    Very similar to mine and we're like an hour away. I use phosphoric acid for the typical ales
    and use 100% distilled with some acid malt on delicate german lagers. Started with EZ water
    myself (2.0) bu...

    Yes, I chill and dump EVERYTHING in the fermenter. Last IPA was 12oz hops. I scale up to 6G and
    lose nearly 1G to losses. I won't say that it tastes better per se, just that it does not
    negatively aff...

    Looks to me that you are doing things right. Gotta some pesky little thing. How you predicting
    salt and pH?

    OK rule that out. Plan to keg a US05 IPA tonight. First time I used dry yeast in forever but
    used chico a long time and it drops clear. Can you vouch for the RO? Your system or store
    water? I had a bu...

    Hope the OP made progress. I don't think filtering makes much difference. I don't bother to

    without the ...

    Use what you want. Others think I am nuts but I HATE lactic acid. Acid malt is fine though.
    That said, I use phosphoric acid for my ales and acid malt in my lagers. Off the top of my
    head, 6G IPA take...

    It's pH. Hang out in the brew science area and check out the stickies. Chances are all you guys
    need are a few ml of acid and your will beer will never be better. DL and learn a water
    spreadsheet, get...

    It's marketing like this that allows the BMC guys to smirk at me when I snag the occasional
    sixer of Old Milwaukee. Least it is American...

    Best advice I was ever given with regard to being patient with homebrewing was to brew more
    beer. Seriously. Stop fretting about this one and get another one on deck.

    Nothing to worry about but I occasionally clean mine with TSP and real hot water and it does
