Thanks for the responses, guys, and my apologies for causing the confusion.What's causing my

For my upcoming PM batch, the Brunwater spreadsheet recommended no acid additions inorder to
achieve a 5.4 mash PH. This got me intrigued because the grain bill is mostly pilsner with only
a little bi...

Me too - will keep targeting the recipe mash temps irrespective. Currently, mash temp seems to
be the only variable I have good control over (except weighing the grains!) so it might be a

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

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

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
