    There is a period for end of sentence after the four, and if you know how or where to get food
    grade HCL let us know. Meanwhile 36% HCL is HCL and the remainder is non reactive distilled
    water. So I u...

    Get a good PH meter and some 36% HCL (Muratic) acid from a swimming pool supply. Knock the PH
    down with the HCL to around 4. 3.3-5.0 will work from my experience. The reaction is thus:

    Sometimes the yeast IS the problem. I made 3 batches with a German Lager strain that I couldn't
    drink. Tasted like cough syrup to me. But I use the same equipment a similar recipe and same

    Well said. I said after my last 6 liter starter that I wouldn't do another one. I can't bear to

    On brew day I rack and then pour out about 2/3 rds of the trub and yeast in the yard. Then pour

    with it.
