    Sorry, I always forget to check my threads. A lot of people use the EMD 4.0-7.0 strips, but
    they're not cheap anywhere. I found some Whatman 4.0-7.0 paper on Amazon ( but I haven't tried
    it yet for m...

    I only have those cheapass strips and not a real PH meter so I don't have solid data, but based
    on color of strips it seems to be between the 5.0 and 5.4 color, which I think is right where
    it's suppo...

    There are a lot of garbage pH strips. What company are they from?

    my lungs were going to explode.

    Depending on how often you brew, I think people use camper water filters to prepare cheap
    filtered water. Those flavors sound like chlorine and organic compounds that a big carbon
    filter would remove.

  • Posted in thread: Mash PH best practices on 11-09-2013 at 06:54 AM
    As far as I can tell, the mash ph is mostly important for conversion and preventing tannin
    extraction. You can be above optimal ph without much negative effect on the wort
    production.What is important...

    I've noticed the same thing with my post boil wort. It's really harshly bitter and awful
    tasting and then after primary everything is fine.My guess is that the more harsh hop compounds
    (along with a d...

    You can easily fit a carboy in it without modification. You can not however fit a bucket in it
    without the door being slightly ajar. I've lagered in in this kegerator several times.
