Experimental Brewing 159 - pH with Martin

The subject of water and most importantly, pH can be utterly confounding. Buffering capacity, acids, salt concentrations, "measurements expressed as" and temperature add to a mix of questions that baffle even experienced brewers. We sit down with Martin Brungard to work through common questions we see online to see if we can get answers!

That was an excellent informative show and I enjoyed listing to Martin and you and Drew. I used to fret about my mash pH and I have found out that Martin's Bru'n Water spread sheet has worked well for me. It has been accurate on mash pH for me. I no longer take mash pH readings because I have been happy with the results and how the beer tastes!

Yeah, same for me. Since I switched to an all in one and no longer do strict batch sparging, I decided to rethink treating sparge water. In addition I wanted to know more about post boil pH adjustment. So the interview was based on my ow n questions. I figured that if I wanted to know, others would also.

I would like to hear more about post boil adjustments esp. for IPA.

To start with, listen to the Brew Files interview with Julian Schrago of Beechwood Brewing. He does it and makes some of the best WCIPA I've ever had. I intend to speak to him about it and will pass on what I learn.
