  • Posted in thread: A Brewing Water Chemistry Primer on 03-15-2015 at 05:57 PM
    The Primer says to use 1 tsp (5 grams) CaCl2 per 5 gallons. I think that's a lot. Half that
    much makes more sense to me even though it puts Ca++ under 50 mg/L (but not by much). You
    apparently have di...

    I've been using more and more salts in my beers lately, and my beers have not been getting any
    better, basically getting worse. I got caught up in the vortex of water calculators and am glad
    I have fo...

    Roughly 0.9-1 volumes. Pure water at 16*C (60.8*F) can hold 0.985 volumes of CO2 ( and I'm
    finding estimates for solubility in beer ranging from approximately 0.95-1 volumes ( , and
    clowning aroun...

    Interesting, unless I miscalculated something that is actually 2 volumes... It makes sense that
    the cutoff for "still" allows for a little bit of carbonation, but I didn't expect it to be
    that high.0....

    Seeking some advice from professional cider makers.I've been reading over U.S. Code 5041 -
    Imposition and rate of tax, and I keep coming across "still wine shall not contain more than
    0.392 gram of ...

  • Posted in thread: Lack of bottle condition a result of low nutrient, lack of yeast or both? on 12-25-2014 at 08:30 PM
    I definitely know bottle bombs, so I've been checking a bottle every two days to gauge the
    level of carbonation to avoid that issue. I was just trying to get a light sparkle to liven
    things up a bit b...

    My cider has been in the bottle 10 days now and it doesn't seem to be showing signs of
    carbonation. And this is in contrast to a different cider project that was almost over
    carbonated in 4 days. But ...

  • Posted in thread: My hydrometer reads 1.000 at the meniscus, at 60*F using distilled water on 11-24-2014 at 05:58 PM
    Just got my brain in gear. If your hydrometer reads 1.000 by looking across the top of the
    meniscus, that is the calibration for that hydrometer. The hydrometer would always be read the
    same way for a...

    He is saying the the 1.000 is at the miniscus. So what most of us have been trained to
    interpret as about 1.002. I'll look closely at mine tonight.Exactly what I'm saying.

  • Posted in thread: My hydrometer reads 1.000 at the meniscus, at 60*F using distilled water on 11-24-2014 at 04:28 PM
    I've always read that using distilled water will give you the most accurate reading of 1.000 at
    60*F. But that reading had to be read below the meniscus where the liquid cuts across the stem
    of the hy...
