    How's your calculus? a1 is the slope of the curve at pHdi. Draw the line tangent to the curve
    at pHdi and extend it till it hits the axes (if you can). The change in mEq per unit change in
    pH is a1.Th...

    Weyermann Pils measured pHDI = 5.483 after 25 minutes (the third digit to the right of the
    decimal place is a consequence of he fact that several pH readings are averaged) at 45.4 C.
    Translating to r...

    There aren't really two approaches. You must include the buffering in calculating the amount of
    acid required to reach a certain pH or to estimate what the pH of a mash will be. Suppose you
    have a sma...

    AJ thank you for taking the time to provide your concise, detailed explanation and advice on
    how malt DI pH values should be derived. I honestly never even thought about the buffering
    capacity of the ...

  • Posted in thread: Crazy Attentuation on IIPA on 12-06-2016 at 05:17 PM
    My guess is that a combination of low mash temperature and a low mash pH is the reason for
    lower than anticipated attenuation. Either of the two will have an impact on the production of
    fermentable su...

    You have run into, what I believe to be, the source of nearly all the pH discrepancies in water
    chemistry calculators, namely the DI pH of the recipe's grains.The acid content of different
    grains will...

  • Posted in thread: DampRid in Chest Freezer on 12-06-2016 at 05:01 PM
    I have used unscented DampRid in my temperature controlled fermentation freezer for years now
    and can vouch for it working perfectly to prevent mold. I buy the 4-pack of replacement pouches
    to keep a ...

    Unfortunately, a side effect seems to be that my mash pH (room temp) has been coming in around
    0.15 - 0.20 below my target in bru'n water and I'm not sure what might be causing it. Look at
    the DI pH o...

  • Posted in thread: Recirc eBIAB Kettle Return Options on 11-11-2016 at 09:55 PM
    Interesting topic that got me thinking about adding a whirlpool arm to my Bayou Classic kettle
    too. The threads of the ball valve, located at the bottom of my kettle, has 3/8 of an inch of
    thread expo...

  • Posted in thread: Blichman Beer Gun on 11-11-2016 at 07:13 PM
    I turn my Co2 pressure down to 5 psi when filling bottles using a beer gun. Any higher than
    that and the beer just gushes into the bottle way too fast. The latest beers that I bottled
    were carbonated ...
