I should have mentioned I was in Las Vegas. So Lake Mead water which is very hard water but I
think makes a great IPA beer. Don't know what my water analysis is - my brother in law works
for Southern ...

I don't think the OP cares so much about efficiency and if you're talking about chasing those
points, I fully agree. That thread you referenced is indeed excellent as a primer, but I would
say that mo...

Unless your water is TERRIBLE for brewing, don't waste your time with spread sheets and online

Nobody is saying that "YOU MUST REHYDRATE!" Again you're exaggerating because we must have hurt
your feelings. What we are saying is "You probably should" (if you want the consistently best

Yes, I, and others, said that just because someone is making good beer doesn't mean they are

The only "scientists" brought up in this thread were the two you referenced. Don't get me
