    Well I'm not going nuts then! I expected the buffering ability of this grist to be similar to
    other light grain mashes I've done in the past... More testing is required! Thanks for the
    input.Kal

    Finally gonna fire this sucker up in the morning!! Going to brew a fairly simple Pale Ale to
    get a feel for the system and get an idea of the brewhouse efficiency before getting too
    complicated.Excell...

    Ooops - grabbed the wrong link: I'll give it a read.You should be seeing a change of around
    0.1 pH for that much acid addition (assuming the assumptions about volume and grain weight are
    approximatel...

    Thanks for the feedback. The pH meter I use is the

    To answer my own question: I would guess that the buffering of the flaked wheat was keeping the
    pH constant, 'overriding' the buffering of the wheat.I knew that the unmalted wheat flakes
    needed to be ...

    This one's a head scratcher, but then I've never professed to be a chemistry expert: ;)I'm
    brewing a Belgian Wit today (recipe from Jamil's Brewing Classic Styles, online ) with the
    following grist:46...

    I have an old computer cpu, think 4", fan that I might hook up as well since it just collects
    dust. Would I need a 220 to 12v transformer to hook that up?Depends on what the fan requires.
    Check the fa...

    Cool thanks for the info... I plan on doing a super simple build (one 5500, pid, no pumps, no
    extras) so that might be way way overkill?For a single SSR, yes. I would still recommend
    putting the heat ...

    Thanks, can I mount it to the back or top of the box then cut a hole big enough for the ssr to
    stick though and connect it that way? I'm assuming a bigger heat sink is better?Correct on all
    accounts.I...

    A heat sink is required on any and all SSRs.Some people put them inside their (sealed) control
    panels. I prefer to have them outside so that they can release the heat and not cook everything
    in the pa...
