    "Very interesting that acidulation helps already brewed beer."I couldnt believe it either. I
    was extremely dubious when my mate rang me up suggesting we try this.Good luck brew zombie - I
    have my fing...

    Phosphoric acid for both adjusting the beer down and adjusting my sparge water. I think I used
    1.5mls to bring 45L of sparge water down from 8.2 to 5.5When adjusting the beers for the
    experiment we pu...

    Tasted my first beer made with adjusted sparge water (ph 5.5). There isnt any hint of the
    bitter, tonic water or astringent taste. Pretty sure that was my problem.

    Measured the beer carbed, so it would be even higher if I degassed it...well out of range of

    OK, I may have found the problem. I tested the finished Ph of my beers and they were around 4.8
    - 5.5. This is higher than what a finished beer should be (3.9 - 4.2) A friend of mine, who is
    an outsta...

    "So you're saying you may have an acidic residue that is being partially removed with each
    batch you brew?'Im hoping thats it...I soaked my entire rig in PBW (ph 11.5) and then rinsed it
    heavily, fill...

    Hey Brewzombie,Do you cold crash your beers before bottling or do you bottle at 18 or 20
    degrees? (celcius) The fault in mine is always more pronounced when the beer is clear, cold and
    carbed....howev...

    Thanks for getting back to me guys..Yooper - nothing else has changed. Ive been brewing for a
    few years using similar water and yeast techniques etc. I oxygenate my wort with pure 02, it

    Hi Brew Zombie,I am having a mate over this weekend who is a member of my brewclub to see what

    pick the faul...
