Cool!  And an iPad app!

Does anyone know of a temp/pH correction chart?  For instance, if the pH is supposed to be a certain number at 70F, I want to find out what it is at 60F.

Have a good Recipe for a ryebock?

Just use about 15-20% rye malt in place of the base malt (usually Munich).

So far I have no wage, but then I'm not brewing, but plumbing, electrical and construction. Some day I will brew. Will I get paid? I hope so but I have complete creative control.

I'd say that in brewing it's the customers who pretty much have creative control.  You can try something creative, but if they don't buy it, they'll dictate what you create.

What would be a good recipe to use rye in. Other than a ipa?

Rye bock is really good.

Exactly so the amount of grains and speciality grains is increased which would "hide" the hops. The amount of speciality to the hops is different

IF the OG remains the same, the hops don't get adjusted.  If the OG changes, the hops get adjusted to maintain the same IBU as the original recipe.

Thanks, Tom.  Obviously I didn't remember that, but a lot of the flavorings Rogue uses come from extract, so I assumed it was a safe guess.

If I adjust a recipe, I adjust all the grains the same way.  I want to maintain the original % of grains relative to each other.

I absolutely do not believe that lower efficiency leads to better beer.  For one thing, my own experience doesn't bear that out.  For another example, Sierra Nevada targets and gets darn close to 100% efficiency.  Their beers do not suck.

Ah, see, that's the problem!  Since I don't measure my mill gap, the rye doesn't know it's not supposed to get a good crush or stick the runoff!  Very clever, that rye malt!  ;)

Goodbye, Doc, and thanks.  Got to work with him twice and he was a true gentleman.

Okay thanks guys, I built my mash tun on Denny's design, so I'll just go about my mash as I normally do.

What about milling? I can see the rye grains are smaller than the barley, should I set my gap smaller or would that damage the barley husks too much? (BTW I bought my grain bill all in one bag).

I have my mill set to a very narrow gap and mill barley and rye together.  No problems on either one.

"Rice hulls, rice hulls, rice hulls"...

 - Randy Mosher

Your efficiency will drop a few points. RDWHAHB.

I have never needed rice hulls with rye beers and that includes beers up to 45% rye.  Neither have I seen an efficiency drop.  How much does yours drop?

When I asked pretty much the same thing, the answer is that pH is read at room temp.  So, 5.4 at room temp is what you're looking for.  Unless of course I totally misunderstood....
