  • Posted in thread: Tiber's Perfect Kölsch on 08-16-2015 at 04:29 PM
    Tiber,What mash pH range would you suggest for a single infusion mash? I've had some success in
    the mid 5.2 range, but was recently looking at Eric Warner's Kolsch book and he suggests a mash
    pH of 5....

  • Posted in thread: 1560 GPH too much for a 3/8" x 25' IC? on 07-15-2015 at 07:13 PM
    I'm having trouble getting down to pitch temp and am thinking of adding a submersible pump and
    ice bath setup to get my wort down to my desired pitch temp.I know I won't be achieving a 1560
    flow rate ...

  • Posted in thread: Final RPM (at grinding drum) for motorized Weston apple grinder? on 05-15-2015 at 05:47 PM
    I was planning on doing the same thing, I have read of a few people doing it and if my memory
    is close its like 750rpm. WVMJThat seems awfully fast to me. However, Claude Jolicoeur in The
    New Cider Ma...

    Decided to motorize my apple grinder for the upcoming season, but I'm not sure what to make the
    final RPM at the grinding drum. I was thinking about gearing it for an RPM of around 180.
    Anyone have an...

    the reason for using ta is to measure the acid that you taste (obviously). the main benefit in
    measuring ta for cidermaking is so you can build up a level of knowledge about what makes a
    good cider, a...

    With apple juice being so clear is there some reason a simple titration with phenothalien
    doesnt appeal to you as its easier, the color transition is easy to see in cider vs like a red
    wine, all the e...

    I don't follow this at all. If he has TA of 5 g/L and wants 7 g/L then he simply adds 2 g/L
    malic and he's done. Then there is taste which is what this is really all about. Doesn't malic
    taste more, w...

    Ajdelange,Thank you for the information. Your thoughts put a bunch of questions to rest I had
    about this process. I'm sure it's going to take some trial and error on my part to understand
    the process,...

    That's for wine which isn't a problem except that the result is expressed 'as tartaric' which
    isn't much of a problem at all. Tartaric acid is also diprotic with pK's such that it is
    completely dissoc...

    I'm planning on doing some presses of single varietal, heirloom apples this fall and would like
    to measure and adjust the TA where necessary.Been doing a lot of searches on TA testing and
    coming up wi...
