Default Water Chemistry/beersmith question?

http://www.ycua.org/DWSDLabReports/D...9(SWPlant).pdf

Got everything filled out from the site posted above by someone here,(can't find the tread)


Bi-Carbonate Alkalinity mg/L 86 75


the last thing i need to fill into beersmith is HCO3 according to the site... is it saying the HCO3 is 75 PPM?

seems kinda high when everything else is like 1ish.

Yup the HCO3 is 75.
Brewing Range = 0-50 ppm for pale, base-malt only beers, 50-150 ppm for amber colored, toasted malt beers, 150-250 ppm for dark, roasted malt beers.
