Also, sometimes less pressure is better. Only tighten until everything is just snug. Too much pressure could warp one of the o rings and lead to a leak.
A pre-boil pH of 5.4-5.5 is a good target. The cast out pH should be around 5.2-5.4.
As for beer pH, it will depend on the beer style. My lagers tend to be around 4.3 and ales are a bit less.
I have never had a black IPA that I thought was worth the glass it was served in. Just a style that clashes in every way to my taste buds.
Agreed. I've had a number of commercial black IPAs, some with a schwarzbier-like roastiness and others with a robust stout-like roastiness. If there's not enough roast, I feel like I'm drinking a regular IPA and wondering why it's black, but if there's too much I just taste roast and why wonder it's called an IPA. Not to say that they can't be good beers, I'd much rather have a nice American IPA followed by a nice stout.
my heart starts racing and skipping beats.
