Ingredients / Re: Deionized water for brewing?
« on: June 02, 2016, 05:19:31 PM »
Good point. It concerned me because stainless steel pipes are needed to move DI water. I wasn't sure how those properties would effect the mash, if at all.

Ingredients / Deionized water for brewing?
« on: June 02, 2016, 04:46:24 PM »
Hey all,
  I might have access to deionized water for brewing. I brew all grain. The water is put through a water softener then an RO filter then finally through the DI filter.
  I realize I would have to add minerals as I would when using RO water. Is there a reason I couldn't use deionized water?

Cheers,
Brandon

Great to hear you are kicking cancer's butt. Excellent score on the yeast! Looking forward to the results.

I've used Brazil Bob-o-link with good results as well as Ethiopian. I agree that Mexican / Central American coffees would be a good choice as well. Freshness of the coffee is key. I would highly suggest buying it from a coffee shop that roasts their own.

My wife & I are traveling to Chicago this weekend. Are there any breweries / brewpubs that you would recommend? Goose Island is close to where we are staying so we'll probably check that out. Any other good ones to check out?

Out of curiosity how long does it take to ramp from one temp to another on the Zymatic?

Those are all some great looking stashes. I should really start my own Christmas stash. Although, everytime I get a bomber of something I'm so excited I end up drinking it right away.

I guess I'll find out how this recipe turns out without crystal malt in it. All my previous American IPA recipes have had some. Although I also have reduced the amount of crystal malt over the years.

Good points on the blending base malts. I also like the idea of omitting crystal malt from American IPA/APA.

Sounds like a fun brew day. FWIW I've done decoction for some lagers. It's not difficult. It just takes extra time. Not sure that it really effects the flavor. Although, if you don't pull a large enough decoction then you don't hit your temp.

I only had 7.8kg of Maris Otter. That's why I added the pilsen malt. Incidentally, the pilsen malt is the only other base malt I had in the house. I hope it helps balance it out.
