Every time I brew I tell myself I will ask the experts on here… When you measure your mash ph (if you do…), do you take it off the top or from the bottom of the tun (output valve). Today I tried from the bottom and measured a 5.05, then a minute or two max after that I stirred and took some from the top and got my typical 5.28.
I am just curious how everyone else does it. Maybe I should have cycled some wort through the bottom before taking the sample. I would like to figure out a good way to do it. I did stir it pretty well before both samples.
