We're finally ready to brew today! Today I'll brew a NE-style IPA called All Ablaze, with plenty of Mosaic and Azacca hops, and plenty of oats and wheat.
The last week has seen some challenges, which has postponed this next round of brews. An issue with our steam generator that meant I had to do some repairs. And when I was ready to brew last thursday, I did my usual water adjustments (acid additions), and measured a much lower pH than calculated. So I had to do some experiments before I could adjust the water properly, and have concluded that there's been a change in the composition of the water over the past weeks since the last brews - the alkalinity of my water has decreased (if anyone is interested I could do a more more thorough post about my observations). But after careful pH adjustmens, targets should be met today, and hopefully we'll have a lovely NEIPA for you in the beginning of January
