  • Posted in thread: AG to Partial Mash/Partial Boil? on 03-02-2014 at 12:23 PM
    Once in awhile I do a partial mash/partial boil brew, usually when it's too cold outside for
    using propane burner and 10gal pot. In those cases I brew indoors using an electric oven.
    Getting 6 gallons...

    Hard to tell from a pic, looks like uncrushed whole pieces of grain are in the mash. Are there
    whole pieces?If yes, you have likely found your issue. Sent from my iPhone using Home
    BrewCorrect, there ...

    Thanks for all the tips, suggestions, and info to research.BansheeRider, this partial
    mash/partial boil was a rare occurrence. I typically brew all grain full boil. Jay

    I would rank my malt mill as the best purchase of all of my equipment. I love being able to
    mill my own grain!Which mill do you have?

    It may be too late, but here are a couple pics of the POST-MASH grains. Not sure if they will
    help in evaluating crush or not.I will probably go the route of getting a mill for myself. That
    will be fu...

    Do you brewers have any recommendations for trying either the 90 minute mash and/or the
    water/grain ratio on a small scale? I'd like to try these out but not on a full batch scale.
    But then again, I g...

    This is where I'm confused. It sounds like pre-boil gravity is what you measured, which is
    always lower than the post boil gravity. Would you be able to clarify a bit more? Did you
    measure after your ...

    I have low mash efficiency and am trying to narrow down the most likely reason and I think it
    may be the grain crush. I batch sparge.Equipment:10 gal orange HD cooler with a 36" SS braided
    hose.Most r...

  • Posted in thread: my water report - usable or beyond hope? on 01-23-2014 at 12:17 AM
    That is great news. Thank you for that info, Matt. I plan on purchasing a pH meter in the
    coming weeks and with that AND the knowledge I'm learning about water chemistry I have high
    hopes for my futur...

    Thanks for the quick reply, Martin. Yes, Lake Michigan water indeed. So where am I getting
    confused regarding the alkalinity level? If mine water is 117 then even if I did a 1:1 mix with
    RO that would...
