Well then you've already done what I would do. Did you do step 2 (taste with sulfate
augmentation in the glass)? If not give it a try. People generally think they can do a lot more
by fiddling with mi...

For an initial attempt, that level of mineralization should be fine. While I prefer more
sulfate and less chloride in an IPA water, you should find that your proposed water will be OK
too. The main th...

89 is a good starting level for chloride and 180 is a good starting level for sulfate unless

points in ...

Another quick question - do you generally fix the pre boil volume or the pre boil OG? This is
really where I am getting confused.It seems hard to dial both. I am generally seeing 1 gal/hr
boiled off a...

It should be ok. Being off 10 points really isn't that bad. I wouldn't reboil or try anything
