    -> Poll #34 <- determined that the specific concentrations for Calcium, Chloride, and Sulfates. This poll will determine the recommended timing of the D-90 Syrup addition.

    When this poll is done, I will look at the data a few different ways to determine the central tendency. It may or may not be as simple as a plurality would indicate. There may or may not be a runoff. It all depends on the data.

    For those looking ahead, the next (and last) poll will determine the recommended carbonation level.

    This poll will be open for 48 hours.

    If you have issues with or suggestions for methodologies used in this project, please send them via beermail. Let's keep the threads themselves on topic to the question at hand and not about how you would have asked the question differently. Lobbying for votes and intelligent discussion of each choice's relative merits is encouraged.

    When I talked to the manufacturer they said to do 10min

    I've never used it but i would think If you add it to the boil you're going to lose some of it when you drain it to the fermenter. I usually leave 3/4 gal of junk behind so i would think sterilizing and adding it to the fermenter would be better.

    I went with flameout. That should be plenty hot enough to get it incorporated into the wort and to sterilize it (if that's even a concern), but won't boil off any of its aromas.

    Since these syrups are made via boiling, I don't think there is a huge danger of losing a lot of aroma to the boil. I usually add syrups while bringing up to a boil to minimize risk of scorching. That isn't going to win, so using the same logic, my vote will be more meaningful at flameout.

    It would be tempting to call this one for Flameout, but probably not justified. I'm going to run off 10 Minutes vs Flameout.
