  • Posted in thread: Who's using Iodophor as their sanitizer? on 06-15-2015 at 01:08 PM
    I mix iodophor with ro water and get a little better foaming and it seems to hold it's color
    longer than tap water. Use Iodophor at recommended no-rinse level for everything and keep a
    spray bottle of...

  • Posted in thread: "Numb Tongue Brewery" my 1 Barrel Home Brewery on 06-12-2015 at 01:33 PM
    I mash in a keg and use a stirrator/mash mixer running constantly. Here's a link to the BT
    article about constant mash mixing; I built the mixer for the same reason, no temp
    stratification and the a...

    I use a Briskheat brand silicone heating band on my keggle MT. It's 8" x 42" ,1KW @240vac. Cost
    was around $150. Works great for maintaining mash & fly sparge temps. Stays within 1dgf of
    target temp. ...

  • Posted in thread: Adding minerals to R.O. water: does the order matter? on 03-19-2015 at 10:08 PM
    My well water isn't suitable for brewing almost any style, Ca>110ppm, Mg>35, HCO3>450, TA>350.
    So I start collecting enough RO the day prior to brewing, most times around 20 gallons. I
    mash-in with a ...

    I use Bru'nWater and consistently hit my target mash pH so I'm assuming I have enough mixing
    going on with my stirrator setup. Is that a reasonable conclusion? It's doable, but would be
    painful to cha...

    I underlet my mash tun with untreated RO water with a continuously running stirrator. I pull a
    small amount of wort and add the salts returning the mixture to the MT asap. Is my practice
    compromising ...

    made with RO water.

    I asked about adding sauermalz because I use RO and haven't needed to add any when brewing
    bitters or pale ales based on ph readings with a claibrated meter.

  • Posted in thread: When is RA too low? on 02-19-2012 at 02:16 PM
    If I've followed this correctly the OP is advised to add 13 grams of CaCl & CaSO4 and sauermalz
    to 13 gallons RO water. It seems to me with RO water the sauemalz could push the pH too low...
