From what I've seen I think lower is good for dryer beers, higher is good for sweeter beers. But as a first go round? You will probably be pleased with the results.

Right on, I did use a higher Munich 11L. I may have been close to the low 5.4 PH which is within the +/- .05 of the meter.

Yup, first time using lactic acid, salts and testing my mash PH. Always checked for conversion using the iodine test. Been happy with the final products but I wanted my standard IPA recipe to *pop* a bit more. I adjusted my chloride (34) to sulfate (74) as a starting point and adjusted for mash PH which according to EZ Water would have been at 5.73 as is.
