I got this from the local water treatment manager after some fishing around...
Calcium – Range < readable limit – 6.0 mg/l
Magnesium - < readable limit
Sodium – 7.3 mg/l
Chloride – 6.0 mg/l
Sulfate – 5.3 mg/l
Ammonia – not tested
Nitrite - < readable limit
pH – Field Range 6.9 – 7.3
Hardness as CaCO3 – range 12.0mg/l – 18.0mg/l
Alkalinity as CaCO3- range 12.0 – 20.0mg/
Any result with a range is something that is tested frequently.
Using the calculators listed in the stickies (http://nomograph.babbrewers.com/
) it looks as though my water is best suited for lighter colored beers. Am I correct? I realize that I'm inputting CaCO3 instead of HCO3 though.....
I'm not trying to get into making additions just yet but I want to know where I stand AS IS.
