Posted in thread: Post Your Preferred Water Profile per Style on 05-26-2016 at 06:26 AM
For the brewers that build thier water from scratch, I thought it would be interesting to see
what water profiles people like for the style of beer they are brewing. Although there are some
Posted in thread: Ward Labs water report for San Diego (Miramar)? on 05-13-2016 at 12:45 AM
I live in Escondido which is north San Diego County. Below is my water report from Ward labs.
It doesn't come from the same treatment plant as where you will be living but looking at the
2014 annual r...
Posted in thread: How much lactic acid is too much? on 05-10-2016 at 06:31 PM
From what I have read in the past a general rule of thumb is not more than 1.5ml per gal.
However, anything over 2.0ml per gal should be avoided. So it sounds like you are right at that
threshold of b...

I actually got the chilling process down to just over 4 mins. I realized the temp sensors take
5 to 10 seconds to stabilize so I was able to shorten up the time by 30-40 seconds. This is
only a testam...
Posted in thread: have two pumps - why or why not should i build a single tier? on 05-06-2016 at 02:05 AM
Unless you need a smaller footprint of a 2 tier, I would go single. Aside from the expense of a
2nd pump that's the only advantage I see. Also, if (or when) you go automation you will
definitely need ...

There wouldn't be a link per se but I could send you a file of the drawing. You will need
Sketchup to open it though. May I ask why you would want the file to this?
Posted in thread: Counteracting Added Bicarbonates with Acid on 05-04-2016 at 10:37 PM
Thank you very much you 2. One more question for Martin..... I have the support version of
Bru'n Water and when I add pickling lime it changes the sulfate and chloride in the finished
water profile. I...

I keep reading on how you should only add pickling lime or baking soda to raise the alkalinity.
But I haven't read about using those 2 minerals to add just calcium or sodium. Sometimes when
Posted in thread: High Chloride to Sulfate Ratio on 05-02-2016 at 08:09 PM
I've gone to both extremes. For a "Northeast" IPA I just did, trying to imitate the softer,
rounder mouthfeel of those beers, I went 200ppm Chlorides and 50ppm Sulfate. I definitely got
the desired re...
