Yet Another Ward Lab Thread
Here's what I knew about my water before the test. Bad.
We use a softener, and recently installed an RO - though the water for the test was not from the RO tap because I wanted to see how the "regular" levels were.
I currently brew from bottled water, but was hoping to be able to use the tap if necessary. I suppose I need to submit an RO sample to Ward, too.
I have the Bru'n Water spreadsheet, but I'm still absorbing the documentation - so if any water experts care to dissect my results with a cursory review
