Thanks mateTry this
I've pm'd argon to see if he's tweaked this recipe at all but am yet to hear back, I assume, because he hates me. Anyway's, does anybody else know if the recipe as it appears in the database the one to go with? I hear it pretty close to LCPA which is why I'm using it. Just trying to show an...aussiehomebrewer.com
Thanks for sharing. It looks tasty. I’ve got a couple of questions about the salts if you don’t mind.Try this one, very close to LCPA on tap. This one comes out at 4.7%. You could increase the grain to get it to 5.2% as per original LCPA.
Frankly the whole recipe isn't much like LCPA! I have had a long conversation with a brewer who was making the first version (still the best) that's very much what the recipe in BrewBuilder is based on.Thanks for sharing. It looks tasty. I’ve got a couple of questions about the salts if you don’t mind.
1. What is the purpose of the baking soda and chalk? Is there a particular water profile you are aiming for? I was under the impression that adding carbonates was generally undesirable, unless perhaps you had a really acidic grain bill (eg lots of dark malt) or water source. But if that were the case you wouldn’t have needed the acid malt.
2. Why add salts to the boil? Ca helps with mash efficiency but the boil is too late for that.
