  • Posted in thread: Adding Vanilla bean at bottling on 11-18-2013 at 06:03 PM
    Did a porter with oak and vanilla. Added the beans (split down the length) into a tertiary for
    2 weeks after a secondary with oak for 2 weeks. Been in bottles since July so I don't know if
    it worked o...

    I'd go with .5 oz of the Columbus at 60min. Then .5oz of each Cascade and Citra (so total of 1
    ounce) at 20/15/10/5/0 with 3oz of Simcoe for 7 days in a dry hop. I have made an IPA with a
    similar grai...

    Thank you for all the help!

    Dave, Carmel does ion-exchange softening of it's water supply also. The sodium would reflect
    that. However, both calcium and magnesium are effectively removed in the ion-exchange process,
    so I expect ...

    mabrungard is the water expert, so he'll have to answer the question about the amount of
    magnesium for sure. I use RO water, and don't add epsom salts ever, but that doesn't mean it's
    always right! I ...

    From my understanding, the water utility in Bargersville attempts to soften the water. My guess
    is that the sodium is a residual from that process. I would think the low calcium might be an
    indicator ...

    Nevermind... I'm going to use RO water from Walmart and add gypsum, calcium chloride, magnesium
    sulfate and lactic acid. The EZ water spreadsheet is awesome!

    I don't have the entire profile, yet. I have emailed the local utility and this is what I have
    so far...Soduim 116Calcium 43Magnesium 100+Alk 224PH 8.0I know I can change the PH, but the Mag
    level is ...

    The stainless steel teaball kept all the hops inside and only received a minuscule amount of
    hop debris in my first two pints from the keg, the rest was clear. When I finally finished the
    keg and clea...

    I'm planning on giving this a shot, but I have a quick question about it...If you chill to
    180ish and then do your hop stand does that negatively affect the formation of cold break
    and/or beer clarity...
