  • 52 pH Stabilizer 1lb

    52 pH Stabilizer 1lb

    5.2 is a proprietary blend of food grade buffers that will lock in your mash and kettle water at a pH of 5.2 regardless of the starting pH of your water. It is safe for your mash and will not add any flavours to your beer. It will optimize the enzymatic activity of your malt, help clarify your wort, and often raise your starting gravities. In the boil it will give you consistent hop usage.

            THE GRAINFATHER ALL-IN-ONE BEER BREWING SYSTEM
The system allows you to mash at high extract efficiency by utilizing a pump for easy recirculating of the wort through the mashing process. The grain bed is then easily raised out of the kettle to provide for sparging and draining of the grains. Your mash tun then becomes an electric boil kettle. The mash temperature and boil are all controlled precisely with an electric heating element. The system comes with a digital temperature controller so you can adjust temperature of your mash with-in a degree. This allows for step mashing.  This whole 8 gallon system is extremely compact so it makes for easy indoor or outdoor brewing.  Another added feature is the brewing system can also double as a reflux or pot still. All you need to do is attach the appropriate reflux or pot still top which is also available.
