Raising pH - slaked lime

Started this discussion. Last reply by Tilt Apr 8, 2014. 2 Replies

With a recent brew being a dry stout, and a few more stouts in the line up over winter, I've become interested in counteracting acidity in the mash. As I work my way through Palmer and Kaminski's…Continue

Tilt replied to James Millar's discussion 60L stainless steel conical fermenter
"Imagine you'll be sorry to let this go.  What are the dimensions? - total height including blow off tube and width at widest point? Does it manage pressure ferments and transfers? Also what does the inside look like? Thanks"

"Hi Mark, I'd recommend stainox after getting in on Tims deal last time. Im up for a few more kg if you've got room for another punter and you're based in Auckland."

Tilt replied to Ben Dean's discussion Guava in secondary
"Yeah - I'd bump the amount of fruit up if you can. Alternative is to only make 10l of it... But that would just be crushing if it turns out to be a stunner. To prep the fruit I froze for a few weeks and then 'blanched' the still…"

"I had a go at a guava beer a while back - I was really happy with the light tart fruit and brilliant clarity/colour in the finished beer - picked up a bronze in the NHC to as a bonus.  I used half a batch of a mainly wheat grist beer fermented…"

Tilt replied to Nicholas Jones's discussion Lazy Brewing
"How were your results hit and miss with the no-chill?  It took me a couple of goes to nail the bitterness adjustments but after that I reckon N/C produces the same results as conventional chill and pitch for malt focused beers."

Tilt replied to Nicholas Jones's discussion Lazy Brewing
"I no chill / cube for most of my brews as a matter of course these days. The main reason is to save time, but also partly to not use all the water I used to chilling with my immersion chiller.  I usually brew a double batch (45ish litres post…"

Barley and Sours study tour

I've just stumbled across a great write up by a Tasmanian brewer (Two Metre Tall)  of his  dream tour of maltings and sour beer producers across the UK, Europe and the US.  This bloke has a great outlook, coming from  a wine making background, looking to push the boundaries in the Oz beer world.  His Churchill fellowship paper…See More

Mark replied to Tilt's discussion Gladfields for English styles
"I've started using Gladdies in all my beers, and have found the ale malt works well in the English styles. It's perhaps a little more neutral than MO, but then so is Golden Promise to my taste. You could add a touch of their biscuit or…"

"Hey mate I was in Brewers Coop the other day and they had special pricing on (I think it was Warminster) floor malted grain from the UK.  Personally I've found floor malting to make a hugh difference to the 'maltiness' of a base…"

DMAC replied to Tilt's discussion Gladfields for English styles
"Plenty of commercial craft brewers use gladfields so has to be pretty good right. I read somewhere that it is more aromatic as it is fresher than the imported stuff. Also, realistically what can English maltsters do that is better than what they can…"
