Ingredients / Re: Convert Acidulated Malt amount to lactic acid
« on: March 14, 2019, 04:02:43 PM »
Acidulated malt is ~2% lactic acid by weight, and 88% lactic acid has a density of 1.21 g/mL, so for every pound of acid malt you'd be adding 8.5 mL of acid. Obviously that changes substantially if your maltster uses a different ratio of acid.

Thank you for this.

Can anyone comment on the pH level I should shoot for going into the kettle when attempting a Gose?

Ingredients / Convert Acidulated Malt amount to lactic acid

Interested in doing a gose and would prefer to use lactic acid over malt. From what I hear it’s a good idea to shoot for a ph of 3.8 after conversion. Is that true? Is there a simple conversion for acid malt to lactic acid?

Thanks. Ok I see Bru'n Water recommends 5.5 - 6.0. I'm not switching to fly sparging just looking at my processes. Was just curious if sparge pH had any effect. Sounds like I can continue to lower it.

Just curious what sparge pH everyone is using when batch sparging. Does it affect efficiency at all? Is the preferred range 5.6 - 6.0?

I have been using ~6.0 forever and decided to switch it up to 5.8 for a few batches and have not noticed any differences.

I leave the grain in the bags and put the bags in plastic storage tubs.

Thanks Denny. I had thought about that yesterday. Seems like the most cost effective way as well.

Thank you. I'm in Colorado so moisture is not an issue. Thinking about starting small with 3 base grains since I primarily use Pilsner and Munich malts in a lot of my beers.

I would like to move to bulk base grain storage this summer. Any one have recommendations on decent bins for grain storage?

I would recommend Imperial A24 Dry Hop which is a blend of sacch trois and conan. It's hard as hell to get clear so will give you that orange juice look as well.

Looks tasty, might have to make that very soon! Have you used M84 before? Not something my LHBS carries but I love dry yeast! 34/70 has been my go to but I'd like to try something different

I love M76 Bavarian. M84 is very solid as well but doesn't attenuate as much as I would like.

Looks great!

Thanks man. Very happy with it although it's a bit unorthodox.
How so?

This batch is not that far off the more I think about it. I used to make it with flaked oats but removed that for this batch. It has a touch of brown malt which is obviously not traditional.
