Water Report

well, i have no idea what i'm looking at here...so everyone how does this look. i mostly brew hoppy beers, but i also tend to brew browns, stouts, steam...you name it.

Well its very simple...Your water report doesn't tell you anything you need to know!(With the exception of lead which is low). Mine is very similar. What you need to do is call your water provider and they will gladly tell you Ca, Mg, HCO, etc.

Evan,

When you find out, could you update this thread for us apathetic types so we don't have to call?

Thanks!!

When you call, ask to speak to a chemist from the lab, otherwise the receptionist will refer you to the report you've already seen Explain why you want this information, otherwise they might think your some sort of wacko.
