Keep in mind my mash of 5.5 dropped over 2 hours to around 5.41. 2ml in kettle and for 10.75# grist is no issue at all and dropped to 5.26.2mL brought you down from 5.4 to 5.26? I guess that sounds about right... I've been using about 3mL, but then again, I'm still playing the guessing game without a meter. I figure it's a safe zone for Kai's .5mL per pound of grist. If that were the case, I'd be adding like 4.5mL for most grists. That seems like a lot.Yeah, weather has gone to hell in a hand basket. We had 60 mph cold winds yesterday, damaged some roofs in the neighborhood. We got lucky. Crazy.
yeah crazy. good brew day though for my dort. new steam stick worked great, nailed PH for 2-step at 5.5, and as Martin has described the PH phenomena, by end of 2 hours PH was 5.41. 95% mash efficiency, and I added 2ml lactic to kettle for final PH of 5.26...perfect.
Cool. I really like the steam infusion idea.
working great. new copper steam stick attached to stir paddle did the trick- 1.42F per minute heat rise.
Love the copper steam stick idea.
We had some crazy winds here in Iowa yesterday too. It really is crazy and I'm getting rather annoyed with the 40-50 degree temp swings, being a bike commuter...
