  • Posted in thread: Any reason to add lactic acid at this point? on 04-06-2016 at 04:06 PM
    To confirm, yes, my intent in adding lactic to my mash/sparge water was to establish good mash
    pH. That ship has sailed so the reason for my question was to determine what, if any, benefit
    there would...

    Thanks for the replies. I'll do a bench trial to see what adding lactic does to the flavor.

    I blew it. I forgot to add 2.5 ml lactic to my brew water. Now the beer (a Mirror Pond clone)
    is being dry hopped and will be kegged in about 4 days. My target pH was 5.45 (room temp) and
    my spreadshe...

    Odd, I've never experienced that sort of variance between readings, and my line also is pretty
    sharp, maybe 0.05 Brix wide. The only exception is when I take readings in the middle of a wine
    ferment, ...

    Here's another way to think about it: what are you really trying to determine when taking a FG
    reading?Are you just trying to determine if fermentation is done? If so, then either tool will
    work since...

    I've been using a cheap refractometer for about 6 years now, for both brewing and winemaking,
    and I absolutely love it.You'll hear comments about how refractometers shouldn't be used after
    fermentatio...

    That's very interesting. If you continue to keep records of this sort of activity, I know I,
    for one, would like to hear the results.Just another data point. I'm on Day 10 of a Moose Drool
    clone using...

    Viability is how many yeast are alive. Vitality is how healthy they are and how well they can
    handle fermentation.

    My starter spent 24 hrs on a stir plate, I cold crashed for 2 days, then I decanted and pitched
    once it reached the same temp as my wort.And right, I'm talking about vitality, not viability.
    I assume ...

    I've puzzled over this for years and haven't come up with anything definitive.On 1/8/2016 I
    brewed an amber ale, OG 1.057, fermented at 67F. I made a 1L starter from a pouch of 3-wk-old
    1272 and the b...
