    What are your water additions like for your RO water? I don't know if the science would back me

    from RO and ...

    After a few uses I too am realizing I have to recirculate to cool. I put a valve on my water
    out and I need another one on my wort out and I should be set. Last time I used it I cooled 6

    I used a dishwasher elbow on my chiller .... a little teflon tape on the threads and no leaks:

  • Posted in thread: pilsner & carapils recipe. what you think? on 09-05-2014 at 12:00 AM
    Oats can give a slight slick/silky mouthfeel. I find wheat to have body without that slick
    feeling. It's probably pretty subtle. I often put a bit of wheat in my ipa's and pale ales. Was
    just throwing...

    It probably would be flagged by a home inspector if you try to sell your house.I wouldn't mess

    is this guy. But its more likely about the water chemistry/yeast health when using very soft
    water, than meladonin production. And it certainly isnt a double blind experiment.My experiment

    Agree with Omahawk, go for the d-rest now. Also consider doing a forced diacetyl test prior to
    starting your lagering. Warm a covered sample up to 150 and smell it. If there is any diacetyl
