    Okay guys, another update. Since the vinegar treatment on my meter, it has been acting much
    better. Reading very accurately and calibrating properly. This morning I'm making a version of
    Jamil's Vienn...

    Wow, Matt.... good stuff. The only thing I can say is that when I take a small sample for the
    mash, I have a frozen metal cup I use to quickly lower the sample temp and I stir the mash like
    I'm gettin...

    I could certainly try that. Looks like I might be brewing on Wednesday this week. Very simple
    recipe... 9 lbs of Rahr Pale Ale malt, 4 ounces of C40 and 4 ounces of Special B. I'm going to

    Cylindrical cooler with an SS braid. No direct-fired ability so heating mash water on the
    stove, etc. I mentioned in my last post that I would add the acid and additions to the mash
    water before heati...

    One thought...Martin should confirm, but it might be possible to predict the mash liquor pH and
    alkalinity before mash in. I would suggest perhaps looking at the prediction with the recipe
    zero'd out ...

    Since we have the water pros subscribed I have to ask. Ken's water alkalinity is moderate
    (138ppm) but his pH is acidic (6.6). That is very unique to me and wonder if that could be a
    factor?I have oft...
