Yeah, the acid malt was suggested by my LBS. I think next time I'll leave it out until I check

Yeah hoping it won't effect too much, this had 4.25 lbs fermentable grains, probably about 1/3

Hi all, I just wanted to get some opinions on what to expect with my IIPA that I had some

Sounds good guys. I'll let it ride another week or so.

chamber at 66°.I've heard this strain like a D-rest. How should I go about doing it? Right now

Posted in thread: How to check OG in a partial mash? on 01-14-2016 at 02:36 PM
This worked perfectly. I found I was 6 points under my predicted mash OG so added an extra 1/4
