Posted in thread: Taking PH readings. on 01-16-2017 at 05:58 PM
I've never adjusted my mash pH based on my readings-I use the data to correct future batches.
If it is way too high, I might acidify the sparge a bit more to correct for kettle pH

I have a microscope and yeast cell counting software on my wish list to more accurately know
how many cells I have. Of course, for now, it's guess work. As far as this last starter, all I

acid) to k...

Ok, after I've zeroed out my alkalinity, I'll tell the software it's zero, do I also tell it
the pH is 5.4 (or whatever I'm shooting for)?
