Been brewing for a bit over a year and there is a strange taste of excess bitterness in my beer. At first I thought I was using to much bitterning hops but that is not the case. I feel my sanitation is up to par. I want to improve the taste and started researching the water profile
I've been using tap water and brewing extract 1/2 boil partial mash and/or steeping grain. Hoping to move to full boil all grain in the next few months.
I've downloaded the EZ water adjustment calculator and it states my residual alkalinity is negative 27 and my chloride to sulfate is .44
I watch Bobby_M videos and have some idea on how to work this spreadsheet but if anyone can help w/ water adjustments for a balanced to malty beer would be appreciated.
Planing on brewing a southern English ale next.
