I'm guessing that the spots are an alkaline scale such as calcium or magnesium carbonate. Both PBW and Straight-A have a pretty good amount of alkaline carbonate in them already, so they certainly won't help the problem (and if you're in a hard water area, it might make it worse). To remove a scale, you need acid. Vinegar is a mild and easy, although stinky, solution. 25% Phosphoric is a good way to go as well (say 1 part of your 85% that you have for acidifying the mash to 2 parts water). If it's a light scale, a single rinse will do it. If it's heavy, you might need a soak. Rick Theiner LOGIC, Inc. www.ecologiccleansers.com Return to table of contents
Date: Fri, 26 Sep 2003 17:32:33 +0200 From: "jens maudal" <jens.maudal at start.no> Subject: Recipie book I have just recieved my last book on beer recipes "Beer Captured" by Tess and Mark Szamatulski and i thought i should see if i could find some familiar beers here. I looked up 2 beers that i have made myself many times and i think i do make them much according to how they are made at their respective breweries. A) Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier This beer is supposedly made with 100% rauchmalt, i have tried using the malt from Weiermann and it makes a superb Schlenkerla clone, i add a little chocolate for colour. B) Einbecker Ur-bock Here it should be at least 70% munich malt, probaly the dark type (this i cant get) the rest pilsner and chocolate for colour. The recipies in the book are entierly different, the Schlenkerla contains only 28% german Rauch malt, the rest is pilsner and mynchener and of all things belgian cara-munich malt this is not very likely for a schlenkerla clone. The Einbecker in the book has only 45% munich malt and the rest pilsner malt + a little belgian cara munich and belgian biscuit. I find it odd that these recipies are so different to the content in the original beers they are trying to clone. Its well known what these two beers conist of as far as malts go. Have anybody else noticed this, and it makes me wonder if the other recipes have the same odd contents. Cheers Jens Jens P.

Date: Fri, 26 Sep 2003 15:57:49 -0400 From: "Joe Berardino" <misbrewhaven at hotmail.com> Subject: Flying Dog Pale Ale Clone I am trying to clone the Flying Dog Pale Ale. Between drinking it and looking at their web site I have a vague idea of how to start out, but am still relativley new to the craft and could use a little help. If any one has a clone recipe for this or could at least get me in the ball park with a recipe I sure would appreciate it. A private responce would be fine at misbrewhaven at hotmail.com Oh and btw I am just the lowly extract brewer currently, I have to pay for a wedding berfore the fiance will let me buy all of the needed equipment for all grain brewing. :-( Thanks, Joe B.
