      Is it nessisary to use gypsum and acid powered to mess with the ph of my wash. Seem to involved for a simple blue moon corn likker. Does annoying do this. If so what ph should my wash be at. If someone recommends it then maybe I should look into it.
      Simple recipe
      Corn malt
      2 row barely malt ground

      Mash pH is important in all grain mashes, however you can make good mash without worrying about pH- you can make a better mash by adjusting the PH.
      Try and keep the pH of the mash between 5.2-5.5. I try and keep it on the lower end at around 5.2.

      Thanks for the info. I only ran a sugar wash threw my pot a few times. Now I’m interested in flavor. I want to try a few grain runs before I tachle the fruits. Just didn’t want to go through the hassle of trying to find acid blends and gypsum. But thank you very much for the tip

      If you are just starting off- don’t worry about the PH. It will turn out fine. Once you have the process dialed in you can start playing with the PH
