    Are you using a RIMS/HERMS or a static mash? If the latter, I would encourage you to fully
    dissolve the lime in a small amount of DI water first before adding, and a thorough mix.It's
    HERMS and yes, I...

    I think I have it figured out, we'll see how it works tomorrow. The main mash minus the roast
    malts will be sitting at target 5.5 pH for 60 min. Then the roasts will be added along with
    pickling lime ...

    Yes, the mash is essentially done at the point and you are steeping the roast malt in the
    mash/sparge. I would rather eliminate the need for extra steeping pots, but you can certainly
    do it that way t...

    Thanks Matt - yep, I'm going for Gordon's technique so perhaps I'll limit the exposure to the
    last 15 minutes. Sparge water is RO so that should be fine. I'm shooting for a higher
    percentage of roast ...

    I am brewing a RIS and plan to try the technique of late mash additions of the roast malts to
    reduce potential astringency. The roast malts (roasted/choc/black) make up 11.5% of the overall
    grain bill...

    I attempted to make a starter from the dregs of two bottles of Blaugies Saison D'Epeautre and
    it doesn't look quite right to me. began with the dregs from one bottle on the stirplate in a

    I didn't like the idea of the chiller resting on the element, so I fashioned a kettle hook out
    of some scrap copper tubing. Worked great.
