I forgot to ask....I bought a packet of Burton water salts at the LHBS, figuring I'd play around with them. I can't figure out how to use them in Bru'n water. Is there a way?

There is no telling what their definition of mineral additions the supplier used to formulate their Burton water salts. So you're better off with the individual components that are listed in the water adjustment menu. You should have gypsum and calcium chloride on hand at a minimum. The other minerals are your choice. If you have low alkalinity water, having pickling lime on hand is helpful too. If you have high alkalinity water, then an acid is essential. Lactic and phosphoric are popular.

I have Gypsum, Chalk, Epsom Salt, Baking Soda, Calcium Chloride, and Lactic acid all on hand now. I figured I'll need it all eventually, so just went to LHBS and bought one of everything, which is how I also ended up with those Burton water salts. Maybe they'll make a nice foot-soaking solution, preferably while drinking.

I just emailed you the beer I'm working on.
