    Thanks for the feedback. I think I know what I did now. It was simple PA that shouldn't bee too
    acidic. I've looked at our water and it should be good for most beers except pilsners. I
    actually took t...

    So, I have been trying to figure out an efficiency problem and have a question about pH. My
    local water pH is around 9.5 and when I checked my pH with an electric meter I bought, it was
    4.2 in the mas...

    That's a good thought. Will do.

    I tested my hydrometer against some distilled water and it looks to be .004 off. This still
    doesn't account for the drastic changes I've had but it seems to put it in the range of mild
    problems rather...

    I did continuous sparge for about 60 min and have for years. The only things that have changed
    recently are the water(but I had a few batches without efficiency problems after that), my pot,
    and my hy...

    Any thoughts on a refractometer? Are they more accurate? It'd be nice to just take the error of
    the gravity out of the equation. If they are better, they are only $25 so it would be worth it.

    Well, the plot keeps getting thicker here. I checked my gravity of my tripel, which had a low
    SG off by about 10 pts and it's gravity now is 1.002. This actually calculates an expected
    alcohol %. Now ...

  • Posted in thread: Tripel question on 06-02-2014 at 07:58 PM
    Update. It's been a week and I checked the gravity, which is way low at 1.002. I have another
    issue I've been working out so for more on that see my "trouble figuring out low efficiency
    thread". Long ...

    I've checked the temp and it is correct. I get my grains crushed at the homebrew store and I
    have gone to the same place all but once. I generally do a pre boil, which is also low. I
    haven't checked t...

    OK this is going to be a long one. I've been brewing for 5-6 years now and consider myself a
    good brewer, but obviously no expert. I went through a phase where I didn't even check my
    gravities, I just...
