Default Brewing my first all grain

I've read through the water priming sticky but I'm still a little confused.. I plan on brewing my first all grain this weekend and I want to the water right. I am going to use distilled water and I wanted to know just how much calcium chloride and gypsum to use.

Punch in your grain bill into this calculator and put in your additions to where you are in the lower end of the recommended levels for your first brew:

Use increments in teaspoons to make it easy:

Calcium Chloride = 3.4grams per tsp
Magnesium Sulfate (epsom salt) = 4.5 grams per tsp
calcium carbonate (gypsm) = 1.8 grams per tsp

1/2 to 1 tsp calcium chloride per 5 gallons treated. Of 1/2 to 1 tsp calcium sulfate per 5 gallons or 1/2 tsp of each. Depends on whether you like sulfate or not.
