Are you guys both still using recirculated systems?

How did you deal with the shear stress on the wort from pumping?

Today's pre boil sample pH 5.2 pre boil gravity 1051 I know that's really high but I had a Brewhouse efficiency problem which I think I corrected by extending my rest periods for the infusion steps

Yes. Bryan has an Electric FCV and I have a DC pump with voltage controlled flow. Have you had issues with pump induced shear stress in your system?

Sorry m8, but you didn't answer a simple question but resorted to refer to a third party instead.

The question was quite simple. What flavours are you looking for. When the response is not a reply but name dropping someone's outfit, well, what sort of response did you expect?

I was going for a nice easy drinking German lager, still chasing that stuttgarter hofbrau pilsner, weyenstephaner is still the closest I have tasted yet.

I am making beer I like to drink, I'm not the type to try to make beer everyone else wants to drink. I'm brewing for me, but I'm happy to share these creations.
