Can you recommend some additions to make my water better for brewing?
I think I have pretty good tap water but after checking my PH and conversion efficiency on the last brew, I believe there is room for improvement.
I only had a 90.8 conversion efficiency and a pH of 4.6 according to the test strips.
I added 1 tbsp of 5.2 and 1 tbsp of gypsum to the mash tun before adding the grains. Should I have waited until the grains were in before adding the chemicals? I now believe the gypsum was a mistake based on the low PH.
According to my municipal water report:
Thanks for any help...
