Icemaker Tubing works greatI was getting ready to make a bunch of hoses for 6 kegs and it was
getting spendy. Started looking around Lowe's and saw a coil of icemaker tubing--25ft for $3.

Holy MolY that is way too much acid malt. I put 4 ozs in my German Pilsners to drop pH to 5.3.
I plugged 1.5 lbs into my Pils recipe and pH dropped to 4.0. That is incredibly acidic and

Welcome. Fayetteville brewer here. Good to have another Arkansan aboard.

I picked up one of these 1 gal glass cracker jars at WM for $5. I looked at several and picked
the one with the flattest bottom. It sits on my stirplate and doesn't throw the stirbar. Cover
