    Cloudiness isn't an indicator of usefulness. PH test strips will tell the tail. 3.0 or lower.

    When the rapid bubbling slows or stops, only initial fermentation is done. It'll then slowly,
    uneventfully creep down to a stable FG. Since yours may've stalled, the advice to gently swirl

    Just be careful that the water is warm, but not hot. Even very hot tap water can warp them.

    Mashing is normally done for 1 hour. Steeping for 20-30 minutes. Base grains need the extra
    time for conversion. I do pb/pm biab myself. 1 hour mash in 1 1/4-1 1/2 quarts of water per
    pound of grain. ...

    Cloudiness has little or nothing to do with the PH. Craigtube did a test once to show his.

I have to admit this time of year is really starting to suck out loud. They always wait til Thanksgiving time to fuck me outta my last dime. This year is the worst ever. We got no tree,I know I'm not getting any gifts,had to shop at the cheapy store to get the kids something at least. Which is hard cause they're all grown. I got no beer ready,so nothing to drink. No cigs,no vodka,no bourbon...none of the usual. WE only have italian sausage to go with spaghetti tonight because of the food bank. There's no pity for a broke retiree. No $$ till 12/31,which does nothing about right now.
