Default Any help on water chemistry?

Finally after two years got a water report and its as follows:

Sodium - 13
Potassium - 1
Calcium - 66
Mag - 5
Hardness - 186
Sulfate - 7
Chloride - 42
Carbonate - 6
Bicarbonate - 162
Alkalinity - 143

What does this mean - what is best style? I ordered a book on water chemistry but excited to see how my water!!!

Its not that bad, but acidification is probably a requirement for most brewing with that water. If you want to learn more, you will have to study more. The Water Knowledge page on the Bru'n Water website may help explain things for you.
