i wonder if you're getting good readings on that PH meter.


My thoughts exactly. You need to work to get a pH that low.

yeah I've never had something that low. And while I don't know for sure, Martin and some readings suggest conversion would be pretty sub par at that low of mash PH, and yet he exceeded his target.

Justin- did you measure your gravity...just curious how well conversion was if your PH was really that low.

Yes, Estimated Pre- boil OG was 1.042, I hit 1.044.
Estimated Post- boil OG was 1.052, I hit 1.050.

i wonder if you're getting good readings on that PH meter.

I read skimming hot break foam at beginning of boil makes for a clearer finished beer.  I have never done that.  Do you skim?

Nope.  It's an old, totally disproven myth.

how about big foot.....i want to believe he's running around your neck of the woods  ;D

Oh, yeah...he's TOTALLY real!  ;)

I've see him.....

Frank, that might be the reddest beer I've ever seen. What was your grist ?

The lighting is perfect....and I enhanced the photo a touch  :P. It's more of a natural amber color.

You kardashianed your beer photo

Sounds tasty anyway frank.

JT-  I don't think that's the likely contributor...I didn't always do that.  I do think it's a multitude of things the help. I've also been thinking about leaving the fatty oils behind in the kettle...head killers.  I literally leave all trub behind...I work very hard to transfer clear wort.   I know experiments show now impact on flavor, but wonder about its impact on foam.....just an assumption at this point.

Good to know as well.  You siphoning after boil or using a kettle dip tube?

I cool wort and let it set for about 30minutes. Then siphon off the trub. My wort is super clear every time.

Mine was about 75 or 80% carbed, but delicious.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Adjusting Mash PH and Mash Temperature Loss
« on: March 12, 2016, 12:58:09 PM »
well for me, i've noticed it move that direction, not necessarily land at 5.4.  if I target 5.25, and first PH reading is say 5.18, i leave it alone and it moves up at or near my intended target some point during the mash.  same thing like what happened today-only the inverse. i started out 5.54 with target of 5.45, and the PH landed at 5.42 when measured at end of mash.
