    I guess what I'm looking for here is more specificity.

    Let's say I'm using a 60 or 90bbl tank with 3:2 height to width ratio. I finish the fermentation of an ale at 70F and set the spunding valve...

    I do the same thing as you -- adjust the mash to get my desired mash ph, then adjust in the kettle again while waiting for the boil to begin. I like a low boil ph because of what it does to the...
