    Say that you are paying attention to the pH. You mash in and test and realize you need to make
    an adjustment. I've heard from multiple places that most of the conversion happens really
    quickly, so wha...

    Thank you again A.J., I seem to have it. I had confused the 40 g of malt used in the test mash,
    with the 40 mEq of acid needed to lower 1 kg of malt by 1.0 pH unit. The two are completely

    If you add 1 cc of 88% lactic acid to 100 mL of DI or RO water you will have a solution that is

    Hi all, I've made a couple of beer batches so far (so still a noob), and all of them have been

    I have always boiled wort made with Pilsner malt for 90 minutes. Pretty much because a 90
    minute boil was something someone somewhere had recommended a while ago. The extra 30 minute
    boil did not dark...

    For what size batch? Surely not 5 gallons,.Sorry about my math error. For a 5 gallon batch it
    should be 2.5 ounces of hops, added with 60 minutes remaining to the boil.

    No Name IPA at 6% ABV, delicious.

    I like that balance with a small amount of Vienna as you suggested or maybe a bit of Crystal
    10L. I love German beers and figure Hallertau is likely my favorite noble hop.With your version
    of Kolshbie...
