    Anyone care to guess what Hill Farmstead does to their water?

    Yeah, I'd emailed him. Good luck on the beer.

    Milk Alcohol By A Newbie

    They're sweetened with cane sugar...so yes...no need for lactase obviously

    Final PH of yeast starter. Infected?

    Assuming your meter was calibrated properly...probably lacto or similar, yeah

    Do you measure wort or air temperature during the diacetyl rest

    I keep mine attached to the fermenter. I'm not sure what the point of using ambient is.

    protofloc problems

    Afaict, they're just like whirlfloc

    How is PH effected by reverse osmosis?

    I'm guessing that was just a placeholder number.

    Imperial Yeast. Watch out!!

    Again though, they're one data point and some of the time they're one person away from statistical significance. So it seems likely some people did notice a difference.

    Imperial Yeast. Watch out!!

    I'm not necessarily saying the experiments are dangerous in and of themselves. It's the frequent use of them as more than a single data point that is dangerous. Things like the oxygen versus no oxygen experiment or the direct pitch versus rehydration. It can be measured that you get more...

    Imperial Yeast. Watch out!!

    Presumably you mean the yeast book? It seems odd that the water book would mention it.

    Imperial Yeast. Watch out!!

    Ah, the dangers of the exbeeriment stuff. At least I assume that's where the vitality starter phrasing came from in his post.

    Anyone care to guess what Hill Farmstead does to their water?

    I forgot to post this...according to shawn the water alkalinity from his well is about 140...so he probably adds a fair bit of acid in addition to a lot of calcium

    Best Yeast For Belgian Golden Strong Ale

    That's the Duvel yeast.

    A Brewing Water Chemistry Primer

    Yeah, but it's supposed to be a Heady clone...it definitely normally has a fair bit of sulfate.

    A Brewing Water Chemistry Primer

    It depends. Some spring water might not be soft. Spring water doesn't imply low mineral though.
