Ahhhh, gotchya. Makes perfect sense now! Thanks Martin. I'm thinking that may have happened this past weekend. I may have slightly overdosed. But I didn't get too low with the pH. My mash ph was...

I'm curious as to why this is. Also, how much more or less does the acid effect the water when added before heating versus at strike temp? Thanks!
