All Grain Brewing / Re: Introduction to Low Oxygen Brewing

How do add the sauergut?  I have always added it in the mash. Wouldn't that add unwanted starch and husk material into the kettle?

What is the thought process of limiting the boil losses to 10%? Why wouldn't a more vigorous boil devoid the wort of any remaining O2?

Also, if I had a few extra bucks burning a hole in my pocket, which DO meters would be good choices?

Hmmmm.  Got a 38.5 for my mbos Hefe but a 0 for my RIS. does that mean they lost it or it wasn't judged?  It scored a 44 and a 1st place in the first round.........

The more I thought about it the more I started wondering why.

Thanks

All Grain Brewing / Re: Question for those with recirculating mash.
« on: May 27, 2016, 11:37:11 AM »
I have a Blichmann tower of power and I recirc the entire time. I do stir the mash about half way through just to be sure I have a homogenous mash. Other than that I leave it alone.

Looking for an economical one that I can use for not only aerating (oxygenating) wort before pitching, but also to follow the controversial aspects of low O2 brewing that have been discussed lately on this site.

I know some are quite expensive, but I was curious which models other homebrewers have tried and their opinions and recommendations.

Equipment and Software / DO meters

With Father's Day coming up, I thought I might ask for a DO meter.  Does anybody have experience with the different meters or a recommendation?

The Finals flight for melomel is like a list of NHC Major Award winners. I should probably just drink mine.

If you do, send me the other 2!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Anyone use Iodophor for cleaning?
« on: January 26, 2016, 08:54:23 PM »
I have access to 10% povidone-iodine solution.  How is this different?  Can it be used in a similar manner to iodophor?  On the package it states that it has 1% titratable iodine.  Inactive ingredients are listed as citric acid, disodium phosphate, nontoxynol-9 and sodium hydroxide.

I have this formula for the dilution of iodophor:   V = (0.0025*19L)/XX% where XX is the concentration of your solution, 0.0025 is 25ppm as a percentage, 19L is approximately 5 gallons, and V is the volume of your solution you need to add to five gallons of water.

If it is ok to use, do I base the dilution on the titratable percentage of 1% or 10%?

Thanks for your help!

When it happened to me, there was a layer of the starsan on top and the beer below. I carefully racked the lower beer to a keg. It won a medal at a competition.
So just wait and see. It might be fine.
