    Ouch, youd be better off letting the mash go longer while you heated the sparge water up. Next
    time :)Calculating sparge water more precisely, and heating it more got me over 80% eff. I now
    heat the s...

    Your fine, its all going to re ferment anyways. As long as you got the yeast woken up and a bit
    of growth it should do the trick.Some strains take longer to do their thing.

    Brew Like a Monk is a great book on Belgian Ales, and the author explains how many of the
    brewers will rack bigger beers and add new yeast twice, sometimes three times. In some cases
    more fermentable ...

    Also have been using corn sugar, but I suppose any fermentable sugar would do fine. It's a
    fraction of your total fermentables

  • Posted in thread: Mashed to low? on 07-14-2015 at 03:45 PM
    From what ive heard most of the conversion is done in the first 10 mins of the mash. Like you

    1.4 Bittering to Gravity ratio. Is that what your going for?As far as the fruitiness goes i
    believe you would only need to change your mid/late hop additions and lower fermentation temp.

    The yeast is what makes a hef a hef. For most other beers you can get away with using us05 dry
    yeast or nottingham, but not hefs or belgians.You can mix the yeast back into suspension to
    cloud it up i...

  • Posted in thread: How long does it take you ? on 07-14-2015 at 01:52 PM
    I agree. At first many years ago when brewing "simple" beers, it took me maybe 5 hrs tops.Fast
    forward to now and its elaborate, more than one batch, many people and usually a barbecue along
    with it.I...

    Most homebrew stores have products called "5.2 stabilizers" that are pretty broad buffers but
    if you want to manually adjust it, many people have success with lactic acid

    But i can see how adding it post boil would be different
