@ajdelange - have been looking at this, and wondering if there is a documented and
standardized congress-like mash for measuring extract from a given mill setup. This would
potentially give me extra...

I can do that AJ... planning another 100% batch soon, this time twisted toward a Belgian
Strong.Is that 100 g in 0.5 L distilled? That was the volume I used last time. I am still
trying to figure out ...

100% RedX mash with RO water should come in around 5.3 pH without adjustment, at 1.5 qt/pound.
My DI test mash before I brewed put it right at 5.29 pH. I used the DI to calibrate to the 15L

I get good results with RedX closer to 15L in Bru'n Water.

Yeah, that makes sense. Set BWS to 0 sparge water volume. Even if the water is in two vessels,
the circulation will blend the ion content. I would add it when the liquor is cold and then
heat it up.

Posted in thread: How to lower the PH of wort to 4.5 Pre-Fermentation on 07-21-2015 at 07:57 PM
I am more concerned with being able to move the wort PH down to 4.5 while in the fermenter
before I pitch lacto. This may be a very newb question but does the grain bill play a roll with
the wort PH ...

Adjusting into the fermenter would most likely require you to get the entire wort into your
desired pitching temperature range and pulling a liter. Dose that liter carefully with 1 ml of
lactic acid a...
