    We assume that after the sparge all the soluble stuff, that is, the stuff responsible for the
    buffering of the mash, is now in the wort and that, therefore, the buffering of the wort is the
    same as t...

    Why would you want a 4.5 boil pH?For kettle souring. This boil pH will encourage my souring
    wort to stay off the bad nasties and only sourroz as planned.

    So, I understand that acidifying sparge water can be tricky when you're using RO because there

    started cooli...

    in a Reaper's...

    Nottingham was used in the beer that shows the most off flavor. Not diacetyl, or acetaldehyde,
    or phenolic. Just a kind of musty tanginess.Other strains, like US 05, have given the same
    taste I can't ...

    So, over the course of many batches I have changed several variables and seen pros and cons
