  • I started making my own beer about two (2) years ago. Wall Street hit us hard, and I wanna keep on drinking beer. With the knowledge of my girlfriend, I started making my own. I really regret that all this time I have been drinking mass-produced beer. Better late than never. I have a strong scientific background, I am applying rocket science to beer making. I believe that there is a lot of room for optimizing the process.
  • My plan is to keep on gathering data and optimized my home brewing. I will make my own recipes and maybe set up my own mini-brewery with some PLC and automatic controls. Then I may move further, but right now I want to concentrate on knowing all aspects of beer making.
  • 1/2 grain, 1/2 extract wheat beer

  • I have bottled a number of pre-packaged kits. Now, I have a couple of my own extract recipes that I really enjoy.

    Thanks.I did a mash that produced a wort with an OG: 1.058, yet my target was 1.053. I did the
    calculation and needed 2 gallons of water. I added first 2L and got the desired OG. Maybe I am
    missing so...

    Bosh, it is true what you said about the IBU, as the relationship is not directly proportional.
    One may add the amount of hops for (to say) 10.5 gallons to a volume of 7 gallons with a scrap
    factor fo...

    The equation appears to work based on the more basic calculations. Long way to get the same
    value. Thanks, Nil :)

    Can you let me know the wort pH before pitching?

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter concern on 12-29-2016 at 02:55 AM
    I got the same with a starter for Wyeast German Ale. The yeast had a tendency to agglomerate
    and looks very course after refrigeration. I have made hundred of starters and this is the
    first time that ...

  • Posted in thread: Hard to explain weak fermentation on 12-29-2016 at 02:52 AM
    Check the pH of the wort. Yeast has different mouths to ingest different types of sugars. The
    main one, maltose, needs acid as it is ingested via a symport. If the pH is not optimal, the
    fermentation ...

    I got how the author determined that a SG = 1.0557 = 68.14 g/L. Never mind.
