    Awesome! Thanks, Forrest!

    IMO you can't accurately measure efficiency (and troubleshoot problems) until you are
    accurately measuring volume, temperatures, and gravities.Yeah, but the gravity of my first
    runnings was 1.059 (and...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starters on 08-03-2010 at 08:00 PM
    I used liquid yeasts without starters for a while and didn't have any problems. But if you
    believe Mr. Malty, neither vials of liquid yeast nor smack packs have enough viable cells in
    them for a 5-gal...

    You're only losing 1/2 gallon of water to grain absorbtion with 10lbs of grain? How are you
    measuring volume?Extremely poorly.I've got an electric HLT made from a 10-gallon Rubbermaid
    cooler that has ...

    I had my friend in a chemistry lab test the pH of the filtered water I was using to brew with:
    it's got a pH of ~8.2. So I already add CaCl (1 tsp per 5 gallons) to the brew water.I don't
    know the mas...

    Eek. That's a fair bit more involved than I want to mess with. Guess I'll just live with the
    low conversion for now. Thanks for all the help, though.

    I would not buy 5.2. Get pH test strips or meter instead.And then if the pH is off, do what?

  • Posted in thread: evaluating conversion efficiency on 08-01-2010 at 01:22 AM
    I don't really have much control over the grind, but I can pick up some Five Star 5.2 for my
    next mash and see how that goes.Also, I'll have my thermometer checked; it could very well be
    off.Thanks fo...

    Anybody have much experience dealing with efficiency problems in the conversion, not the
    lauter?Thanks to Kaiser's Troubleshooting Brewhouse Efficiency, I think the source of my ~65%
    brewhouse efficie...
