  • Posted in thread: Mash pH predictions on 10-09-2016 at 01:52 PM
    Sorry to bump and old post, but thought I'd share...I just found this to be true myself.
    Yesterday I used EZ Water to determine that I needed 3.5 oz of acidulated malt to bring my mash
    PH down to 5.4....

    What was the temperature of your 5.02 pH mash sample? What were the calculated Mg, Ca, Na, Cl
    and SO4 ppm values for your recipe, using Dark Munich, Dark Wheat and Dehusked Carafa III?

  • Posted in thread: Help balancing Bru'n Water inputs first time on 10-08-2016 at 12:31 PM
    Based on the brewer's notes, that I've copied below, the water profile used to brew his beer is
    'very hard' and the Sulfate/Chloride ratio is 0.8:1 (or expressed as 1.20) and good for brewing
    a balanc...

    I usually pitch 1 vial of liquid yeast into 2 liters of 1.035 wort and on a stirplate expect

  • Posted in thread: Pale Ale Water Profile using Bru N Water on 10-04-2016 at 03:36 AM
    I started out buying distilled water from the store and using it for building my water
    profiles. After settling into a new place the first thing I did was to install an RO filter to
    avoid lugging all ...

    Anyone ever have their 5lb tank only take 2.5 lbs of gas? Dude at the fill store said he tried
    everything to get it to take the full 5 lbs. He even took the head off and inspected the

    I've been using a Brews By Smith STC-1000+ controller for over 2 years with a G&E 7 cubic foot
    chest freezer and never had any problems, but I don't remember what the ampere draw is on it.

  • Posted in thread: 10 gallon biab on 09-30-2016 at 01:39 PM
    Huh. I do 10 gallon biab in a 15 gallon pot all the time. Never needed to hold back any water.
    I drain the grains through a perforated bucked into a fermenter bucket, so if I ended up low on
    volume I ...

  • Posted in thread: Can I cut my c02 dip tube to get more beer in the keg? on 09-29-2016 at 07:23 PM
    Looking inside a corny keg there is a black line about an inch below the top of the keg. That

    to filled ...
