good attenuation
    with WLP565 (gravity = 1.005 after 7 days in the primary; Jamil's BCS recipe). I'm looking for
    advice on...

    It seems pretty clear that something is amiss with my measurements. That I accept. And thanks
    for the info about measurement & calibration -- I'll check the sticky. Not to belabor the point
    (although ...

    Now you've got me worried about the meter, even though I was quite careful with the calibration
    and re-confirmed with pH 4 and 7 buffers after the mash was done. Does it matter whether there
    are bits ...

    I did in fact keep the meter in the pH 4 buffer solution in between readings (with a quick
    swish in RO water before taking the mash readings). I use the little sachet buffer packets,
    which were opened...

    Well, I did wait 10 minutes before the initial pH reading, and about 5 minutes after the lactic
    acid addition. I stirred, but my arm was still pretty well attached! I stirred again before
    taking the s...

    Yep. Calibrated with pH 4 and 7 buffers, the same day.

    I'm trying to get a handle on water adjustments and pH control when using RO water as a
    starting point. The RO water I used gave TDS = 1 with my meter, so it seems quite good. A
    recent batch of Americ...

    I didn't realize that TDS meters are so cheap. That's a small investment worth making. Thanks
    for the help!

    It looks like the WalMart RO water is the culprit. I made up some mini-mash batches with 100
    grams of grain, of the same composition as the big batch, in an insulated coffee mug, and
    checked the pH. W...

    [quote=mabrungard;3607234]Where is your RO water from? Are you sure its actually RO water that
    is relatively free from ions and the total dissolved solids (TDS) are low (like
