Crispness...the pH of the finished beer may be too high. I've gone down the mash pH/water
chemistry rabbit hole over the past few brews and have noticed a big difference in the final
product. I've bee...

I've never used more than 3-4% Carapils in a recipe myself. Is this a new recipe or have you

On my 20L, I typically get absorption of roughly 1 litre per kilogram of malt. Yet, I only let

I usually do a simple mash [20mins @ 50C, 60mins @ 65C, and 15 mins @ 77] for the ales that I
brew and find it works just fine for a good body that isn't too heavy. I like ales to be on the

Go with the oxygen system. 60 seconds for a typical gravity ale will yield a great
fermentation. I noticed a significant improvement after I bought mine. As long as you're
