I'm pretty sure it does change, not sure how much. When John Kimmich stated that he shoots for a pH of 5.1-5.3 people on this thread said that he is measuring after the mash at the mash temperature...

The difference is that the yeast is always pitched in an un-hopped beer with an OG less than 1.040, and I only let it attenuate 50-75% before cold crashing the yeast out. The bottom line is that my...

I harvested Conan from a can of Heady last year and have been getting 85-92% attenuation from it consistently. My trick is that I always hold back at least 20 billion cells and propagate it fresh...

Your pH might have been fine as the 5.1-5.3 pH John Kimmich suggests is actually 5.4-5.6 at room temperature. Also, that is the pH at the end of the mash. What you really want to do is check your pH...

From my reading of the recipe, it is 5.5 oz for the 1st dry hop, and 2.75 oz each for the 2nd and 3rd dry hops, for a total of 11 oz. The first time I did the recipe I thought 5.5 oz was the total...

Exactly, that's why it's my recipe and not someone else's recipe, but I'm using a lot of the techniques that I learned from the Heady clone that IMO made it great. My last Heady clone (the one that...

The 50/50 mix of GP and 2-row is pretty much the same as Pearl malt. I'm using a little more Caramalt, but I'm not using wheat so I don't think the malt is much more complex than the Heady clone.

I actually disagree with you. Fresh Heady is great, but according to John Kimmich Heady gets better after 10 weeks. I had some fresh Heady, but the last can I drank that had been sitting in the...

I'm using 4 tsp of gypsum in my mash water to hit the high Ca and sulfate levels that will bring out the serious hop flavor that Heady is known for. That's how much gypsum is needed to hit 700+ ppm...

The number may sound high, but 4 tsp of gypsum alone will add 700 ppm of Ca and SO4. 2 tsp of gypsum isn't out of line in the least for a 5 gallon batch, so I think going a little higher than this...

He's talking about measured pH at mash temperature, so apparently that's between 5.4 and 5.6 at room temperature.
