Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator
  • Brew day 26 may sunday
  • target Ph is 5.35 (that's with 10 ml of lactic asic).
    -I corrected hop stand utilisation to 12% from 10% becasue my NEIPA semed more bitter than the 52 IBUs it was supposed to be.
  • strike was was 76c but when mashed in I had 69c, so I stirred for a couple more minutes till it dropped to 67c.
  • With 10 ml of lactic acid, BF calculated 5.35 mash ph but I got 4.93-4.95 Ph. A second test 5 minutes later was 5.0 ph.Why? last time with 10 ml I was spot on. does not make sense.
  • pre boil gravity is 1046. FG 1050. 62% eff. Shit, despite doing 2 sparges.
    -The most pale beer ever and fairly clear going into fermenter.
  • dry hopped on day 6 (Sat) and racked to pet carboy. gravity was 1020. Bubbling had been slow so I was very surprised to open ferm and see a creamy head of crousin. Very little trub and I dumped yeast on bottom into secondary. For a couple of days bubbling very vigorous in secondary and having to clear jars.
  • day 10 Wed, Gravity is 1015.
  • day 11 Thur. Pulled hops out after 5 days of DH. They still smell amasing and fresh so perhaps should have left in.
  • 154 gr sugar priming at 18c for for 2.4 co2, which worked fine when I last used this yeast (NEIPA).
    -Bottled day 14 Sunday. 1012 FG (5 % ABV). Aroma promenant and promissing as is taste. A nbit more bitter than expected relitive to 33IBUs, but may smooth out. Pale as expected but strangly cloudy as london ale III is supposed to floculate well. No heat belt as it's June.
    TASTING: Uhm. Not sure what happened here, but it didn't work too well. Not off flavours, but just a bit odd and no appealing. I ws learning and screwing about with water profile and a yeast I'd not used, so could have been anything here.
