    Temp overshoots in mash?

    Forgot to mention that I recirculate for the entire mash through a rims heat stick. Just bought myself a pid output temp controller hopefully that will control the temps a little better as my other controller was just relay out on/off

    Temp overshoots in mash?

    Thanks for the feedback guys really appreciate it.. I'm sure it will be still drinkable but just a sipper. One or 2 not 5 or 6!!! Lol. Should try to blend it but I'm too lazy. I'll probably just keg it carb it and drink it lol

    Temp overshoots in mash?

    How detrimental to the final product can these overshoots be? I had a big overshoot when mashing my milk stout last weekend and I'm concerned the final product may turn out too sweet... It was up to like 88c for 5 mins and my concern is that it would have affected the enzymes that convert the...

    My last brew way too sweet and malty

    Didn't filter it.. Novice mistake... Used pellets. And I'm guessing it's not really bad for you it's just it looks cloudy, tastes great though!! It was clear beforehand but it will be right I think!

    My last brew way too sweet and malty

    So I got 500ml of water and 25g of fuggles hops as this is all I had on hand. Boiled it for 30mins and added to keg! This morning I did that and I just tasted it and the sickening sweetness is gone its got a great bitter flavor. It's just very cloudy.. Will it settle out?

    My last brew way too sweet and malty

    My last brew way too sweet and malty

    I have no control over mash temps so I guess I will just steer clear of the kit in question! Or just try it with straight dextrose as it is fully fermentable???

    My last brew way too sweet and malty

    Do I need to lay off the malt addition to my coopers kit of is my fg to high causing that sweet ****ty flavor? OG 1040 FG 1012 Left in primary for 3 weeks then kegged and carbed for a week and a bit! Coopers kit yeast was used and I reckon that's the issue I reckon it may have slowed up to early...

    Best temps for coopers kit yeast

    The reason I ask is one of my mates is getting into brewing and I just don't want it to work out terrible and turn him off brewing altogether lol Personally I use different yeast like us-05 or Nottingham don't like the coopers kit yeast at all.....
