Measuring & Testing
Ensure consistency from batch to batch of your homebrew. Properly measuring and controlling your temperature, pH, and quantities of ingredients in your batches will help you repeat that delicious recipe the next time, and will help you diagnose off-flavors and undesirable characteristics. Fermenting at proper temperatures will reduce ester production, giving your beer a cleaner flavor. Maintaining a proper mash pH will increase the efficiency of your mash.
