  • Posted in thread: Length of Pilsen acid rests. on 08-17-2015 at 05:51 PM
    I generally use 2% or less when needed. EZ Water is what I use to calculate what I need to get
    to the desired pH for each brew. Granted, it will only get me close, as I don't have a pH meter
    to get an...

    I'm not quite sure I would know how to determine how much to use in a batch. I do not own a pH
    meter yet, but it is on my list.

    It looks like it's best if I just stick with the recommended method of lowering the mash pH
    with acidulated malt. I am not familiar with the use of phosphoric acid for acidifying the
    mash, but have re...

    Will a decoction mash cause any noticeable reduction in pH when brewinging a Pilsner?

    Is phytase something that maltsters list for their malt specs? I don't recall seeing it on any
    malt data sheets. That's probably something I'd have to get by contacting the malt supplier
    directly. Dep...

    What about the low kilning temps for Pilsner malt? I thought there was plenty of phytase left
    in Pilsner malt due to the 100-122F kilning temp.

    I adjust pH by adding brewing salts before adding any acid malt. But I really try to limit the
    acid malt because lactic acid can sometimes bother my stomach. So, I was considering
    alternatives when br...

    Where can I find out the length of the acid rests the Pilsen brewers use to lower mash ph?
    There are a lot of references to this traditional method used in Pilsen because of their soft
    water, but most...

  • Posted in thread: What grain can I use to add amber color to an American blond ale? on 08-08-2015 at 07:23 PM
    I have had luck adding a reddish hue to beers with just a couple ounces (depending on recipe)
    of roasted barley. It isn't enough to have much flavor impact, if any. You can also use
    Carared, melanoidi...

  • Posted in thread: Refractometer Purchase Help on 08-05-2015 at 08:31 PM
    If you are buying a refractometer, just make sure that it has a non-linear scale. Some of the
    cheap ones from China have linear scales. 20 deg. Brix is closer to SG 1.083, not 1.080. If you
    brew only ...
