What is the thinking behind dissolving the Brewtan in a wort slurry for the boil addition? Is that really necessary?
So a discussion in another thread about the perception if increased roast flavor in LODO beer ha me questioning the role of Brewtan B as a factor. Brewtan B is tannic acid. Aren't roasted malts roasty because of tannins? If so, could the increase in tannins due to tannic acid increase the roasty flavor perceptions? Or does the tannic acid in Brewtan Breact with other compounds that make it into somethings that is no longer tannic acid? Or are tannins not what make roasted malts have the roasted flavor?
Last Sunday, I brewed a Rochefort 4 with lodo techniques and BTB. I noticed the trub was much more compact than usually, and so more clear wort could be racked off as a nice side effect. Is this lodo, BTB, combination of the two?

I just ordered a 50 gram packet of BrewTan B from iBrew.com.au.I use a Tower of Power recirculating system to brew 2.5gal BIAB batches. What would you recommend for my dosage?I know the standard amount is 1/4tsp per 5gal in the strike water and 1/2tsp per 5gal in the boil. My mash volume varies based on my grain bill to get me to my target pre-boil volume, but it hovers around 5gal. As for other volumes:I aim for 4.25gal pre-boil volume for a 60min boil & 4.75gal for a 90min boil. Post-boil I shoot for 3.25gal with 3gal going into the fermenter.
Of course that is correct. Here in Europe we despise people that use teaspoons to measure things
What I did I weight it in grams and scale it to the depending volume. If anyone can correct me if this is the correct procedure?.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
