    Wow I can't believe this thread is allowed. Marijuana is still illegal in EVERY state, by
    federal law. Not sure the mods thought this through.

    On your next batch, flip the big seal upside down, so that the direction is like this: U If
    that doesn't work, stick some spacers under the 4 clamps so that they pull the lid with more
    force. I'm sure...

    Well if you want it historical, the you should smoke your malt with straw, which is how it was
    done in Westeros, errr Brittain.

    Get yourself some good strips. ColorpHast from morebeer are awesome.Wish it were true. After I
    bought my pH meter, I checked against strips well over a dozen times, and the Colorphast strips

    Nobody has identified yeasts that are better or worse in low-ph worts. And 3.5 isn't even that
    low. So yeah, saison yeasts will work fine.

    Smoked beers really want a high level of fullness/maltiness and low levels of hops and anything
    that could be perceived as acrid. So I'd ditch the Brown Malt and replace with a darker
    crystal/cara mal...

    The only reason to ever use pumpkin in a beer is for color, since it contributes no flavor. So
    in a stout, where you won't see the color, .... what's the point? And even assuming a "pumpkin
    flavor" do...

    I understand about the darker malts, but how about something like a Munich? I've made a SMaSH
    with just Munich and Ahtanum with a 60 minute mash. It came out really good, very malt forward
    and slightl...

  • Posted in thread: Inconsistent mash pH with acid malt on 08-11-2015 at 02:55 PM
    Funny you say that AJ, because I can never seem to predict mash pH well when using wheat malt.
    Is there a simple way to test the acidity of acid malt? And "simple" would exclude titrations.

    So just to clarify for myself.. The goal when you start to try controlling your PH levels is to
    match your sparge water's PH to your Mash PH or else it's really all for not, right?Nah,
    matching sparge...
