Last week I purchased ingredients for a 10 gallon Oktoberfest batch (very late, I know.) As it

Thanks for the heads up. As I mentioned before, I'm not so familiar with electrical side of
things. I honestly thought GFCI was for higher voltage and not water. I found a GFCI plug on

Thanks for all the help guys! I dont have a GFCI outlet in my kitchen so I think I will go with

I see that you recognize the potential for the acid's anion to create off flavors. Although
there are some acids that are more flavor neutral than others, eventually you will reach a

So I've read a lot about the fact that Alkalinity is simply a "buffer" and nothing more. Which
means that the more Alkalinity in your water, the more acid you will need to reduce the PH. If
this is th...
