I beleive the krausen layer on top somewhat protects the fermenting beer from the detrimental effects of oxidation during the process.
The title worried me.Even worst from 80 to 105%
I was afraid he'd say he went from 75% to 100%
It's my understanding that English style beers traditionally used and benefited from open fermentation. It seems I even recall something about it affecting the ester profile. Anybody know anything about that?Czechs are still fermenting in open fermenters. I do not have proof but shalow fermenters create diferent ester profile.
A strip dipped in the mash at room temperature and at mash temperature will look exactly the same. Kai noticed this, I tried it for myself and noticed the same thing.
Essentially follow this with the ColorpHast strips:
Regardless of the temperature, try to target a pH between 5.1 and 5.4 on the strip.
You can just dip the pH strip in the mash and take a reading. Adjust if it looks like it is out of this range.
The hops are grown in the nearby Zatec region of Bohemia. Hops are initially added into the sweet wort before it reaches a boil (first wort hopping); more hops are added about 80 minutes before the end of the boil, and the final addition is added about 25 minutes before the end of the boil. (Pilsner Urquell is not dry-hopped.) Alpha-acid levels in the Saaz hops during the past five years have averaged about 3.8%
