Overshot Mash PH

(1/5) > >>

davidgzach:
I was trying to hit 5.2 and used a little too much acid malt and hit 5.1.  What are the effects?

hopfenundmalz:
Not much, the worst that could happen is that the beer might be slightly sharp in taste, I don't think it will end up tart.

Could that be a good thing for a Bohemian Pilsner?

nateo:
5.1 is fine. I remember Kai saying something about how a higher mash pH can create a lower kettle pH. So the relationship between beer pH and mash pH isn't as intuitive as you might think.

denny:
I wouldn't be as worried about the pH as about the effects of 5.2 on the beer flavor.
