  • Posted in thread: question about manifold for kegging (leak?) on 06-30-2014 at 07:10 PM
    in the process of setting up a 3 tap keezer/fridge with a 4-way manifold. the reason for the
    4-way is to have a spare gas line to use for my blichmann beer gun. the gun will only be used
    for filling f...

    I don't have an answer for that, except to say I looked at "balanced profile II" and that one
    is a disaster! I would stay away from those profiles, and take a look at some generic "good
    beer" profiles...

    yes, pre-boil calculations. i thought this was correct to treat ALL the water i use, am i
    wrong? im also confused on how "brewers friend" says essentially 80 ppm of each is for a
    "balanced profile". s...

    Yes, do that for hoppy beers. For malty beers, do the reverse, except you don't need any
    sulfate at all. 80 ppm is ok for calcium, but more than needed, so don't feel bad about cutting
    each of those t...

    Sparge water is fine. I generally split calcium between mash and boil. So how many grams of
    calcium sulfate did you use then?i calculate everything with brewers friend. i use a scale. 80
    ppm each of c...

    If you had to guess how many tsp 100ppm gypsum was in your batch, what would your guess be?Did
    you add all your additions directly to the mash?I know you didnt mention it, but you didnt add
    any magnes...

    the crush seems like it could be better. it doesnt seem crushed enough, so less chance of
    tannin extraction. im not sure what else i can do to improve. the projected ph is 5.4.

    just got done brewing. a few things i want to address while its fresh-missed my OG by a lot.
    this happened last time I used distilled as well. like said, mineral content was about 80 ppm
    each of calci...

  • Posted in thread: all grain with distilled water flavor on 06-02-2014 at 07:08 PM
    IPA/IIPA. For a balanced profile i thought 80-100 of each was accurate. The flavor just seems
    harsh, no real other way to describe it...

    was using RO for awhile, but i really cant trust the water machine after reading about peoples
    results after sending off samples to ward labs. did a batch with distilled with added calcium
    chloride an...
