General Homebrew Discussion / 02 level in wort
« on: February 17, 2016, 07:01:22 PM »
I  have been  chugging away  at  all grain  around twenty  years  with  no  real issues   last  18.BUT,as I  was off work  today  pondering  lifes mysteries.I was  thinking  how  do I consistently add 02 to my   wort? For a  very long time I have  used a  stone with  disposable   02 bottles. But through use inside pressure goes  down so I am  cranking up the gauge-less regulator. I  am a thinking gravity  and  temp  are factors in some kind of  formula.Without buying a  dissolved  oxy meter,anyone have  a  economical way  of to get  same levels each  time.I figure its  one more variable to  remove if I   can.

Hard to say  without tasting the beer. That being said I vote  contamination  from the fruit.I  would send a few bottles in to  next contest and  let a  developed palate  taste  it  ,and see on  the score sheet  what  the   problem  was.

p.s. Unless its  a  straw  color  beer,I would  add gyp.  I have a ph meter, and  before that strips. BUT,I generally  just  use 5.2  on  straw  color beers  and  nothing   on  any thing   else.--Unless you are  emulating a  beer  then you wil have  to break the meter  out  etc etc etc.

What i use is  a  thick   ratio--I  always use  one quart    of  liquor  per pound  of  grain.  If  graim temp is moderate,I   have a  18 degree  drop  in   temp  after doughing  in. IE   I  strike with  170  water I   get  152 mash  temp. I  would  not  waste the money  on the rice hulls  unless  I was  brewing a   beer  high in  wheat  .

if i understand the question  about  guessitamating  the vol.
 a cyl  you take ID   sq   x length in  inches   x .7854 divided  by 231  will give you gal in cyl.
Then the cone is  ID Sq  x 1/3 length in inches    times  .7854 divided by 231  wlil give the gal in the  cone and add the two together.
--ie-- look at sweat  mark  the liquid has  made on   the outside  and  get tape measure out and you can figure how  many gal  you  have.
