Posted in thread: First Speidel fermentation .. boy, I do miss watching the action on 11-16-2015 at 02:22 AM
It's like having an itch I can't reach. Am tempted to drill a hole in the top shoulder of the
bucket and gluing a perspex peep hole over it! Anyone done something as crazy as that?
Posted in thread: Can using flour as a fermentable produce unusually high attenuation? on 10-12-2015 at 11:50 PM
White Labs publishes the apparent attenuation as 65-75%.Interesting. And to think I fermented
at the low end of their recommended temps. Go figure.

I learn something everytime I visit this site! Thanks guys. I've actually found BF's estimates
for FG reasonably accurate. But, come to think of it, my saisons almost always attenuate much
more than t...

Using Brewer's Friend, the expected attentuation from the WLP 565 was 70% but instead I
achieved 85% (FG was 1.012 compared to the target of 1.022)!The grain bill was:5lb Pilsner4lb

Posted in thread: Holy krausen, check out these Belgian recipes! on 09-29-2015 at 01:46 PM
I stumbled across this whilst scouring the net for recipes that could use up my amber Belgian
candi syrup. Sure, the site tries to promote their candi syrup but that's quite a selection of
Posted in thread: Target Mash PH Confusion on 09-26-2015 at 01:42 AM
Here's another thought for you. I used iodine to test for conversion with my finely milled
grain in a BIAB mash and found that the conversion was over at about 3 minutes. Now if I took
my mash pH at 1...
Posted in thread: Target Mash PH Confusion on 09-25-2015 at 02:22 PM
I tried searching for past threads on "mash ph" but the engine returns nothing as the two words
are "too common".So far, I've been following "convention" and targeting a mash ph of ~5.3 as
Posted in thread: Mash PH mysteriously high. Lactic Acid Issue? on 09-09-2015 at 02:46 PM
Thanks guys. Let me look into those aquarium test kits. In the meantime, as an experiment for
my next batch i'll try building my water profile from scratch (pure distilled water). Tap water
is cheap b...

Brewed over the weekend and everything seemed fine. As usual, recipe was formulated on Brewer's
Friend and water chemistry as per Brunwater. The combination usually produces accurate
predictions on th...
Posted in thread: Are multiple air aerations more effective than a single application of pure oxygen? on 07-30-2015 at 02:35 AM
I’m not making any assertions here as I don't have a dissolved oxygen meter to do the
experiment so the following charts and ideas are based purely on speculation. But, this is a
