Adding sugar won't raise the FG as it is mostly fermentable. It'll just create more alcohol. Try adding something unfermentable like lactose or maltodextrine if you want to raise the FG. Those...

I just recently built out some proper fermentation control. This summer, my apartment has been between 65 and 89 degrees, the latter being during a heat wave.

I'd gotten pretty good with a swamp...

In regards to adding Gypsum to the kettle, would adding Calcium Chloride ostensibly provide the same benefits?

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who had that thought (and that I'm most likely not crazy). I'd be interested to see how the Trois Centennial Pale turns out, provided you get to try some. My club...

Just throwing out a weird observation:

I brewed an all-Citra IPA with Conan a few weeks ago. Pretty simple grist, lots of Citra @ flameout and dry. Fermented at 62-63. It came out insanely...

Yep, that sounds about right...

1000 ICU = 1 gm/litre. 1 gal contains 3.785 litres. 5 gal is 18.925 litres. Therefore ~19 grams would be 1000 ICU, so to hit 500, you need roughly half that -...

I'd be surprised if there truly isn't Pearl available in your area. For example, Munton's Pale Ale Malt is Pearl. IIRC, Kimmich uses Fawcett Pearl, which I've been unable to source, but there are...
