Anyone here know about the water quality in the Syracuse area? I am in Van Buren and my water comes from Otisco and Ontario lakes. I want to start all grain soon and am wondering if I should be adding anything to the water before I mash. Anyone around here get their water from these lakes?

it is about $25 I think, but the best way to know what is in your specific water for brewing:

I did the w-5 but I think you could get away with the w-6

http://www.wardlab.com/FeeSchedule/WaterAnalysis.aspx

the results look like this for me:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/need...01/index4.html

see post 39 for my water results (I am on a well).


Also, this thread is sort of dead - you may want to repost on the Syracuse grain buy #5 to see if anyone in your area has done this yet. I would say you are fine to mash unless you can't drink you water without plugging your nose If you have a water softener you would won't to address the chorine, etc., with cambden. Some other guys on here have done that, but I ahven't since I don't have that issue.

My water is clsoest to the dublin style.

Thanks. I know my water is hard and we have a softener but we have never used it. I'll definitely check it out. Thanks!
