    Good to hear wobdee! Just bottled an Irish red, but it was a normal mash schedule. However it
    was the first where we adjusted our water. Tasted the sample and it was head over heels better
    than our fi...

    Update on the wheat. It is fantastic. It attenuated well but actually had a very nice
    mouthfeel. Very solid medium body. I like that. Also, it came out extremely clean, which has to
    do more with the y...

    Ahhhh, gotchya. Makes perfect sense now! Thanks Martin. I'm thinking that may have happened
    this past weekend. I may have slightly overdosed. But I didn't get too low with the pH. My mash
    ph was 5.27....

    ....When you have calculated an acid addition based on the tap water's alkalinity, you do want
    to add that acid before heating.....I'm curious as to why this is. Also, how much more or less
    does the ...

    Will do. My next is going to be a black India saison. 10 pounds of bohemian pilsner malt... So
    I'm going to do more of a traditional step mash. 131 for 15-20 minutes and then up I about 150
    or so. But...

    Awesome! Seems like the low alpha rest got you down some points. I'm excited to see how yours
    comes out. I also brewed a hoppy American wheat a couple weekends ago with a mash schedule very
    similar to...

    AJ, Thanks again for the response! This one I did fully understand and again appreciate the
    fact that you take so much time into explaining everything fully in your posts. I do feel more
    comfortable a...

    Cool thanks for your response. As far as the munich and brown sugar, I wanted to make the
    backbone of this beer a true to style saison. I made one about a year ago and all it was, was
    Pilsner, a low a...

    So, I was really wanting to brew something different. Different than the usual Pales, Ipas,
    porters, stouts, etc. I have always wanted to do a Black IPA, so I said, why not spice it up
    with the Saison...

    AJ, Thanks for the very in depth reply, and Ive grown to know that your replies are nothing
    short of extremely in depth and I respect that. However, I read your post multiple times and
    its a little bi...
