    Hmmm, well I left the lids finger tight (following the jar instructions) and now I have purple
    water after the boil. Maybe I have watery beets now o.OEDIT: the product appears to have
    survived the boi...

    Thanks for the advice. The beets were boiled with vinegar, sugar and spices, so definately
    acidic. They've been cooling on my counter for an hour now, but maybe I should do a 15 minute
    water bath righ...

    So I decided to try my hand at making beet chutney following youtube instructions that called
    for storing it while hot in sterilized jars then leaving it for a month to mellow. No mention
    of boiling t...

    I should add I always brew to 5.25%, around 1.056-8 with this yeast. Perhaps light vs
    dark/roasted malts play a part in what I've experienced?

    Hey everyone,I use 1469 quite a bit, which as you may know is a top cropper strain and quite
    the yeast factory. I've noticed that if I over-pitch (i.e.: activity within 4 hrs), I end up
    with a smaller...

    Quick oats are recommended because they are smaller (i.e.: more surface area) and supposedly
    easier to convert than regular rolled oats. Same applies to fine vs coarse milled malted grain.
    I use the q...

    Would you mind describing the top-cropping process? I'm familiar with the concept, but not the
    actual procedure or steps employed?ThanksSure... I ferment 5 and 6 gallon batches in an 8
    gallon brewing ...

    Talk about reliable and low maintenance. I love this yeast. It ferments to the numbers every
    time, drops clear after 10 days and goes well in anything from American and English pale ales
    to porters an...

  • Posted in thread: Estimate for oat mash pH? on 01-23-2015 at 06:04 PM
    In the absence of solid data, what observations are people making with oats in the mash? I
    heard rumor of a measured pH 0.1-2 lower than estimated when categorizing oats as base malt.
    I'm unsure which...

    I found this response to the same question from a general internet
    search:https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=6696.0So, it looks like
    they should be treated same as base malt....
