    Building Water for a Kolsch

    so you're saying alkalinity is still to high? Still just a little confused because its negative, does that matter if it is negative? Sorry for all the question's. Alkalinity (CaCO3): -103

    Dusselfdorf Alt water profile

    Doesn't baking soda raise pH and acid alt lowers ph to get me in the range of 5.3 which I like? Also if you throw chalk into the mash it dissolves properly and then for your 2nd running throw the chalk in the wort that's all drained out.

    dusseldorf Alt water profile

    From what I've been given, it is saying the sulfate is higher than the Chloride, making the beer more bitter. I would think you would want the beer more malty to balance out the high IBU's of the Alt. Hear is the profile and if anyone else has experience with this style of beer, please chime in...

    Palmer just states that your proofing the dry yeast to see if it's still viable should be perfectly fine.

    Another Mr Malty Pitching Calculator

    Sorry for another question's but I'm very unsure about some of the steps. I was doing a lager requiring 420 billion yeast cells for my beer. I have a 5L flask so can I just pitch 1 vial of yeast in 4.82 L starter to give me the proper pitching rate or would I need to steep it up? Also I have...

    oktoberfest with saflager s-23

    Do D-Rest when fermentation is 2/3's complete. After a day or 2 check gravity, the beer should be finished up with the FG, when FG reads constant for 2 days in a row you can drop to lager temperatures slowly.

    Target Water Profile for Pliny the Elder Clone

    I used Tastys water profile for his Janet Brown and it's not a over powering hop bite but rather a smoothness that pop's them out a little more to notice them. Well done Tasty.
