A thousand pardons for not answering a question that's asked about three times a day and can be answered by reading the water sticky at the top of this section. Also bear in mind that it was posted on Christmas Eve when, perhaps, much of the population was spending time with their families and friends. The numbers look fine.

I was going to post a helpful response to the first post but after reading the second one, Merry Christmas.

Yeah, but someone could have at least copy and pasted something written a few years ago, or pasted a link to howtobrew.com. You know, the usual.
