    The "Back of the Napkin" math behind mash pH adjustments

    The general back of the napkin formula is: Delta_pH = mEq's/(BC x Kg) Where: BC = buffering capacity, in units of mEq/Kg_pH Kg = Kilograms of grist being mashed Delta_pH = pH_Initial - pH_Target mEq's = the number of milliequivalents of acid or base required to move the pH to the target. Some...
