Running pears through a good juicer is another option.

Some of that information is either mistyped or falsely reported. Ferulic acid takes far less time to be created in the 113F than 1 hour.

Reported test of 45C ferulic acid test

5.6mg/L @ 15m
6.6mg/L @ 30m
6.8mg/L @ 60m

Likewise a 4VGmg/L end of fermentation

0.62mg/L @ 30m
0.62mg/L @ 60m

All Grain Brewing / Re: PH Increase Post-Boil vs Pre-Boil
« Last post by brewinhard on June 26, 2017, 11:35:03 AM »
I've never measured PH throughout the entire process but thought I would tonight.  Here are the PH numbers:
Mash PH:  5.16   (15-20 minutes after start of mash)
Pre-Boil PH:  5.17 (after fly sparge)
Post-boil PH:  5.9

What the hell happened?  What would cause an increase in PH?  Has anyone ever seen this before?

Grain bill was simple 100% maris otter.  Hop schedule was just a bunch of Cryo hops for a 15 minute hop stand at flameout.  Nothing else. 

Could the trub and hop oils from the hop stand be impacting the readings?  Or is this something process oriented that's increasing PH?

Don't mean to ask a stupid question, but I am assuming you cooled your post boil final pH sample?

Based on your other thread I'd say the meter is wonky, possibly bad electrode or maybe bad calibration solution.  That's a HUUUGE change.  I predict the beer is fine...
Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Two fermenters one temp. probe?

You could also sandwich the probe between both fermenters too.

What a sweet looking patio. Congrats!
Doesn't this discussion also depend on whether or not one can keep all of your bottled beer cold? 

Storing one keg in a fridge is much easier than keeping 40 bottles of beer cold after conditioning which can greatly affect oxidation rates.
