I should have been a bit more verbose (but I typed on the phone). I reacted to the fact that the EBC value is lower than the SRM value and my thought was that there might be a bug somewhere.

Also according to the SRM value the Amber malt is darker than I'm used to.

Re: Understanding Attenuation - White Labs 007

My experience with WLP007 is that it attenuates according go spec when OG is higher than 1.070. Once it made barley wine too attenuated so we had to dry hop it and call it a DIPA :grin:

I use two camping mats cut to fit the pot. I brew indoors and maybe lose 1C on a 90 min mash.

It depends on yeast strain I'm planning to use but I prefer the smack packs since they give early feedback if they are viable or not. But some strains are only easy available from White labs, such as Dry English Ale (used it a lot lately), Super High Gravity (failed miserably for me) and Pacific Ale...

Thanks for the calculations BBH. I think I have some more homework to do. Hmmm...Any idea what the units were for Ca and Mg? Were they ppm or ppm as CaCO3? Well, the water reports states: Magnesium(ICP) SS-EN ISO 11885 and the same for calcium. For what I can deduct from googling I would say the uni...

After 15 minutes of mashing I had pH (room temp ...

The RA is a bit confusing since EZ v2, v3 and Palmer V3 disagrees with 185, 142 and 321 respectively with 5.5g baking soda. Without the numbers are: 64, 21 and 199. I never noticed that large difference before so I suspect I entered something wrong. The malt bill is complicated since I plan to get r...

Brewing a foreign stout with left over malts tomorrow (weirdest malt bill so far).
Using my normal water adjustment routine (Ez water calc + Palmer sheet) except I won't add the baking soda unless I need to raise the pH.

Search for "Waterproof PH meter Temperature High Accuracy" from the seller gainexpress on ebay.

Edit: I bought my refractometer from the same seller a year ago so I trust them.

Since I started using a 500W BBQ igniter in the pot I get an excellent boil on my induction stove. Just make sure you connect it via a RCD (as google taught me its called, direct translated from Swedish it would be "earth error circuit breaker").

BIAB from the start 6 months ago. BIAB brew #14 planned tomorrow.

When I started reading to learn about brewing I came across Braumeister systems and thought for myself: "Can I do the same with a pasta strainer in my kettle?". Then I stumbled upon BIAB and this site and the rest is history :-)

Hi Marcus from Sweden here. Have not yet brewed a single beer. Ordered equipment last Saturday and going to start BIAB right away to simplify the mashing/sparging.
