    4 hours max. I brew 1-gallon all-grain BIAB batches.

    I'm thinking about re-brewing the exact same recipe but with my own water profile so that I can
    compare the two beers. I attached some screen captures of BrewersFriend water calcs. I'm
    starting with 3...

    Does anybody have any suggestions for good Mead making books? I did a quick Amazon search and
    there was a lot to pick from.

    No. There are reactions which happen during the mash which only happen once which affect the
    pH. When adjusting mash pH, you need to dough in, get your temp on target then leave everything
    for 5 minut...

    If I treat all of my brew water before I divide it into the mash and sparge pots will the pH be
    the same during both the mash and sparge?

    I have had this same off flavor in all my lighter beers! I do BIAB/no sparge so I don't think
    tannins or sparge temp are your problem. It could be a mineral addition or pH issue. I usually
    do 50/50 RO...

    Thanks everybody. I'm going to rebrew the exact same recipe with a water profile made from
    distilled water. Then taste the two beers side by side.

    I use grocery store spring water in 1 gallon jugs. I have not gotten into checking the mash pH
    but perhaps i should.

    Can you elaborate on why the pH is higher? Wouldn't the pH be the same during the mash/sparge
    since the ratios of grain/water are the same despite batch size?
