you get your nitro tap pouring correctly? If so, I may need you to check out what the hell I'm doing wrong with mine!

Not yet. I think the line I put in is too long (10'). Also I'm having trouble with the mini fridge I used. I need to grab a temp control from work. I'll figure it out.

Is there anyone brewing in Jenkintown Pa that could provide any info on water provided by the township? The water report appears to be lacking information. Any tips on what you are doing on your process would also be helpful. I am in the process of setting up an all grain process.
Thanks!!

I'd like to piggy back this request for the Plymouth Township area. I'm going to send a sample to Ward Labs soon unless someone already has the information. Thanks!

i do not have a specific water report. I do know that the water is pretty good though. Chris at the former GLI, used the tap water and just added some gypsum.

I'm in Jenkintown, and I got a report more than a year ago, and I think chloride was the highest ion. You have to ask for the aesthetic standards to get the ion info. To follow the Primer, I dilute 2-3:1 RO to tap and add back CaCl and sometimes gypsum depending on style. That may be unnecessary, but I've been doing it all along since I didn't want to screw anything up once I started AG.

If anyone would like to stop by, the GLUB Club will be having a group brew day on 4/13 at my place. We will be brewing our beers for the NHC Club night that day. I will most likely have the smoker going. If you're interested in joinging the club, or would like to brew yourself, feel free to stop by (or get in touch ahead of time). All are welcome.

Just a follow up. I'll have some pulled pork going in the smoker. We'll have at this time at least 6, if not more, brewers. Again, all are welcome. PM for an address.
