How bad is this water? :(
Total Hardness 176
Sulfate (SO4 - S) 20
Carbonate (CO3) <1
Bicarbonate (HCO3) 116
Total Alkalinity 95
Electrical Conductivity 0.50
Cations / Anions 5.0 / 5.2
Nitrate 0.6 (SAFE)
This is from a different website - from the water company
Chlorine: 0.41 - 0.67 average
Chloramine: 0.6 - 1.1
To determine how much of a Campden tablet to add, do I sum Chlorine and Chloramine and get 1.75?
You can add a whole campden tablet for 20 gallons, or even 10 gallons if you want, slight overdosing won't hurt
Its not horrible. The chloride and sulfate values are moderate, so some thought on additional chloride or sulfate needs to be provided. Don't overdo it!
The alkalinity is a little high and probably needs neutralization for some beers. Visit the Water Knowledge page on the Bru'n Water website to start understanding what you should and shouldn't do to your water.
