I agree 100%. I have the MM 2 2.0 with the new "wheel" gap adjustors and it is amazing! The bigger rollers are what really makes the difference in its ability to pull grain through and crush...

WLP410 used to be my favorite for wits, though Forbidden Fruit has been treating me right with great flavor, solid ferments, and quick starts. Might be my new favorite!

I don't treat my sparge RO water with the thought process being that I want it to be as unbuffered as possible so that the mash's pH will stay in the 5's while I sparge.

Nice - the Brewer's Friend gets me to an estimated 5.29 for yesterday's mash that measured 5.25, so it's definitely the closest of the three.

thanks!

Thanks! This has been VERY helpful! I plugged in my numbers for the original sour PA, and it said my mash pH was probably 4.9@room temp - obviously a big problem.

I'll have to wait to brew again,...
