    Thanks Dick,
    The mash pH is now reaching 5.6-5.7 sometimes 5.8 - I am adding 40-50 ml of Phos acid to bring down the pH. All the beers that we are brewing are now reporting slightly higher pH. What...

    Hi Rodrigo,
    Did you get to try the malt? There seems to be no posts on Swaen malts here except yours so I had to revive this post. I have recently heard about them from a friend at Brau, and they...

    Yes that's probably the reason I am looking to change over. What about their base and speciality malts? Did you find much difference from Weyermann?

    Hi Phil

    How is it going? I guess you had come down to Windmills earlier, if I am not wrong?. I was on leave back then. So far I have heard only good stuff about IREKS and think its time to give it a go....

    Hey guys, anyone here can give me some review on IREKS German base and speciality Malt.?
    They have quite a range of speciality malts.
    How would you rate this against Weyermann?
    We find supply...

    Avangard

    Yes Indeed.. We compacted our bed couple of times too and got quite high Plato readings(than usual) on our last runnings. Finally got a VFD to control the flow rate on vorlauf and lauter so the...

    same

    Awaiting some feedback on this malt too Sauce.
    Seems to be less expensive than most. Can't wait to try, most say it gives you more extract than you expect.
    Any trials on your end?

    Thanks Dick. I do have a copy of Bru'n water excel sheet but I'm usually in a half mind to risk a batch. I have experimented with CaCl2 in two batches of the same stout recipe (in an attempt to...

    Thanks for stating all the possibilites Dick. Have you brewed near here before?
    I agree with a couple of possiblites. I think since I am treating my water with R.O i'm stripping the water off of...
  17. Foamy beer dispense due to unsettled proteins during cold crashing?

    I was just wondering if the beer dispense can get foamy due to proteins unable to coagulate or settle out completely during cold crashing??
    I usually had very foamy beers dispensing out of my taps...

    BrewinLou, Your assumption is right we have one fixed speed for rakes. I stop the rakes post transfer else it won't allow the bed to settle and use it only while sparging and rest it again. Your...

    Phil, 2 hours is brilliant time but so far we have only managed to come down to 8 and closest we have been able to. I will try out your technique of slowing the rakes instead of stopping them all...

    Thanks Dick,

    About the rakes, they are non adjustable, and remain at a fixed place and run at fixed speed. Like you said, they turn the bed and not actually cut to make channels. We use the rakes...

    Yes we have ordered for 2 VFD's ... One for rakes the other for the pump in the picture
  23. Rakes

    Rakes is a problem, especially when we sparge, they spin too fast and so we have to vorlauf again to achieve the clarity of first running and allow time again for the bed to settle. I am guessing...

    No vorlauf line nor any line to pump into the kettle at present. But even if I do cut back on the outlet valve with a VFD, I doubt if the pump can provide sufficient suction through the grant. The...

    Oh yes and there are currently no VFD's so our new PLC under construction will have 2 VFD's one for the rakes and one for the pump
