    Martin: I know nothing of the Great Lakes Compact so maybe you're correct. It sounds like the
    best way to make sure is to just send a sample to Ward Labs. That way I don't have to guess
    which distribu...

    I'm in Buffalo Grove so I may be on the Jardin North distribution but not sure. I guess it's
    good to see that most of the numbers stay pretty close but over a full point in pH (from 6.6 to
    7.8) is pre...

    Titleist... I found those pages just before you posted them! Thanks for the links. See above
    for what I found and what is missing. Thanks again... are you LM water in NVille?

    Hmm, surprise. Chicago published this stuff for 2015 (quarters 1, 2 and 3). My old numbers were
    Ca 34, Mg 12, Na 12, Cl 21, SO4: 27 with a bicarb number of 138ppm and a pH of 6.6. The site
    published n...

    My old sheets from Ward show a pH of 6.6. I also know 2 commercial brewers in my area who use
    Lake Michigan water and they have both told me that the water's pH was 6.6. But that was years
    ago. I have...

    I'm in Chicago's NW burbs and have Lake Michigan water that I have been using for brewing for
    about 16 years. I had Ward Labs test it in 2006 and again in 2009 and the numbers were almost
    identical. I...

    Okay guys, another update. Since the vinegar treatment on my meter, it has been acting much
    better. Reading very accurately and calibrating properly. This morning I'm making a version of
    Jamil's Vienn...

    Wow, Matt.... good stuff. The only thing I can say is that when I take a small sample for the
    mash, I have a frozen metal cup I use to quickly lower the sample temp and I stir the mash like
    I'm gettin...

    I could certainly try that. Looks like I might be brewing on Wednesday this week. Very simple
    recipe... 9 lbs of Rahr Pale Ale malt, 4 ounces of C40 and 4 ounces of Special B. I'm going to
    make it wit...
