Mash Chemistry and Brewing Water Calculator

Inspired by guest Mike from Zebulon Astizan Ales on Experimental Brewing E95. NEIPA with 8 oz Chinook @ whirlpool and 8oz dry hop.

update changed hop bill to split whirlpool addition and added a late addition per Scott Janish episode on Brulosophy.

Whirlpool hop utilization % estimated per:

Single infusion mash at 153°F for 60 minutes. Adjust mash pH with phosphoric acid (target 5.3 pH). Lauter then boil for 55 minutes (cut 5 min short due to new stove/setup w/higher boil off rate). After flameout, chill to 195°F and add whirlpool hops (10 minute contact time) hop addition. Knockout. Pitch yeast starter along with. Ferment at 68°F. Add dry hop at high krausen (day 2/3). Rack to keg and force carbonate to 2.6 vol. (5.2 g/L) CO2.

Great aroma. Smooth* and sessionable NEIPA. Color is bright yellow with slight orange hue. Getting a bit of astringency or chalky-ness. Not sure if it's related to the higher than expected calcium levels (~145 ppm) or hop bitterness. Beer was abused post kegging with way too much oxygen exposure due to many failed attempts at clearing a clogged dip tube. Tried clearing many times, then trimmed dip tube, then finally transfer to a new keg via pouring directly into the keg.....sad times. That being said, oxidation doesn't appear to be a major issue with the beer (at least at this time).
