Backset

Postby moonmouse » Mon Jul 03, 2017 8:10 pm

How much backset is to much?
I've just knocked up a quick 1st gem cfw and in my haste I poured about 50% backset in....
Anyone shed some light on optimum amount and the pros and cons
Cheers

Probably some debate on "optimum" amount of backset but yeah 50% is on the very high side.

Got a PH meter at all? I assume that is gen 2 that you just started with it?

Yeah if you have another fermenter split it in half and dilute back and add some more sugar and grain etc :handgestures-thumbupleft:
