The recent move has been a lot of work, a lot of fun, and has had no shortage of headaches. Last week, I intended to stop by the city utilities office for a copy of the water report, but I never got around to it. Well, guess what was waiting for me in the mailbox today?! I guess they send a copy of the report to all new customers. I was about to be disappointed in yet another water report containing only contaminant levels, but then I read page 5:
Sweet! They must know I brew! I already knew that the tap water is fairly hard, but it tastes pretty good, so I was looking forward to getting some specifics. According to Palmer's graphs and spreadsheets
, this water is solidly in the ESB to stout range. With a little acid and/or brewing salts, I should be able to adjust the water to nearly any profile. Also, it appears that the treatment facility uses chlorine rather than chloramine - more good news. Now I need to brew!
