    As someone who hasn't spent any time dealing with chemistry, physics, of differential equations
    since sophomore yr in college, my meds gonna explode! Seriously guys, thanks for the detailed
    responses....

    Lactic acid is not going to impact flavor until you exceed about 1 ml of 88% acid per gallon of
    brewing water, so your 1.4 ml in 4.75 gal is way under the limit. In terms of flavor, all
    German beers h...

    I posted this thread in the All Grain forum but should have done it here in Brewing Science.
    Martin responded, but I thought I would point to the thread if anyone else wanted to chime in.
    Basically my...

    The sodium is a little high for some styles, but not a real problem. The alkalinity is likely
    to be a problem for almost every style. Neutralizing that with acid is your best bet. The rest
    of the ioni...

    Martin, was on my iPhone app last night and didn't want to fight it to write a lengthy post.
    But thanks for the insight. Water chem is new to me. I've never taken a pH of a mash, let alone
    add any kin...

    Been AG brewing (Denny Conn style, cooler tun, batch sparge) for maybe 4 years now. Over the
    past yr or more I've noticed my pale color hoppy beers being dominated by a flavor I couldn't
    figure out. D...

    I've had Sucks here and there over the past couple years. Only had one bomber of Enjoy By
    earlier this year. Very difference beasts. I tend not to be a big DIPA fan, as I often seem to
    get a sweetness...

    Been getting a foam problem that was only resolved when I finally cleaned my beer lines. At the
    time I used some BLC solution in an empty corny keg and gassed it up to push it through the
    line and fau...

  • Posted in thread: whats your mill gap setting (barley crusher) on 11-18-2013 at 05:16 PM
    I had to adjust it as it arrived a bit off (wider at one end). .038 is what I've used for my
    first few brews with it. I still hand crank as I've been too cheap to by the low-speed drill
    ($$ has gone i...
