    Just so you know, mash temp variance of 10 degrees F can make a HUGE difference, because of
    alpha and beta amylase activity.Good to know. Then, I'm glad my mash doesn't vary that much!Was
    pondering on...

    Guys,These are all fair points on this "submerged mash" approach, especially if your kettle
    size is 5+ gals. If your traditional approach works for you then that's fantastic and I'm
    jealous.Perhaps th...

    I did an experiment last weekend to try to produce a superior temperature profile for my mash
    AND without requiring intervention (such as fine-tuning the stove or diluting my mash with hot
    water). By ...

    For anyone interested, I completed another batch yesterday where I batch-added the salts
    (except the CaCo3 which was mash only) and separately acidified the sparge and mash waters
    based on the recomme...

    a lot of great brewers got their start brewing thanks to those Mr. Beer LBKs!Now you're just
    being plain modest! A lot of Mr Beer brewers became great thanks to people like you.:mug:

    Screwy, good to see you on this forum! I used to see your reponses often on the Mr Beer forum
    many years back.

    Thanks everyone. Seems like the end conclusions are the same - sparge water doesn't need much
    acidification, if at all!My fault for cutting corners and trying to prepare all the water needs
    in one go....

    FYI, I think I know why my sparge water ph was so low. From both Brunwater and Brewer's Friend,
    it seems the amount of acid needed to reach the target ph of 5.4 in the mash and the sparge are
    differen...

    Fair concerns but there are techniques to reduce the oils (such as roasting) and adding
