Acidualted Malt

Is this used merely to balance pH? Little else?

Going to be making lagers and pilsners for the next 18 months and wondering if I should grab this in bulk.

Is there a good way to preserve malts?

I'm going to be buying some serious bulk (300lbs) of malt. The expiry on the bags is quite long (two or three years I forget), but this changes when you open a bag, and even with changing climates. ...

Nice thing about KT is you can be super lazy let it sit for months, drain the vinegar/liquid completely, add starter and you're good to go

Because this batch is a quick gift and it's up to the recipients to condition and store the bottles. So more so I'd like to know if steps 7 & 8 are sound.

I was just going to add that I don't know what Dead Ringer tastes like, but the 04 will give a little more English ale after taste compared to the 05, and it should add to the maltiness as it doesn't...

the 05 is pretty dry, and you have to rely more on the mash temp and grain bill imo

using the 05 and your grain bill I'd up the mash temp (154-156), and maybe next time around try the 04. if i...

I haven't looked up guinness as to whether it's a young beer or not. I would guess not. But either way 4-6 weeks in secondary will not do any harm at all. In most cases from what I gather 4-6 weeks...

How do you bottle condition lagers?

Here's the steps that I'd like to do. Tell me if I'm severely flawed:

1. 10-14 day ferment (inc d-rest)
2. cold crash 48 hours
3. transfer to a sanitized and CO2 purged keg (for ease of bottling...

For now I'm going to assume that the 20 min Hallertau aroma/flavor has completely dissipated, and what's remaining is the hop bitterness (mostly from the 60min) and the Motueka flavor.

Motueka Hops

Made a lager with Hallertau at 60 and 20, Motueka at 15, 10, and 5. At month 2 and 3 I could taste a general bitterness and maybe a particular element of the grain bill. Not much hop aroma really....

Thanks. I'm past the kits (*nose in the air*). I did add 2oz dry hopped to a brew and noticed how quickly it died down after it peaked. About a week no more pretty much.

How do you calculate IBU

For long term conditioning?

There's a decay rate to bitterness isn't there? I certainly tasted my 25IBU drop to what would seem 8-10 IBU after a longer conditioning period

C02 question regarding beer styles
