I'm just curious to know what some of you veterans think about brewing salts, pH stabilizers (like 5.2), etc. I live in an area with pure tap water. The water quality sheet reports absolutely no minerals or impurities (lucky Hawaii water).
So some people use salts, gypsum, etc to improve hardness of water to mimic popular brewing areas like in England or what have you. But as a whole (extract, PM, and AG), do water additives really make a difference IF your water is already clean?
Thanks in advance
