    Thanks for the info guys. I think my questions are answered. Someday I may try to brew a beer
    with the Burton water profile, but it sounds like it's a bit extreme. I'll go ahead with RO
    water and trea...

    I decided to purchase an RO system that will allow me to do 10 gallon batches with RO water if
    I so choose (modifying the water first of course). I'll be installing the system next week.I'm
    going to b...

    Thanks again for the suggestions. You've all been a lot of help.

    Thanks for all of the great information. I think I need to do a bit of research on RO systems
    (any recommendations?). I definitely like the idea of starting with a blank slate every

    Thanks aj. From everything I'm reading, it sounds like RO dilution (either store-bought or with

    questions.U...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I read the extract brewing relevant parts of How to Brew when I
    started extract brewing, but haven't gone back and thoroughly read the mashing chapter. I
    recall thumbing thr...

    Thanks for the quick replies! My mash pH is too high, I don't get good conversion, my beers are
    often thin and I have run into that "harsh, soapy taste". I've also noticed that I'm not
    getting the hop...

    Hi all,Thanks for all of the interesting info in this forum. I've been brewing AG for about 6
    months and have recently come to the conclusion that some of my mash troubles (high mash pH,
    low mash effi...

    Funny you should say that, Bobby_M (and others) actually alluded to the phenomenon of solving
    nonexistent problems in that thread.

    Thanks for the response. I realized last night that I would have to break the seal to dump the
    yeast anyway and that I probably overthought the whole thing. I'll look around for the thread
    you mention...
